    since when does writing a fictional story, not naming names, about something so farfetched and ridiculous constitute a felony? ****ing retarded...

    Stupidity.

    It's coming thick and fast nowadays.

    The world leaders need to pull out of all foreign countries and instead wage an internal "war on stupidity" to rout out intolerance, fear, hate, ignorance and apathy.

    How on earth can you be charged for telling a story about something that simply does not exist?

    The people who had any hand in this need to have their heads smacked together - oops, hope that's not a felony, getting your heads smacked together is real enough so I might be in even more trouble than that guy.

    I just remember that after Columbine and all those other schools who have been attacked-- we as students had to noticeably alter the language w/ which we spoke and wrote. Example, "I'm so pissed I could kill her," would be a big no-no. Or, "Just shoot me." Likewise, in the linked article it says that proclaiming an attack on a school is considered a felony in that state... and let's face it, every state has some rather 'embarrassing' or outdated laws.

    Ah yes... well, I think it's safe to say that our public education could use a reform. ;)

    I am just so damn proud to be an American. I feel a bit safer now but will feel truly safe only when we are all (except for the benevolent police officers, ministers, and politicians) politely forced to spend our days chained and shackled for our own safety. I hope that the corrupt school system will eventually learn that literacy is a true threat to our well-being and will stop teaching us how to read and write. Original thought is bad for us.

    I just want to be told what to do and how to think. And I hope they use small words or maybe pictures. I know how Islamic civilization used to be the premier source of scientific advancement in the world a thousand years ago (and it pains me that I know such things, 'cause those big words hurt my brain). But then they figured things out and went all fundamental and look how happy they all are now. I can only hope God-Bless-America follows in their footsteps.

    when i was in HS, i once had a classmate write a series of violent poems about killing and torturing me for being gay, which he read aloud in class, and my friend and i got in trouble for walking out in protest. He never got in any trouble which pissed me off (this was post-columbine). Then **** like this happens and it pisses me off even more. Use some freaking intelligence, school administrators... :mad:

    Oh, no, you don't understand. It's OK to talk about killing sinners. And heathens. And anyone not like us in any way. But, other than that, it's bad.


    Idiots. :mad:

    It's frustrating that Orwell prophesied this kind of nonsensical policing back in 1949 and, in 56 years, no one seems to have taken heed :mad:

    *sigh* At least there are still some sane people left:

    That would be like Steve Jobs using Windows :rolleyes:


    I liked this
    I mean, attempted murder requires an action, but attempted threatening? Do you stop mid-sentence? :confused:
