Por não gostar de segundas-feiras, há 42 anos, uma jovem fez um ataque a uma escola com 2 mortos e 9 feridos

The Grover Cleveland Elementary School shooting took place on January 29, 1979, at a public elementary school in San Diego, California, United States. The principal and a custodian were killed; eight children and police officer Robert Robb 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. Charged 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 September 2020, 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 had done it. She reportedly answered: "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day," which inspired Bob Geldof and Johnnie Fingers to write the Boomtown Rats song "I Don't Like Mondays".
