Official: Parents sought counseling for bomb plot student
“He's just a soft-spoken little kid”
A teenager accused of plotting to bomb his high school is a straight-A student whose parents sought help from mental health experts when he slammed his head into a wall last week, authorities said Monday.
Ryan Schallenberger's parents took him to a hospital three days before his Saturday arrest after he made a 4-inch indentation in the wallboard, prosecutor Jay Hodge said at a court hearing.
Schallenberger, 18, was not badly injured, but his parents also called a local mental health clinic that offered no help, Hodge said. A spokesman for the clinic would not confirm or deny any contact with the family, citing state law. Read more

This young man had the world ahead of him...He came from a background, that financially, left alot to be desired. He had won the Newberry Award, and had a FULL four year ride to Clemson University....Do you believe any person, who is not in need of mental help, would give all of this up for a few minutes of fame? This scholarship and his brains would have given him things he would have never been able to achieve on his own. I think this whole situation is so sad..
