Jared Cano, Tampa High School Bomb Plot Suspect: I Just "Did the Dumbest Thing Ever"

The cops say Jared Cano planned to set off explosive devices at a Tampa high school.
Tampa police arrested 17-year-old Jared Michael Cano yesterday in an alleged plot to set off some explosive devices at Freedom High School.

Aside from his criminal history, which includes a recent burglary arrest, Cano's Facebook profile also gives a little insight into what kind of character the kid might be.

He was previously expelled from Freedom High School in Tampa, but according to Facebook, he's in the 2012 class of the "University of Marijuana," studying "how to grow weed."

That may explain the marijuana possession and cultivation charges he's also facing from yesterday's arrest.

He lists his favorite movie as Law Abiding Citizen, the Gerard Butler movie that involves several scenes involving bombs as part of a vigilante-based story line, and his favorite book as "Hahaha Books."

Under "About Jared," he says, "i dont give a fuckkk... i smoke weed all day got a problem u can fuckk offf im real, ima tell you straight up, if you cant handle the truth get the fuck off my facebook."

Well, we won't be getting "the fuck off" his Facebook, because there are a few more interesting tidbits to be found.

His most recent status update, posted just before police contacted him, says, "i jut (sic) did the dumbest thing ever!" and a friend commented on the post saying, "You can say that again."

Another post talks about a wireless network he found called "FBI_SURVEILLANCE_VAN" and comments with copious spelling errors, "i aint fuckin wit no FBI agents lmao...."

This was a few hours after he posted, "like i dont think its possible for me to be any fuckin higher..." and many previous pot-smoking Facebook posts.

Cano previously posted "m so tired of everything" and has several pictures of himself drinking malt liquor for all of his 24 friends to see.

And here's a picture he posted with a large blade:

This kid has some serious issues,  Where are the parents? They had to know about his addiction to marijuana and alcohol.  He seems to come from a dysfunctional family.  The issues start at home not school.   Why werent the parents monitoring what he did?  may be the parents were and still are in denial.  Cant blame the scool there are some personnel who really care about kids in scool and are not there for a paycheck!   The fault lies with him.....

yes he did some wrongs but everything that is done has a reason , we dont know his reasonings or what has happened to him in the past i think if we knew more wed understand more i think people should just listen to the FULL story before judging

Riiiight..  because since there is a reason, and depending on his past, then that must make it ok to blow his school mates and principles into multiple, bloody pieces of gooey meat chunks resembling dog food, with his homemade bombs.  Either you're a troll or a glue huffer.  But sounds like you need to get your raging hormones in check before getting a fire crotch over a would be killer.

1. Yeah, JaredCano should be arrested, which is my personal opinion. The guy sounds like he's a bit twisted (but this kind of behaviour doesn't just pop out of thin air-- this is a learned behaviour), and the world needs to be rid of people who are interested inharming innocent victims, especially in a public institution where kidsare probably not feeling the best kind of safety...

--and while we're on the subject of publicschools, it's a high school.The attendees are teenagers going through puberty. While the negative effectsof these adolescents may live with a person and torment the person in the wayit's shaped them into adulthood, you have to remember that a lot of kids arejust "trying to fit in." But definitely I know what it's like to feellike harming the teenage assholes, but I've never acted upon it because that'sjust a flat out dumb move.

2. Facebook is a joke. And by that, I mean thatFacebook is playing a joke on society. So I suppose a more accurate way torephrase that is "society is a joke." When you have a Facebook andyou are volunteering information, people are going to find ways to twist itaround to try to understand your motives. About anything. And I'm not sayingthat it's wrong of them to assume he had these problems they should haveinferred from his status updates, but come on. Just because he's a heavy stoner does not mean anything.Maybe if they paid more attention to his pictures of guzzling alcohol they'dget a more justified explanation. I don't know if you have noticed, but if youturn to anyone you know who smokes pot, they are probably more agreeable, andfar too lazy to even get up from the couch, or whatever relaxed positionthey're in. Yeah, this guy is screwed in the head, but it's probably (I'd saydefinitely, though I don't know the situation, but speaking from experience, Imean) the alcohol. Alcohol is a depressant and makes people belligerent. Ifyou're going to pin all his problems on pot, it's probably that he's been drinking, then smoking, which, if you didn't know, willemphasize the bad mood by way of alcohol emphasis. All down to alcohol, I'mtelling you. So when The Pulp used his frequent mention of marijuana from his Facebook,I got kind of irked. If you go back in time, a lot of things were changed fromprotesters, who were probably all high. Well, not all of them, but all thestoners I know justpromote peace and harmony (what a fruity thing to say). 

