    (April 3, 1962- )
    Born in San Diego, California
    At age 16, went on a shooting spree at Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego (January 29, 1979)
    Sentenced to prison for 25 years to life
    She wounded eight children and a police officer and killed Principal Burton Wragg and custodian Mike Suchar.
    Asked for a motive, she told a reporter, 'I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day.'
    She told police negotiators during a six-hour stand-off, 'I had no reason for it and it was a lot of fun.'
    She also said, 'It was like shooting ducks in a pond' and 'They looked like a herd of cows standing around, it was really easy pickings.'
    The rifle she used in her killing spree was a Christmas gift from her father.
    She claims that she was drunk and high on PCP at the time of the shooting and that her attorney conspired with the state to suppress her drug test results.
    At a parole hearing, she said she had been physically and sexually abused by her father, but none of her siblings supported her claims (2005).
    She was a precursor to the school shootings of the 90s.
    Due to dumb luck, none of the children she hit died.
    She has been turned down for parole every time she applied.
    She inspired the song 'I Don't Like Mondays' by The Boomtown Rats.
    In prison, she received treatment for drug and alcohol abuse and took anger management classes.
    Although her method for coping was extreme, doesn't nearly everyone get the blues on Monday?
