I don’t like to post stories about the ridiculous things we do to public school students as they tend to severely depress me, but I can’t resist highlighting this story about a Clark County, Kentucky student who was arrested for ‘making terrorist threats’.

His threat?  Well, he wrote a short story about zombies.  Yah.  Zombies.  At a high school.  And they arrested him.

“My story is based on fiction,” said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. “It’s a fake story. I made it up. I’ve been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies.”

According to student (William Poole), his grandparents read the story in his journal and turned him in to the police.  Thank goodness a judge raised his bail from one to five thousand dollars (due to the ‘seriousness of the charge&#8217wink otherwise who knows how many kids will turn to voodoo and necomancy to punish their unbelieving townspeople?
