    Five years from now there might be, if this kid doesn't get some help.

    Man, it's a good thing that they didn't go crazy about this stuff when I was a kid.

    Every margin of every notebook in elementary school was a stick figure apocalypse.

    The hell? how stupid can you get when you misspell 'teachers'? /joke

    but it is a over-reaction to put him in cuffs. he has the same problem as me when it comes to anger (draw it out. don't lash it out). tis sad D:

    that's bullshit. What was his crime?

    exactly. When I was that age lots of the kids were drawing this kind of stuff. Only better drawn, and more gruesome. But we were smart enough to keep it among ourselves.

    Ten dollars says the one who called police was a teacher fed up with the boy's ADD.

    The kid should have said it was a lollipop and said he forgot to put 'not eat' between must and die.

    A bit much, but with all those school shootings in recent years I can understand some kind of temporary detainment/therapy for kids in these types of scenarios.
    Of course, "Tim" already had therapy going. And they're punishing him for relieving stress in a non-disruptive manner.

    An overreaction for sure, but remember it's the same state that gave us Columbine tragedy so maybe preventative measures had to be taken to show the kid that they mean business. I hope that lessons will be learned and that kid will not grow up to be a burden to the society.

    I'm not completely against the arrest, as the kid clearly shows either intent or the want to do physical harm to people, in this case "tecaers."

    People want to talk about taking things too far with the arrest, how about wanting to kill teachers for not liking his Music class?



    EDIT: Leaving my original post up, even though I'm saying this now. Thinking about for a couple of minutes, arresting the kid actually is a bit much. Some disciplinary action, sure. A little talk with the teacher and principle along with the kid's parents and the therapist in this case. Maybe a suspension. Something that can address the issue and find out what the kid's problem actually is (aside from the drugs he's on for his "ADD").

    Arresting the kid doesn't address anything, or bring any underlying issue to light. Dumb move.

    Well OBVIOUSLY these drawings were blueprints he was making to carry out a future attack on his school.

    I mean, pfft, it's plain as day. /scarcasm

    I remember drawing stick figures of me blowing up my school. I also drew me turning into Godzilla and stomping on my teachers.
    Oddly enough, neither of those things happened. And at the age of 37 I still haven't murdered anyone.
    Of course my teachers didn't have me fucking arrested for doodling stuff at the age of eleven.

    considering the fact the kid was doing what the therapist said... it now looks like the therapist now will get even more sessions with the kid.
