WTF?

An 18 year old high school kid has been arrested for writing a zombie story set at a school.  If we had this kind of mentality over here in the 80s I'd probably still be inside for some of the stuff I wrote at that age.

"Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it's a felony in the state of Kentucky,"

So that's about 90% of all stories written for children?

I think there's a lot of states that would like to make possession of JKs little witterings a felony. As for my writing the one that would have got me done was the one never handed in. That involved among other things a well worked out part on the structural integrity of the ceiling of the art room which was directly below the staff room. I thinik it never got finished because I was having trouble getting the recipie for the explosives right even with the help of a 30s Britannica.

J K Rowling had definitely better steer clear of that state.

As had anyone involved in any way with Buffy.

This appears to be a Feb 2005 incident, but I can't find any references to an outcome.

If you google the name, "high school" and winchester (KY), you'll get a number of other reports.
