“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have “gun” in it. But a pet dinosaur?” said Alex’s mother Karen Gray.”I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”
Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words “gun” and “take care of business,” and police were then notified on Tuesday.
Summerville police officials say Stone’s bookbag and locker were searched on Tuesday, and a gun was not found.
According to Gray, Stone was suspended for the rest of the week. Gray says she is furious that the school did not contact her before her son was arrested.
She says her son followed directions and completed an assignment.
“If the school would have called me and told me about the paper and asked me to come down and discussed everything and, at least, get his point-of-view on the way he meant it. I never heard from the school, never. They never called me,” said Gray.
Stone and his mother say they understand the sensitive nature of what he wrote, but they say it was a rash reaction to an innocent situation.
“I regret it because they put it on my record, but I don’t see the harm in it,” Stone said.”I think there might have been a better way of putting it, but I think me writing like that, it shouldn’t matter unless I put it out towards a person.”
According to police, when Stone was asked by school officials about the comment written on the assignment, he said it was a joke.
Summerville police officials say Stone was disruptive and was told that he was being detained for disturbing schools.
Stone was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. District officials say the student has been suspended.
Okay, could some copsuckers out there explain to me how this is an example of great police work?
First, the insane assholes at his school call the cops on him for something absolutely harmless. (And one wonders what the hell sort of standards they are training teachers to these days.) Then the cops come and use one of their phony-baloney excuses for an arrest (making a disturbance – almost as common as resisting arrest).
But hey. Cops right, kid a crook. Because cops.
If you think that’s what the police should be, fuck you.
