Autistic Boy Charged With Making Terrorist Threats Over Stick-Figure Sketch

Share

Oh, it’s a sad state of affairs when the wee lads can’t even draw guns and swords in their school books anymore. One might hope this was some social engineer’s idea of a practical joke. But no. It’s a terror charge levied against some little autistic kid for a sketch. (Meanwhile, they appear to be studying ‘The Outsiders’.) Terror – it’s everywhere, man. Well, we’ve known all along that the Patriot Act and its various analogues throughout the West are really for use in controlling domestic populations – not people from the Middle East, that was just the first phase of your conditioning. Stay gold, Ponyboy.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. – A fourteen-year-old autistic boy is facing terrorist charges after a sketch he made in school.

The sketch shows two stick-figures. One of them is labeled ‘Me’ and is shown shooting a gun at another with a teacher’s name above it.

Karen Finn says that her son, 8th grader Shane Finn, doesn’t understand why he is in trouble. She says the boy is autistic and has the mental capacity of a 3rd grader.

Officials at Ridgeview Charter School say the student will face a tribunal and is being charged with making terrorist threats.

Finn says she plans to fight the charges.
