Teacher calls police because her student wrote a story which included him shooting a dinosaur
Dinosaurs no longer walk the earth, at least in real life. Nevertheless, Reason.com said on Wednesday, 16-year-old Alex Stone, a student at Summerville High School in Summerville, South Carolina, was arrested and suspended for writing a story in which he killed a dinosaur with a gun.
According to Reason, Stone was given an assignment to write a story about himself that included a Facebook-like “status.” He chose to embellish the story with fictional details, Robby Soave said. But the teacher apparently couldn’t bear to see the word “gun.”
“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, according to NBC-12. But Stone said his messages were taken out of context.
“I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have ‘gun’ in it. But a pet dinosaur?” asked Karen Gray, Alex’s mother. “I mean first of all, we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”
The teacher contacted police after seeing “gun” and “take care of business.” Authorities searched Stone’s school bag and locker and did not find a gun. Nor did they find the remains of the fictitious dinosaur he claimed to have killed in his fictional “status.”
Which has killed more, guns in school or HIV?
If this kid wrote an essay about going to a bar to have anal sex he’d be on the short list for valeDICKtorian.
How about for my own safety we just do away with the 1st amendment??

UPDATE – link fixed. (Not the Jezebel one, the second one)
The go-to feminist site, Jezebel, has no problem citing stupid statistics that would be deemed offensive if the opposite findings were reported.
In the report it says that straight men orgasm 85% of the time. 15% of straight men are not orgasming??
They must be having sex with this.
I wonder if our readers have done any studies about straight women versus lesbian women…
Did you know that the Declaration of Independence was really a breakup letter due to a “failing relationship.” See, the couple thought they would be “together forever but then things change.” One party thought the other was taking their relationship for granted. So it was time to break up. Alone time was needed .
This was how the Declaration of Independence is presented in a Common Core lesson as reported by Nan Austin of the Modesto Bee in California. The funniest thing about her article is that Ms Austin obviously thought she was presenting Common Core in a good light instead of inadvertently revealing its absurdity including a video of this “relationship” breakup lesson:

A Brazilian inmate on supervised release put his electronic monitoring bracelet on an unsuspecting rooster, which he locked in a chicken coop, and then sneaked off to sell drugs.
The ruse was discovered during a routine check in Porto Alegre of a drug sales spot on Wednesday night, when police detained Isaac Selau, 29, on suspicion of selling drugs and illegal possession of a firearm.
When they ran his name, they discovered he was under house arrest and required to remain at home in the evenings. They then went to his home, where they came across the bizarre sight of a rooster with a monitoring device around its neck.
A man from Montana found himself in jail when he called police to complain that he didn’t get sex after paying for a private dance at a strip club.
Butte-Silver Bow law enforcement said William McDaniel, 53, called police at around 10:30pm on Saturday to report that he paid a dancer at Sage Brush Sam’s in Rocker $350 for a private dance and did not get sex.
Since it’s illegal to offer money for sexual favours, police arrested McDaniel on a misdemeanor charge of soliciting prostitution.
Hello Police?! The Girl I Have Tied Up in My Crawlspace Is Making Too Much Noise
Is it just my imagination or is Mr. Pinko not enjoying any “bike fail” or “motorcycle accident” videos we put up?
I think he thinks we are putting them up on purpose. We’re not.
But he seems sensitive. That’s because he was recently taken away in an Amber Lamps after a moped (snicker) accident.
He can tell the story if he can type more than FU with the two fingers that extend outside of his full body cast.
The men act.. umm. San Fransciscan.
For the children-
CNSNews.com) — The ranks of non-teachers – such as administrators, counselors, teacher aides and cafeteria workers – has swelled 130 percent since 1970 and they now make up 50 percent of all public school employees according to a new study, The Hidden Half: School Employees Who Don’t Teach.
Looking at data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the Thomas B. Fordham Institute found that the growth of non-teaching staff has greatly outpaced student growth over the past four decades.
From 1970 to 2010, the number of students grew by 8.6 percent, while the number of non-teaching personnel increased by 130 percent. Non-teachers now consume over a quarter of all education expenditures, the study found.
In addition, America now spends a greater percentage of its education funding on non-teachers than any other country in the world besides Denmark.
“What they need to hear from this black man, in this position — the nation’s leading law enforcement official — is that they need to stay out of trouble with the law.”
“They need to pull up their pants and finish school and take care of their kids,” - WSJ Editor Jason Riley
Wall Street Journal editor Jason Riley hit Attorney General Eric Holder for comments regarding perceived racial opposition to President Barack Obama on Fox News’ “Special Report” Tuesday, noting that during the ongoing Ferguson crisis “looters and rioter don’t need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based.”
Riley attacked Holder’s contention — which has been made repeatedly throughout the Obama administration — that opposition to the president stems largely from white racism. Going further than fellow panelist Dana Perino, he insinuated that the comments may have even contributed to the riots.
“These looters and rioters do not need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based,” he contended. “What they need to hear from this black man, in this position — the nation’s leading law enforcement official — is that they need to stay out of trouble with the law.”
“They need to pull up their pants and finish school and take care of their kids,” Riley continued.

Beginning this school year, campus police in the Compton neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles will be “authorized” to buy and use AR-15s, the guns often misconstrued as “assault rifles” by gun control advocates.
Police officers doing so must “pass an internal selection process,” and can then have the rifles “in their patrol cars while on duty,” according to a report by Southern California Public Radio 89.3 KPCC.