I just think it's ridiculous. Why is Hendly pinning the majority of Cano's problems on marijuana? Is he a Republican who has never smoked pot? Ithas been my observation that the people who talk so badly about marijuana are typically Republicans or Conservatives who havenever smoked it (though I'm not saying pot is the solution to everything, just stating my observations).

While Cano is an idiot, I'd look past theridiculous status updates about weed and perhaps dig deeper into his home life,the possibility of being an alcoholic at 17, and just basically the whys of his(potential) actions. (Though "potential" seems like I'm givinghim the benefit of the doubt, which I definitely don't think he deserves... Ithink the students should feel at least a tad bit safer...)

And I think I must add that public schools arefull of teachers who are teachers because they need a job. Not because theycare, but because they have the minimum requirements and the Florida schoolsystem is just looking for someone, anyone who willteach. So basically the school system is: teachers who don't give two shitsabout students except for their lesson plans and their pay, and ThePowers-that-be of the Florida Education hiring insensitive numskulls withtheir hands open for money in this stupid economy, instead of holding theirhands open for the vulnerable teenagers on the verge of adulthood... It's quitedifficult to come across a teacher who cares. Point blank. I'm not saying allCano's problems could be solved if a teacher listens to him, or at leastacknowledges a possibly irrational behaviour from any of his/her students, butdammit, if it makes a tiny difference, at least it makes a difference. 

No one gives a shit about these things. They justassume that Facebook holds all the answers... Typically when people don'tunderstand "why," they turn to the easiest source that gives them thetiniest bit of a reason, and leave it at that. Simpletons. That's what theyare. Simpletons. Facebook cannot be your end-all, be-all answer. Look deeperthan a fucking page on the internet. The world is a lot more complicatedthan just technology can solve.

It's really odd how you assume others assume that facebook holds the answers.  However, the FB account is controlled by someone nutty enough to think it's OK to make bombs to blow up his peers at school.  That could explain why his favorite quote "lessons not learned in blood are soon forgotten" is so meaningful to him.  But even more odd is how you are defensive of the notion of people noticing what he says on his FB page.  That said, what ever kinds of teachers there are and how much they value their jobs, is way besides the point here.  Did you really expect people to sit around and start caring about the jobs the teachers do in context of this premeditated murder plan?   

Faye de Lucca

Well it was more of a "If we had teachers who cared enough to listen" kind of thing. And I suppose the comment could have been better written, because I feel like I didn't get my point across to you guys at all.

No, you shouldn't ignore Facebook statuses. But it is my personal opinion that Hendley put way too much emphasis on the marijuana smoking being the reason, judging by his facebook statuses. One of the points I was trying to get across was that there are way more things to take into consideration, one of which being his family life, and more of a suggestion that perhaps our school system doesn't really give a crap about who they hire. I do realize that should have been another rant for another comment or something...

But, I will admit after I had this discussion with a friend, that marijuana -does- elevate whatever mood a person is in, which I failed to think about, being that Cane has quite a record for things (the list is very long, but I'm sure you guys knew that), I take back my statement about the influence of marijuana.

With all that being said, I'm not the kind of person who just trolls websites and tries to start fights. In the heat of the moment I wrote all that out, when usually things come better when a person is bit calmer. I'm always open to the possibilities that I could be wrong about certain things.

The bottom line is: I'm glad he was caught.

If you RTFA, it makes mention of the alcohol. Click on the fuckin' link it's just a weed advertisement for this ballsucker. Go rip the bong one more time.

Suck on MY ballsack, BILLY!
Suck on MY ballsack, BILLY!

It -mentions- alcohol. I'm not denying that. It also mentions and puts a hefty emphasis on weed. Are YOU hitting the bong, or is it you pay attention to what you -want- to pay attention to? I "RTFA," and if you read mine, you'd see that I even pointed it out. Maybe YOU hit the bong way too many times.

maybe people will  open their eye's to the trouble of the so called kool kids? what about the things people have done to this kid to bring him to the point of JUST PLANING this act! we never look at this do we?  we lock them up,not seeing the hurt that may have been done to them. being a gay kid in high school, the names and things said would have made me go nuts also. if not for great friends. but not everyone gets that chance to have foundation in friends. see where it came from and help make things right! locking them up is not the key here. good luck jared glad no one got hurt,but you. and thats sad.

You realise this kid is just a little dick and probably was one of the guys that called the gay kids in his school names and bullied them.

Yes, I agree, the news media reports nothing about why these troubled teens are driven to commit these crimes. Why was he suspended from school ? What type of school was it ?What "materials" were found in his room ??? And most importantly, What prescription drugs was he being given by his doctor ???

Marilyn Manson. Who the fuck cares? What type of school was it? A big high school with a bunch of books? What materials? You want a fuckin recipe? Put the fuckin keyboard down Nancy Drew
