I am continually mystified as to why people plan criminal acts, then announce the plan on social media or some other public-facing medium and then are surprised to be caught. I know some people are stupid, but I also think a lot of them assume people will think it's a joke and ignore it. Given the times we live in, even previously apathetic people are more alert for that kind of thing.

Harris and Klebold are the pioneers of telling/hinting to random acquaintances that some shit is going to be pulled. Although both had journals to register what they had in mind, Harris and Klebold caught the attention of the police before the Columbine incident and Harris used to have a website to diss people he disliked.

That should've raised a red flag to the authorities and bear in mind that Brooks' parents told the police about Harris' unfriendly attitude towards their son but this and other warning alerts fell on deaf ears.

With that being said, the imbeciles from Columbine Copycat Legacy think that they'll have the same luck their idols had with the authorities' incompetence back in 1999. As a result, you have these numbnuts trying to enact this but in a poorly thought-out and careless way.

She makes drama when things don't go her way, she's all about "suffering" and "pain" even though she probably never experienced real struggle in her life, she dosen't give two shits about no one but herself and she has the typical "woe is me" attitude, blaming others for things they have nothing to do with. Souvannarath is nothing but a spoiled bitch.
She's more or less where she belongs and will, for the good of society, stay there for a long time. If she had her freedom she probably eventually would have actually murdered someone.

Perhaps, but she could easily realize in seven years if she avoids most social contact in prison the way she has throughout most of her life that she should just go ahead and say the right things at her parole hearing. Granted, she may not be all that convincing, but if one really wants to leave to presumably spread hate propaganda and egg others on to acts potentially more successful than what transpired here (or maybe try the same thing 5 years down the line with a little more hindsight), then they will give a college try at least. If Corrections Canada are concerned about the risk of releasing her early, they'd have to find someone in jail she was foolish enough to slip a hint of her future plans (completely believable in Lindsay's case), else, there's a strong possibility she could be out, especially given she had no prior criminal record.

It's doomed to failure, but I think it would be amusing if some spree-killer fanboy developed a fixation on her and tried to bust her out of prison. All joking aside, I really think that being obsessed with things like mass shootings, serial killers, and the like should be regarded as a pathology unto itself, at least when the fixation is as deep as Lindsay's. Now I'm not saying we should lock up spree killer fanboys for that alone, but it should be grounds for the cops to take a look at you. If someone constantly talked about being a burglar, how awesome stealing is, and discussed techniques for fencing stolen goods, no one would object if the cops investigated to see if perhaps he had a shed full off other people's stuff. Why should be it be any different for something much more serious?

Glad others here are still keeping eyes and ears open about her. Was just coming here to post about this.

Basically she is appealing to get a fixed sentence as then she would have a definite release date. As I posted earlier in thread back when she was sentenced, she is basically going to do life as she will be at the mercy of the parole board on whether she would get released. With a fixed sentence, she would be guaranteed a get out of jail card. But with original sentence imposed, there is no guarantee she'd ever get out.

I guess the realisation that she may never get out prison, or will be over 50 before the parole board may decide she is "rehabilitated" is scaring the shit out of her now.

It will fail, given magnitude of what would have happened here. I'd LOL if the appeal court decides judge was too lenient and 10 years before eligibility was not enough and doubled it to 20!

I will post anything worthy I come across in news or court filings. I will see if I can get her Notice of Appeal although they are typically pretty bland documents. Its the factums in an appeal that contain all the substantial stuff.

Glad she is still active in some form tho! May get some new info or shit down thr road out of this.

Did we ever find nudes of her?
They exist per the comments made by judge at sentencing. They were also subjected to a sealing or confidentiality order so no way those are getting viewed. You'd need an insider at the court to get a peek cause you ain't getting any order to unseal as you'd have to show they have some value to or in the interests of the public. And jacking off to them sadly isn't a compelling enough reason. LOL There would have to be merit as to why the public should be able to view nude pics.

So not sure if you now knowing they exist but you won't be able to access them is good or bad for ya. There could be others out there somewhere, but I'd think they'd have come to light by now.

Lindsay Souvannarath appeals life sentence in Halifax Valentine’s Day mall shooting plot
By Brett Bundale The Canadian Press

American Lindsay Souvannarath arrives at provincial court in Halifax on Friday, March 6, 2015.
The Canadian Press/Andrew Vaughan

An American woman who plotted to go on a Valentine’s Day shooting spree at a Halifax mall is appealing her sentence of life in prison, calling it “manifestly harsh and excessive.”

Lindsay Souvannarath was sentenced in April after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in a plan that would have seen two shooters open fire at the Halifax Shopping Centre food court in 2015.

A motion to set a date for the appeal hearing is expected to be considered next week by Justice David Farrar of the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal.

In her notice of appeal, Souvannarath argues that her sentence of life imprisonment with no chance of parole for 10 years should be revised to a fixed sentence of 12 to 14 years.

The Chicago-area woman provides five grounds for appeal, including suggesting that the presiding judge committed an error by imposing a burden on her to prove she was remorseful and had “renounced anti-social beliefs.”

She also argues that Supreme Court Justice Peter Rosinski was wrong to compare the conspiracy to a terrorism offence and conclude it was equivalent in “moral blameworthiness, gravity and danger” to the public.

The 26-year-old woman added that the judge offended the principle of parity by imposing a dramatically lengthier sentence on her than on co-conspirator Randall Shepherd.

Souvannarath pleaded guilty last year, several months after Shepherd – a Halifax man described in court as the “cheerleader” of the foiled shooting plot – was sentenced to a decade in jail.

A third alleged conspirator, 19-year-old James Gamble, was found dead in his Halifax-area home a day before the planned attack.

The conspiracy can be traced back to December 2014, when Souvannarath and Gamble began an online relationship, exchanging explicit intimate photographs and a fascination with mass shootings.

Thousands of Facebook messages between the two provide details of the conspiracy and Souvannarath’s obsession with Nazism, the 1999 Columbine shooting and a plot she nicknamed “Der Untergang” – a Valentine’s Day shooting rampage at a Halifax mall.

The massacre was to end with their own suicides.

Souvannarath left her home in Geneva, Ill., on Feb 13, 2015, and flew to Halifax on a one-way ticket, allegedly carrying her “death outfit” and books on serial killers in her luggage.

But the plan began to fall apart before she landed in Nova Scotia.

Acting on a tip, police surrounded Gamble’s home outside Halifax. He agreed over the phone to come outside, but instead shot himself in the head.

Meanwhile, Shepherd went to the airport on a city bus to meet Souvannarath, but was arrested while waiting.

Officers also sent online photos of Souvannarath to border agents at the Halifax airport, instructing them to detain anyone matching her description arriving on a flight from Chicago via New York.

When Souvannarath arrived, she was detained by the Canada Border Services Agency.

The arrests made international headlines and shocked Nova Scotians. The spectre of shooters opening fire in the food court of a popular mall threatened thousands of shoppers and workers and unsettled the city for months.

One judge noted that it was difficult to imagine a crime more damaging to a community’s sense of peace and security, while a Crown lawyer said the “horrible plan would have changed the face of Halifax forever.”

Rosinski cited the explicit intention to create mass panic and undermine the community’s sense of security as an aggravating factor in the sentencing.

“They intended to maximize dead and wounded casualties,” the judge wrote in his decision.
