I don't know if any of you happened to notice this article on Slashdot but I think it would be hilarious if it were a joke and didn't actually happen to some poor kid.  I'm just curious as to what rule or law that he broke.  Anyway, here's the article.

"A student at the Houston-area Clements High School was arrested, sent to an "Alternative Education Center" and banned from graduation after school officials found he created a video game map of his school. School district police arrested the teen and searched his home where they confiscated a hammer as a 'potential weapon'. ' "They decided he was a terroristic threat," said one source close to the district's investigation.' With an upcoming May 12 school board election, this issue has quickly become political, with school board members involved in the appeal accusing each other of pandering to the Chinese community in an attempt to gain votes."


I saw that and it's absolutely ridiculous. Somehow this seems a lot like those "bombs" in Boston earlier this year lol.
