THE GREAT PUBLIC SCHOOL EXPERIMENT: High School Kid Arrested For Writing About Shooting A DINOSAUR
For the introductory assignment, Stone’s teacher asked him and his classmates to write something about themselves and their current status — like something you might write on Facebook.
Stone decided to write a fictional story wherein he slew a dinosaur. He used the word “gun.” He used the words “take care of business” as well.
“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 blond, baby-faced teenager told WCSC.
The teacher apparently failed to understand that he was writing a fictional account about killing a species of animal that went extinct about 65 million years ago.
Then, the teacher contacted school administrators, who promptly suspended Stone for the remainder of the week.
School officials also notified police on Tuesday. When police investigators asked Stone about his writing, he explained that it was a joke.
The police say Stone became “irate,” according to The Washington Post, so they arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct.
I’d be irate too if my school and teacher were this dumb.
