School Kid Suspended & Arrested For Imagining Shooting A Dinosaur

Furious parents not informed until police had taken son into custody
by Steve Watson




In another case of school officials adhering to ridiculous zero tolerance policies, a student from South Carolina was suspended and arrested by police recently after writing an imaginative story about using a gun to shoot a dinosaur.

The offender, 16-year-old Alex Stone of Summerville High School in a suburb of Charleston was in the course of completing an assignment where students were asked to write something brief about themselves, much like Facebook status updates.

Stone told reporters that he found himself in hot water with teachers for being over imaginative and mentioning the word ‘gun’.

"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." the student said.

A 65 million year gap between the story and reality didn’t seem to matter to teachers who immediately suspended Stone for a week, searched his bookbag and locker – finding nothing – and then inexplicably called the police.

When the cops paid a visit to the student, he reportedly became “irate”, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, all before the boy’s parents were informed anything was going on.

“If the school would have called me and told me about the paper and asked me to come down and discussed everything and, at least, get his point-of-view on the way he meant it. I never heard from the school, never. They never called me,” said the boy’s mother Karen Gray.

Stone’s parents were barely able to comprehend the actions of the school.

“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have “gun” in it. But a pet dinosaur?” Gray added. “I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”

The student is standing his ground on the matter. “I regret it because they put it on my record, but I don’t see the harm in it,” Stone said.”I think there might have been a better way of putting it, but I think me writing like that, it shouldn’t matter unless I put it out towards a person.”

As Infowars has documented, the frequency of ludicrous zero tolerance related actions taken by schools has prompted lawmakers across the country to take action. In Florida, legislation was recently passed to ensure students are no longer punished for such innocuous infractions. Several other states are close to passing similar laws.

82145 In a country which ONLY uses the gun to solve law enforcement & many other social issues , & LEOs driving around in MRAPs , SWAT teams delivering parking ticket summonses, it's hardly surprising the kids imagination is being tainted with these images. It's also not surprising that the schools prefer to "shoot the messenger" (pun intended) rather than deal with the underlying issue of state sanctioned violence perpetrated against it's own citizens. Then again , the school system is , as an arm of the state , willfully is reinforcing the above paradigm.
