Sounds like another school going overboard when it comes to disciplining a student. I really hate these stupid “gotta keep the kids safe at all costs” laws which are totally vague, and usually end up causing grief for people that have kids that say stupid things at the wrong time.
Anyhow, this guy is now charged with a felony for writing about blowing up his school. Was he stupid, you bet. A High School senior should know better (especially one that is supposedly gifted at writing). Does he deserve punishment from school? Probably since he did something that stupid. Will it prevent the real nut cases from going into the school with guns? Hell no.
