The Cleveland Elementary School shooting was a mass school shooting psyop, taking place on January 29, 1979 in San Diego, California. In San Diego, California, shots were fired at a public elementary school. The principal and a custodian were killed. Eight children and a police officer were injured. Bob Geldof wrote the song "I don't like Mondays" about this event.

Official story

• The Cleveland Elementary School shooting took place on January 29, 1979, at a public elementary school in San Diego, California. The principal and a custodian [2] were killed; 8 children and 1 police officer were injured. A 16-year-old girl, Brenda Spencer, who lived in a house across the street from the school, was convicted of the shootings. Tried as an adult, she pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and assault with a deadly weapon, and was given an indefinite sentence. As of 2018, she remains in prison.

• A reporter reached Spencer by phone while she was still in the house after the shooting, and asked her why she did it. She answered: "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day", which inspired Bob Geldof to write the Boomtown Rats song "I Don't Like Mondays".
• On the morning of Monday, January 29, 1979, Spencer began shooting from her home at children who were waiting outside Cleveland Elementary School for principal Burton Wragg (aged 53) to open the gates. She injured eight children. Wragg was killed while trying to help the children. Custodian Mike Suchar (aged 56) was killed while trying to pull a student to safety. A police officer (aged 28) responding to a call for assistance during the incident was wounded in the neck as he arrived.
• In early 1978, staff at a facility for problem pupils, to which Spencer had been referred for truancy, informed her parents that she was suicidal. That summer, Spencer, who was known to hunt birds in the neighborhood, was arrested for shooting out the windows of Cleveland Elementary with a BB gun, and burglary. In December, a psychiatric evaluation arranged by her probation officer recommended Spencer be admitted to a mental hospital for depression, but her father refused to give permission. For Christmas 1978, he gave her a Ruger 10/22 semi-automatic .22 caliber rifle with a telescopic sight and 500 rounds of ammunition. Spencer later said, "I asked for a radio and he bought me a gun." When asked why he might have done that, she answered, "I felt like he wanted me to kill myself."

  • Looking back at the ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ video I was interested to see the apparent setting for the classroom was an isolated building on a hill in the British countryside. The lingering opening shot caught my eye, with the evidence of sheep having been snagged on the barbed wire of the rickety fence the camera looks through. Just a thought. The metaphor of snagged sheep certainly fits the psy0p agenda.
  • The very end of the video is interesting too, as we see the children clearing away props

from the set. We are shown that it was staged.

  • For what it’s worth, as a 12 year old, I never did understand why the school was depicted as it was in the video, isolated on a hillside – it seemed weird then.
  • With the benefit of hindsight, it appears possible that this was perhaps a little foreshadowing of THE British school shooting in the little Scottish town of Dunblane a full 17 years later in 1996.
  • These things have a way of unraveling pretty quickly and by the time I went back and counted 16 children ( yes that was the number of supposedly massacred children from Dunblane) in the ‘I Don’t Like Mondays’ video, with 11 girls and 5 boys ( the same ratio as the Dunblane dead), I wasn’t left with that much doubt that it is indeed, foreshadowing. Wow, there goes another piece of my childhood I see in a very different light. - TomD27
