Little Pussy Retards like Eric Hainstock

There are just too many of these. Little pussy retard Eric Hainstock was mad at the principle for disciplining him for throwing a stapler at a teacher. He then proceeded to murder the principle in cold blood. Because he was mad. About a stapler. He threw an object at a teacher and was mad that he was in (minor) trouble for it. Now he is going to jail for the rest of his life (hopefully). WHAT THE FUCK.

    Wow..I cant say as I fully agree with any of you. I went to that hell-hole for 11 years (k-10) and I HAD to transfer schools. If I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t have graduated because I would have dropped out rather than deal with some of the things that go on there. I knew Eric, I also knew Mr. Klang. One of Mr. Klang’s kids was in my class, one of the few people I considered a friend. Mr. Klang WAS an incredible man, very nice, willing to give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I don’t blame him for what happened, I would blame EVERYBODY that Eric or anybody complained to that turned their head and left a blind eye to the problems. Eric lived right over the hill from me & rode my bus. Yea he was troubled, but I never had a problem with him..and I think that was due to the fact that I treated him like a normal human being, unlike many of the people at Weston. Sure there were a few others who were nice to him, but I know there were about 10 x’s more that weren’t. “Secret Account” must be buddies with the “in-crowd”..that or they are COMPLETELY blind. I know Eric was picked on and I know he DID complain to school authorities about and it doesn’t surprise me ONE BIT that nothing was done. I was picked on alot there too, nothing was ever done about it when I complained either, and had it not been for my upbringing & my family support, I would’ve been a mess too. Since I know that his home life was shit, I see why he seemed to think what he did was the only way to handle his problems. I don’t agree with his choice AT ALL, I think that if he seriously just wanted talk, he wouldn’t have brought numerous guns to school and had extra ammo. Yes, what he did was wrong, and I don’t think anybody argues that, but I also think there is a lot behind the story that most people don’t know. And as far as him being a bully and whatnot, guess what, if you were picked on as much as he was, you’d defend yourself in those situations too! How do you expect someone to get along with others when those “others” are ridiculing him, making fun of him, and beating him up constantly?!?! Honestly people, listen to yourselves…if people treated you the way they did Eric, you’d become a hellion too..you wouldn’t stand around and try to make friends with those sort of people! Yea I know, it’s easier to just point the finger at the troubled kid who has a shitty home life, doesn’t do well in school, and acts out, but guess what..that’s the sort of attitude that starts accelerating problems like Eric’s. Like I said, I don’t agree with what he did, and I think he should have to deal with the consequences of his actions, but I really think people need to also look at the big picture and see that he is a victim as well, and the community as well as the school officials need to wake up and start doing something about the bullying when it’s reported, instead of waiting for it to “just go away”. I still go to Weston every now and then for sporting events and whatnot, and guess what, it hasn’t changed much. Yea, people are a little more worried about security, but that’s about it. People still act the same, and well, they probably always will. Which is really sad. My thoughts and prayers are with both Eric AND the Klang family. RIP John

  2. Great point, Mitch. The system may not be empowered to catch all these cases. It’s a fuzzy line when the government gets between kids and their parents, and as a parent, I know I’m not comfortable with other people deciding what is best for my child.

    As an aside, while I’m happy to provide a forum for some good discussion like this, I wrote this blog post when I was very angry at what did and does seem like an unspeakably violent act with little or no provocation. I don’t know any of the parties involved and I’m just ranting and calling people names. If you google Eric Hainstock this post comes up as #7 currently. It’s a little off-putting, frankly.

    There were so many Weston people who tried to help Eric. No one will ever know what was done for him by so many. I don’t even know if Eric knows the hundreds of hours that were put in on him. He was given opportunities to escape that life, but he, and others who thought they were helping him, undermined every effort. I feel that the same judge who had put him back in the home so many years ago, being the same judge for the murder trial was somewhat ironic.

    Staff had been trying for years to assist the family in any way. The school cannot buy Ritalin and hand it out to children. In some cases, that would be the only way a child who needs it, would get it!

