THE mom of accused Oxford High School shooter Ethan Crumbley penned a bizarre open letter to former President Donald Trump that revealed her son "struggles" at school.
Jennifer Crumbley, 43, uploaded the letter to her blog in November 2016, thanking then-President-elect Trump for "allowing my right to bear arms" and pleading with him to "end Common Core."
In her note, Jennifer begins insisting she was "scared s**tless" to vote for Trump in 2016, identifying herself as a supporter of the LGBTQ community and a feminist.
"I value womens rights [sic] and want to be alive when I see the first woman become President," she wrote. "But as an American Woman, with a 10-year-old child I could not have that first woman be Hillary."
She continued: "Mr. Trump, I actually love that you are a bad public speaker because that showed sincerity, and humility. You changed your mind, and you said 'so what'.
"You made the famous 'grab them in the p**sy” comment, did it offend me? No. I say things all the time that people take the wrong way, do I mean them, not always. Do I agree that you should of shown your tax returns? No. I don’t care what you do or maybe don’t pay in taxes."
Crumbley went on to tell the then-president-in-waiting that she hoped he would "really uncover the politicians for what I believe they really are,” and that he might “shut down Big Pharma, make health care affordable for me and my MIDDLE CLASS family again.”
'NOT A RACIST'
Jennifer also revealed that she was a supporter of Trump's border wall proposal, but countered that she was "not racist" because her grandfather "came straight off the boat in Italy."
"If you want to be here, work here, live here damnit [sic], f**king earn it and prove it," she added.
"As a female and a Realtor, thank you for allowing my right to bear arms," the letter continued. "Allowing me to be protected if I show a home to someone with bad intentions. Thank you for respecting that Amendment."
Jennifer also bemoaned Obamacare doubling her family's insurance premiums, writing the Crumbleys were "good f**king Americans that cannot get ahead.
"And what makes me sick, is people that come over here from other countries and get free everything," she added.
In the corresponding passage, Jennifer asked Trump to "stop common core", which is a set of educational standards for teaching and testing English and math between kindergarten and 12th grade.
'MY SON STRUGGLES DAILY'
"You see Mr. Trump, I need you to stop common core. My son struggles daily, and my teachers tell me they hate teaching it but the [sic] HAVE to. Their pay depends on these stupid f**king test scores.
"I have to pay for a Tutor, why? Because I can’t figure out 4th-grade math. I used to be good at math. I can’t afford a Tutor, in fact I sacrifice car insurance to make sure my son gets a good education and hopefully succeeds in life."
She then complained about "illegal immigrant parents" and their kids from a school where her parents taught.
"Most of their parents are locked up. They don’t care about learning and threaten to kill my mom for caring about their grades," she wrote.
"Do you realize Mr. Trump that they get free tutors, free tablets from our Government so they can succeed? Why cant my son get those things, do we as hard-working Americans not deserve that too?"
As a female and a Realtor, thank you for allowing my right to bear arms. Allowing me to be protected if I show a home to someone with bad intentions"
She continued: "Mr. Trump, this is why I voted for you. I see the change that we so desperately need. I see jobs coming back, people having to work for their handouts, money going to who really deserve it.
"I believe YOU are the President who will make these things happen. I have NEVER had this much belief in one person, and you are it."
Jennifer signed the letter from a "hard-working Middle-Class Law Abiding Citizen who is sick of getting f**ked in the a** and would rather be grabbed by the p**sy."
Her husband James Crumbley later shared the post to Facebook, writing: "My wife can be spot on. Sometimes."
More than five years on, Jennifer and James Crumbley appeared virtually in court on Wednesday as their son, 15-year-old Ethan, was charged as an adult with four counts of first-degree murder, terrorism and assault.
The charges came after a shooting rampage inside Oxford High School, in Michigan, on Tuesday that left four students dead and seven others injured, including a teacher.
No information about a possible motive has yet been released by investigators, however, speculation has been rife that Crumbley was bullied in school.
