I was checking out the site, Green is the New Red and I came across a post that refers to a news article found on the Lexington, Ky news channel 18 site. The article was about a student from George Rogers Clark High School who was arrested and labeled as a ‘terrorist’ because he wrote a story about zombies. – Yes, ZOMBIES!!
Here is a blurb from the article;
“My story is based on fiction,” said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. “It’s a fake story. I made it up. I’ve been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies.”
Even so, police say the nature of the story makes it a felony. “Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it’s a felony in the state of Kentucky,” said Winchester Police detective Steven Caudill.
WTF? What the hell is wrong with people, the police, Kentucky, this country? They will take your freedoms away for writing a story about zombies but its ok for vice presidential candidates, such as Sarah Palin to say she doesn’t know if people who have bombed abortion clinics and KILLED people can be called a terrorist. (Also include, Pennsylvania’s Homeland Security Director James Powers said; “Tim McVey is not a terrorist, just very angry with the U.S. government,” Powers said. “Whether a person is a terrorist or a criminal is irrelevant to me.”)
Personally, I don’t care where you fall on the issue of abortion but what I do care about is our government doing insane things to people, like this kid in Lexington or what is happening to peace activists all over this country , in the name of fighting terrorism – when our government officials support by not speaking out against real domestic violence, and shall I say terrorists.
I have shown several terrorist, I mean, Zombie films on this site so I would like to show a trailer to a documentary about something that is going on right now in our country right now that is taking the lives of people and hurting families.
