High school student jokes about bringing a M-80 firecracker to school. Another student overhears and thinks an M-80 is a gun so they call the police. Police arrest the jokester because if he had brought the firecracker to school it would have been against the law.
Where does the madness end. The thought police are now firmly in charge.

Is this the world we live in now? If you start arresting people for things they joke about doing we are going to need a lot bigger prisons.

The actions of the teachers and school administrators leaves a lot to be desired and one is called common sense......the same for the local PD.....
We are creating, nurturing, encouraging & raising a generation of skittish, tattle-tale candy-asses. As a result, we will become a nation of EXACTLY the...same thing.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.

I hope a multi-million dollar law suit results from this. If enough schools and their admin. and the PD involved with this crap are forced to pay out huge settlements---this may cease. I hope the lawyers smell the blood in the water.

With all these stories, I can't imagine what's going to go down next year when my son steps up to K.. as if going to the school district his father and mother was in wasn't bad enough. Sure hope nobody there remembers her or I!

The Progressive Left is over-reaching on every front to draw a new baseline. It's called Nudging. And the Media is entrenched in the agenda to make sure that we are all unarmed Sheep.
Holy crap! If they start arresting us for jokes.. I'm gonna be on the first short bus to prison