    Eric has been shoved in a locker, or so he says. However, I can’t even count how many times he got in one to be ufnny and had to convince someone to close the door for him! There are always two sides to every story.
    I believe that he was called names. He had never learned basic social skills. He frequently called people names, poked fun, teased and belittled others. He was often sent for counseling to discuss his lack of ability getting along with others. When you are in a school with under 30 children in a graduating class, everyone knows everyone else. You go to school with the same students for years.

    I disagree that the best place for children is in the home. As a teacher, I see dozens of children who live like Eric. However, unless they are admitted to the emergency room with life threatening injuries, it seems like nothing is done. Society needs to change, but at this point, saving children, may not be politically correct.

  4. Keri, thank you for your thoughts.
    I am so glad that someone else has noticed how the school and social services and the sauk county government has of course claimed no responsibility to this CHILD. Eric is a child people, wake up. We are to protect the children, not ourselves and why was no one else reprimanded during this. What about his father and stepmother. What about the school that knew about the abuse and Eric not having the things he needed and living the way he did. Anyone else would of lost thier child, but not Shawn Hainstock. And why not?

    HOW DARE YOU CARI INSULT MY COMMUNITY AND SCHOOL!

    For all you mindless idiots like Cari on this page I think that you should read this.

    I was a new student at Weston 2 years ago, I experienced nothing but kindness from these people and this community.I never knew Eric Hainstock personally, but I never once heard or saw anyone call him a “fag” or hert or make fun of him.Nor have a really honestly seen anyone made fun of at all.The teachers at this school help everyone, our school had 3 special ed teachers with countless aids BEFORE THE SHOOTING!Mr.Klang was a wonderful man, who out of his own pocket bought Eric Hainstock shoes.Who even after Eric through a stapler at a teachers head, there was a chip and crack in the wall where the stapler was thrown.Mr.Klang tried to help him.In any other school he would have got expelled, or some kind of punishment.He got minor stuff.Eric was mad because he had chew and Mr.Klang found it.I know because when I was hiding in his office trying not to get shot I found it on the desk.JOHN KLANG DID THE BEST HE COULD, OR KNEW WHAT TO DO TO HELP HIM!!!!!Now you tell me “CARI” if you would ever be a women enough to jump in front of a loaded gun just to save someone elses life. How dare you, WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? This man died trying to help other people, unselfishly trying to save other people’s lives.HE SAVED MY LIFE AND ILL BE DAMNED IF I WILL EVER LET ANYONE CALL HIM ANYTHING LESS THEN A HERO.
    Eric brought two guns in the school and if you ask me I think that he meant to kill someone. But no one brings up the fact that he had other guns in his truck and amo in his locker.He was not just going to stop at one he was going to kill others.CHILDREN JUST LIKE HIM.Who might not even have known him or made fun of him, or had know that he was made fun of at all, and if they did would have stopped it.
    Let me ask you Cari do you know what Eric was doing the night before 9.29? He was out toilet papering like a normal kid with his friends.
    I was right there when Erik walked in the school and i had it pointed at me in the office where i was standing. I thought I was gonna die that day. When I lay hudled in Mr.Klangs office hearing gun shots go off, I thought he was shooting my classmates and my friends, and I was sitting there wondering whens he coming for me?

    DO YOU HAVE ANY CLUE WHAT THATS LIKE?!?!

    No,I highly doubt you do.So maybe next time you want to share your knowledge with someone and tell them how you think you know what your actually talking about you should try to actually go through a school shooting.
    Im very sorry eric ever got picked on, or abused. Thats an awful emotional scaring to live with, and im sorry he made a decision he will have to live with for the rest of his life.But he took someone else’s life.I find it to be completely fare. HE MADE THE DECISION, IT WAS HIS CHOICE, AND OBVIOSLY WITH 2 GUNS HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING.

    Does anyone know if Eric’s mother drank any alcohol when she was pregnant with him? I am researching the link between school shooters and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.

    Lots of food for thought here…starting with the title of the blog: it wreaks of rage and bad grammar (but hey, got me to click on it).

    Let’s all keep in mind this kid is a killer. He murdered someone. Someone with a family (a long set of people who are now secondary victims of Eric’s actions). Is Eric a victim too. Sure, but Eric was part of the conscious chain to bring in other victims.

    You could say the abusing father was the cause, but maybe the father was abused and is a victim too, etc. etc, (this logic could go on forever). So all we really can deal with is the situation. Maybe learn from it and help prevent another.

    Cari’s post was good, but flawed. To question “Where was everyone?” while Eric was being abused & teased is absurd. And it takes away from his responsibility. Anyone in a school community knows that if Eric showed signs of abuse, it was probably reported repeatedly, and in every grade, to DHS.

    And teasing, well it’s no easy solution. Eric should’ve filed a lawsuit. Then they’d have listened. But he didn’t. Eric brought in two loaded weapons. I think he had more in mind than talking. Bring a gun to school and people aren’t just going to sit there and listen – it could only elicit violence. What did he really think was going to happen?

    Eric needs compassion, but that doesn’t absolve him of responsibility for his actions. Responsibility for killing another human being who most likely was there to help him. An action that Eric chose to do. Something that is going to effect everyone in that principal’s life.
    So we are left with: Can he be reformed? Can someone who made a conscious decision to end another person’s life (and possibly had a larger scale shooting in mind) be counseled to understand the consequence of his history and significance of his choices? Who knows?
    But he’s no innocent. He’s a victim, yes. But free choice is powerful stuff. And he is a killer of his own free choice. Let’s keep that in mind. And responsibility is a fair scale: the more profound the choice the steeper the cost.

    I know Eric Hainstock personally. I am not making excuses for what he did, but he is disturbed young man. Everyone has failed him. Eventhough people tried to help him, the ones he wanted the most help from ignored him. Eric needs prayers. As does the Klang family.

  11. Wow, Cari, nice comment.

    When I barf out frustrated posts like this I’m trying to express the deep confusion and anger I feel when people use disproportionate violence. This kid, whatever his circumstances, killed in innocent man in cold blood. It wasn’t rational, or fair, or justified in any way. You must agree with that.

    But I agree with you, too — this kid is a victim. It is a tragedy on many levels. You don’t prevent this by tackling the kid when he walks in armed to the school, you prevent it in the many ways you mentioned, long before that.

    Still, it’s a tough issue. I don’t want the state to come in and tell me how to raise my child. Can the state, or the church or the school really police every household?

  12. As a Mother, Child Advocate and Certified Paralegal, I am disgusted at the community that failed Eric Hainstock. This poor boy was doomed from the day he was born. Why is it that so many people watched and seen the abuse and no one stepped up to help?

    Where was the school system and medical community when this child needed help for his ADHD and learning disabilities when the family could not afford it? Where were the neighbors and DCFS while this boy was being spoon fed hot peppers and living in squaller? Where were the police and the judges when his father physically and mentally abused him and was still allowed to live with him? Where were the teachers and principal when Eric was being bullied and called a fag? Where are the parents now of the kids who bullied Eric and called him names they would not want to be called themselves? Where were the church members and faculty that seen the physical abuse spread all over Eric’s body? Where was Eric’s Mother?

    Did any of you folks follow the Cody Posey trial in New Mexico? His story is a shocking comparison to Eric’s. That boy was also abused by his parents and neglected by his community. People in your Wisconsin community keep stating they don’t understand how something like this can happen. Let’s not play stupid here. That community knows full well how it happened and it’s called ignorance. No one cared enough to do anything even though this abused, neglected boy was right in eyes sight. I am sorry the principal lost his life but I beg to differ on the hero issue. There are no hero’s in this tragic case at all because if there were, we would not be here today talking about this 15 year old child.

    Please visit http://www.justiceforjuveniles.org. Eric will be tried as an adult as I am sure you all know. That means he will be prosecuted and punished as one. That will mean no second chances. No counseling. No rehabilitation. He will be warehoused for the rest of his life abused, neglected, assaulted, raped and isolated. Hasn’t he had a life time of that already?

    It is not to late for the community to stand up for this child. Help us help him. Visit and read about Cody Posey. Visit Eric’s thread and see how many people across the country are concerned for this poor boy. We can’t keep turning our backs on our children. We can’t keep throwing them away like yesterdays garbage. What society does to it’s children, it’s children will do to society.
