9th Grader Arrested For Killing Dinosaur With A Gun

Welcome to Today in Wait, What? A 16-year-old freshman at Summerville High School in South Carolina might be the first human being ever arrested for killing a dinosaur. Dinosaur conservationists are going to be pissed at Alex Stone, since the teen viciously killed a dinosaur using gun… in a story he wrote. Next he should write about killing Sasquatch. Ppeople have been trying to bag him for years.

Alex’s mother says it’s all a big misunderstanding and she wishes that the school called her first so they could hear Alex’s side of the story before things escalated so quickly. Alex’s class was instructed to write a story about themselves in the form of a Facebook update. So Alex says he followed the assignment, writing;

"I killed my neighbor's pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business," Stone said.

Apparently the words “gun” and “taking care of business” were enough to set off alarm bells at the school causing his teacher to report him to school officials who in turn called the police. Not sure if this was an animal abuse complaint, but the fuzz quickly showed up at the school to search the kid’s locker and book bag for a weapon; which they did not find, since as you read earlier, the whole thing took place in a fictional story. Great, now Obama is trying to take our fictional guns.

Also, according to scientists, dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago.



Alex should be allowed to defend himself and his family from dinosaurs.

At least this is the first dinosaur related arrest that the media is talking about; in South Carolina they may have been killing dinosaurs when people lived with them six thousand years ago, am I right?

After being arrested for his Jurassic crimes, Alex was suspended from school for one week. He will have time to sit at home and plot more triceratops terror. And e will be in good company, as noted film director Stephen Spielberg also recently found himself in hot water when photos of him posing with dinosaur hunting trophies went viral, tarnishing his reputation.

Alex Stone Was Influenced by This Hollywood Maniac

Do you think it was right for school officials and police to protect the public from a possible homicidal dinosaur murderer, or is this just another example of an overreaction? I know one group of dinosaurs who are not on Alex’s side.

Did you even watch the video you posted? He wasn't arrested for what he wrote, that is just what got it all started. After police got there and started questioning him he became disruptive and was arrested for disrupting school activity.

Still an over reaction by the school. You said it was a creative writing assignment, then he wrote something creative. SMH at the gun grabbers.

People these days are being punished for goofy things like this and are getting away with vile and disgusting things. Something is broken!

I've said in the past that Break needs improvement, in a matter of words. But I would like to say this was a good "article". I put article in quotes because I know it's meant to be fun. But seriously, I got all the info, and even a link to the original story. Nice!

He should have been arrested for that stupid ass hairstyle.

This sort of thing never happened until liberals took over the school system. Just sayin...

Not surprising, look where this happened, South Carolina. South and North Carolina are both a bunch of idiot states that fear inaniment objects, do stupid things like this, and refuse to look at real causes to real problems. 

They both stick their heads in the sand and just pretend bad things don't happen because of bad people, but instead because of physical objects.

Don't miss the part about how public schools in the US are now banning the word "gun"

If pro is the opposite of con, then what is the opposite of congress?

freedom of speech doesnt mean you can say whatever you want, wherever you want. Freedom of speech protects you from government prosecution

Mid-sixties, I assume you're a child from a hippy mother, that explains why you ain't so smart.
