From ANN –
Two 12-year-old sixth-grade boys were arrested in Gadsden, Alabama on Thursday for a notebook that allegedly listed their school staff and fellow students in a manner similar to the Death Note anime series…Etowah County Superintendent of Education Mike Bailey issued a news release that said that the students were suspended from the county’s schools, pending a juvenile court hearing. The students, their parents, and school officials had met with Handy and a junior probation officer…
Ray’s take: Oh my God, man, I don’t care how conservative you are, this is just plain ridiculous. So people gets SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO paranoid these days that anyone writes something in his or her own notebook gets arrested (NO, don’t tell me the location of discovery, NO, don’t tell me it’s school locker – although yeah, that means these kids were stupid – but argue on these points and I’ll tell you to get the hell off of this site ASAP). Damn, so we get so scared of kids writing names in a book…Well, on the other hand I can’t blame them, after all, this is where Alabama man action figure gets famous, wife beaters roams freely and people shoots each other every other second, right????? One can’t never be too careful. I guess I’ll write it off as another Death Note sighting. I like the South I just don’t want it to be on the rise again! Otherwise we’d be all eating fried foods and chitlins (pig’s intestines)!
Y’all know I’m just kidding right?
