They say a sure sign you are going insane is when you are convinced everyone else in the world is insane… I must be losing my mind…..
OCALA, Fla. — Two boys, ages 9 and 10, were charged with felonies and taken away from school in handcuffs, accused of making violent drawings of stick figures.
The boys were arrested Monday on charges of making a written threat to kill or harm another person, a second-degree felony.
The special education students used pencil and red crayon to draw primitive stick figure scenes on scrap paper that showed a 10-year-old classmate being stabbed and hung, police said.
“The officer found they were drawing these pictures for the sole purpose of intimidating and scaring the victim,” said Ocala Police Sgt. Russ Kern.
The boy depicted in the drawings told his teacher, who took the sketches and contacted the school dean, Marty Clifford. Clifford called police, who arrested the boys after consulting with the State Attorney’s Office.
So these 2 kids are going to have to spend the rest of their lives sitting on the Group W bench because they drew stick figures?
I remember as a kid getting into fights with my sister and her saying “I hope you die.” I guess that’s a felony today. We feed our kids video games where the object is to walk around killing everyone in front of you then when they draw a violent picture we charge them as felons!?!?
I know this is bold and irrational plan but did anyone consider having their parents tell them to knock it off?
Sometimes I think I’m the only sane one left.
