Seriously stop the fucking planet, I want off.
I wrote a poem once in High School for submission to the schools poetry book, it was deemed too dark and violent for a high school publication. My punishment? It wasn’t included — that was it, I do think I got an A on the project though. It was a good thing that my poem was rejected anyways as it wasn’t entirely original, I took a Metallica song and added extra verses to it.
I couldn’t imagine what sort of punishment I would get in today’s over-sensitized liberal dominated world of ridiculous zero-tolerance policies. The school year is barely even a few days old and already a 16-year-old student at Summerville High School in South Carolina has been not just suspended but arrested as well. All because of a gun.
Not just any gun, this violent juvenile delinquent was sent to jail for the most dangerous gun of all, a fictional one.
That’s right, the poor kid didn’t actually bring a gun to school, he didn’t even threaten to bring the gun to school or make any threats at all. In a class project where the kid wrote an obviously fictionalized version of what he did during the summer, the suspended and arrested student wrote that he had purchased a “gun” to kill his neighbors pet “dinosaur.”
Via WWBT NBC12:
Alex Stone said he and his classmates were told in class to write a few sentences about themselves, and a “status” as if it was a Facebook page.
Stone said in his “status” he wrote a fictional story that involved the words “gun” and “take care of business.”
“I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business,” Stone said.
Stone says his statements were taken completely out of context.
“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have “gun” in it. But a pet dinosaur?” said Alex’s mother Karen Gray.”I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”
Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words “gun” and “take care of business,” and police were then notified on Tuesday. Read More…
Police then arrested the poor kid and charged him with “disorderly conduct.”
