Just a Thought
Yet another story of a kid getting in trouble because of something he wrote:
A George Rogers Clark High School junior arrested Tuesday for making terrorist threats told LEX 18 News Thursday that the “writings” that got him arrested are being taken out of context…
“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.”
The thought: If we don’t respect teenagers’ right to free speech, why would we expect them to respect the right to free speech when they’re adults?
