Middle School is hell. It doesn't matter where you are or where you come from; it's still hell. In one American middle school, Larry King (not to be confused with the former newscaster of the same name) was showing effeminate signs of turning into a drag queen or transexual; Brandon McInerney was showing hypermasculine signs of turning into a white supremacist. Naturally they fell in mutually abusive teenage love, and Brandon shot Larry in the head. In Brandon's first trial (Aug-Sep 1 2011) the jury dead-locked, resulting in a mistrial. As you can see from the video clip, Brandon has acquired a few new admirers, who think he is too cute to fry for his cold-blooded crime.
The presence that thus so strangely rose beside the waters is expressive of what in the ways of a thousand years man had come to desire.... She [the masculine soul desired by Larry King] is older than the rocks among which she sits; like the vampire, she has been dead many times, and learned the secrets of the grave; and has been a diver in deep seas, and keeps their fallen day about her; and trafficked for strange webs with Eastern merchants; and, as Leda, was the mother of Helen of Troy, and, as Saint Anne, the mother of Mary; and all this has been to her but as the sound of lyres and flutes, and lives only in the delicacy with which it has moulded the changing lineaments and tinged the eyelids and the hands. The fancy of a perpetual life, sweeping together ten thousand experiences, is an old one; and modern thought has conceived the idea of humanity as wrought upon by, and summing up in itself, all modes of thought and life. Certainly Lady Brandon might stand as the embodiment of the old fancy, the symbol of the modern idea.

Rise to fame
On the morning of February 12, 2008, at E. O. Green High School in Oxnard, CA, Brandon McInerney shot Larry King, because King had been pestering him about wanting to be his Valentine, desiring to go out with him, etc.
Brandon McInerney was tried for shooting Larry King August 2011, which resulted in a mistrial. A second trial is scheduled for October 2011.
Premeditation: In July 2008, Newsweek reported that a day or two before the shooting King asked McInerney to be his Valentine in front of McInerney's friends. When McInerney endured teasing because of the incident, he told one of King's friends to say goodbye to him "because she would never see Him [King] again".
