Joe Biden Gun Control Task Force: Committee Member's Son Served Time For Plotting Columbine-Style Attack

Robert Jonathan

The son of a member of VP Joe Biden's Gun Control Task Force served time for conspiracy to commit murder in connection with a planned school attack.

The Task Force member is Thomas Nee, a Boston cop and president of the National Association of Police Organizations. According to Town Hall columnist Katie Pavlich, Nee's son Joseph was convicted in 2008 for planning a Columbine-style attack on Marshfield, Massachusetts, High School. He was found not guilty of promotion of anarchy and threatening to use deadly weapons at a school. The younger Nee served about nine months in jail on the conspiracy charge.

The Boston Globe provided background information at the time of the conviction:

"Authorities learned about the plan in September of that year [2004], when Nee went to police with two classmates and told officers that Kerns was planning a massacre at the school. Nee told police the plan involved taking ammunition and explosive devices into the school, securing the school's exit doors with bicycle locks, and shooting students and staff.

"Police arrested Kerns the following day.

"Police didn't arrest Nee until a month later, after friends of Kerns implicated Nee as the mastermind of the plot."

"Police didn't arrest Nee until a month later, after friends of Kerns implicated Nee as the mastermind of the plot."

"The defendant's motive for going to police was to save himself. The defendant did not have intimate knowledge [of the plan] because he had overheard Mr. Kerns; the plan was as much his as it was Kerns's."

As the time of the original arrest, investigators were trying to determine if a.40-caliber Boston police service pistol might have been potentially used in the planned attack, the Boston Globe reported.
