Patrick McLaw, 23, an 8th grade language arts teacher at Maryland’s Mace’s Lane Middle School, has been placed on leave after authoring “The Insurrectionist,” a fictional book that chronicles the largest school massacre” in history, WBOC-TV reports.
McLaw penned the book and its sequel, “Lilith’s Heir,” under the pen name “Dr. K.S. Voltaer.”
The “futuristic” school shooting described in “The Insurrectionist” takes place in 2902, according to Amazon:
“On 18 March 2902, a massacre transpired on the campus of Ocean Park High School, claiming the lives of nine hundred forty-seven individuals–the largest school massacre in the nation’s history. And the entire country now begins to ask two daunting questions: How? and Why? After the federal government becomes involved, and after examining the bouquet of black roses that lies in front of the school’s sign, it becomes evident that the hysteria is far from over.”
The Dorchester County superintendent of schools released the following statement:
“While on administrative leave, he is not allowed to come onto school property or participate in school events,” the statement continues. “Mr. McLaw’s teaching duties have been assigned to qualified personnel to insure the smooth transition of students into the fall semester,” the statement reads.
In addition to forcing McLaw to undergo an emergency medical evaluation, police swept Mace’s Lane Middle School for bombs and other weapons and found nothing.
“The information we received caused us to return to Dorchester County and immediately take the following steps,” Phillips said. “A K-9 sweep was conducted at the Mace’s Lane School looking for explosive devices and other weapons. A secondary search was performed by police and school officials looking for suspicious packages or other items. Both of these searches were negative.”
“The residence of the teacher in Wicomico County was searched by personnel,” Phillips said, with no weapons found, reports WBOC.”A further check of Maryland State Police databases also proved to be negative as to any weapons registered to him. McLaw was suspended by the Dorchester County Board of Education pending an investigation and is no longer in the area. He is currently at a location known to law enforcement and does not currently have the ability to travel anywhere.”
McLaw is not allowed to step foot on any Dorchester County or Wicomico County properties, as well as the Delmar School District, reports WBOC.com. Police presence will remain at the school indefinitely.
“There will be a Cambridge Police Department presence at Mace’s Lane middle school for as long as we deem it necessary,” said Dorchester County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Henry Wagner.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
