Student arrested for terroristic threat...
What was that threat?
That's right, he somehow threatened the school by writing a story where a high school was overrun by zombies.
Jeez, as if I needed any more reasons to feel sorry for people who lived in Kentucky.... Are the authorities out there really that fucking retarded? No, I take that back, that's not even retarded. That's downright braindead and stupid. I mean we're talking persistent vegatative state here. I find it offensive that anyone in any position of power could be that stupid (and in this case you have cops, the DA, and a judge involved so far). If you think that writing about zombies somehow constitutes a real threat to anyone then you'd be duty bound to go after published authors and Japanese video game companies and major Hollywood studios (remember the scene in Resident Evil 2 where they were in a middle school?).
I mean, jeez. That whole thing just makes me want to sit down and right something where the entire state of kentucky is eaten up by zombies because they had outlawed all literature/films on them and no one knew what to do when they came along. Then again, judging by this article, maybe the zombies already took over. Clearly some people there don't seem to have higher cognitive functions.
Let's hear it for the first ammendment. It was nice while it lasted.