Crumbley and his parents quickly invoked their right to remain silent and retained a lawyer after the shooting.
It has since emerged that the gun authorities believed was used to carry out the massacre was purchased by James just days before his son allegedly opened fire.
Two teachers at Oxford also separately flagged concerning behavior from Crumbley resulting in two meetings – one of which was held with his parents on the morning of the shooting.
The first behavioral report came Monday, when "a teacher in the classroom where he was a student saw and heard something that she felt was disturbing," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told CNN.
"And they had a counseling session about it with school officials, and a phone call was left with the parents."
It's unclear specifically what the teacher heard in that incident.
Then the following day – the morning of the shooting – a "different teacher in a different classroom saw some behavior that they felt was concerning, and they brought the child down to an office, had a meeting with school officials, called in the parents, and ultimately it was determined that he could go back into class."
Soon after returning to class, police say Crumbley opened fire outside of a school bathroom, before moving through a hallway at a "methodical place", indiscriminately shooting students in hallways and classrooms.
Crumbley then surrendered to cops around five minutes after the attack began. He reportedly handed over a semi-automatic handgun.
Authorities say they believe Crumbley intended to claim the lives of more victims, having found two 15-round clips and suggesting he may have stashed a third somewhere.
Oakland County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Tim Willis said law enforcement searched Crumbley's home and found "two separate videos recovered from Ethan’s cellphone."
Speaking to Judge Nancy Carniak during Crumbley's arraignment, Willis said the videos were "made by him the night before the incident, wherein he talked about shooting and killing students the next day at Oxford High School.”
Authorities also found Crumbley's backpack and found a journal "detailing his desire to shoot up the school, to include murdering students," Willis said.
Crumbley’s social media pages – which were removed by Wednesday – have also given possible evidence that the attack may have been planned long before it happened.
In a post on his alleged Instagram account, Crumbley had a “countdown to return of devil" and wrote, "now I become death — destroyer of worlds — see you tomorrow Oxford.”
The countdown ended on the day of the shooting.
My son struggles daily … I sacrifice car insurance to make sure my son gets a good education and hopefully succeeds in life"
The account also featured images of horror movie villains such as Michael Myers from Halloween and Jigsaw from Saw, and included the alias Black Death.
He was also relatively active on YouTube as a young boy, posting various videos of himself playing Call of Duty and playing basketball with friends.
Crumbley is also said to have flaunted his father's newly purchased 9mm Sig Sauer SP handgun in a since-deleted post on Instagram, days prior to the shooting.
“Just got my new beauty today. … Ask any questions I will answer," the caption of the post read.
Prosecutors said Wednesday they are “confident” they can show Crumbley's sickening rampage was premeditated.
Oakland County prosecutor, Karen D. McDonald, alleged that there is a “mountain of digital evidence” against the teen and believes Crumbley had planned the attack well before it happened.
“I am absolutely sure after reviewing the evidence that it isn’t even a close call: It was absolutely premeditated,” McDonald said.
Prosecutors were also considering charges against Crumbley’s parents as they continue to investigate how the 15-year-old got his hands on the gun.
Tenth grader Nathan Swanson, who went to middle school with Crumbley, told The Daily Beast that Crumbley was "really quiet, he would never talk to people."
“He wore all black, I believe he was really into hunting,” Swanson said.
Crumbley was charged Wednesday as an adult with one count of terrorism, four counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of assault with intent to murder, and 12 counts of possession of a firearm.
The teen spoke in court yesterday only to say he understood the charges during his arraignment, where the judge ordered he be held without bail. He pleaded not guilty.
He will be transferred from a juvenile detention center to Oakland County's adult jail, where he'll be sequestered and put under suicide watch.
The students killed at the Oxford high school shooting have been identified as Tate Myre, 16, Hana St. Juliana, 14, and Madisyn Baldwin, 17.
Justin Shilling, 15, who was in critical condition after the shooting, passed away from his injuries on Wednesday.
