    Summerville Police arrest student for writing he shot dead dinosaur

    YOU don’t need to be a Rhodes Scholar to know that dinosaurs became extinct about 66 million years ago.

    Yet a high school student’s statement that he shot dead his neighbour’s pet dinosaur saw police officers called to the school.

    Alex Stone, a 16-year-old student at Summerville High School in the town of Summerville in South Carolina, said that his class was asked to write a few sentences about themselves and to list a “status” as if they were filling in their Facebook page, WCSC-TV reported.

    The teen wrote “I killed my neighbour’s pet dinosaur.” In the status section, he said he wrote: “I bought the gun to take care of the business.”



    That prompted the school to call in Summerville Police Department. Stone was arrested and later charged with disorderly conduct after he argued with officers, who searched fruitlessly for a gun in his school bag and locker. He has also been suspended from school.

    He was also suspended from school.

    Stone’s mother, Karen Gray, is angry that she was not called before the police.

    “I could understand if they made him rewrite it because he did have ‘gun’ in it,” she said.

    “(But) I mean first of all we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”

    Stone said he meant no harm and is surprised his words could be construed that way.

    “I regret it because they put it on my record, but I don’t see the harm in it,” he said. “I think there might have been a better way of putting it, but I think me writing like that, it shouldn’t matter unless I put it out towards a person.”

    To the best of my knowledge this is not a joke story.
    No actual dinosaurs were harmed.
    He does have that whole Bieber hair thing going though, so will probably grow up to shoot someone....

    Hope they tasered him, waterboarded the little fvcker and finally shot him in the face with a few beanbag rounds.

    Cheeky little fvcker - making jokes about killing poor little dinosaurs.

    I bet there's a hole in the ozone layer above his hairdo.

    South Carolina? I'd have thought he'd have got an A+- especially if he said the dinosaour was dark, and looking at him in a threatening manner.

    Difficult to believe a 16 year old American kid doesn't actually own at least one gun.

    Probably got arrested for not having one.

    Well, at least his line of reasoning was in keeping with the school system's acceptance of "creationism" that allows for humans and dinosaurs existing at the same time.

    I often wonder if US cops get a cash bonus dependent upon the amount of stupid arrests they make. The kid is lucky to be alive - if he was black he would have been tasered, then shot, then questioned, then shot a few more times just to make sure.

    I am surprised he actually used the word shot. I am sure when I was 16 I it wouldn't have entered my head to write that I had shot anything.

    More a reflection on society than an individual. He obviously needs counselling .
    Why waste a round on something that has been dead for millions of years.

    His English teachers needs some extra something as why would they be interested in "status" i think I would have written "Lucky not to have been born black"
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all

    Anyway - the most disturbing thing is how the hell can this be classed Education in a western country? Write a fricking Facebook status? Should have written

    "My teachers are shit - Come to school to learn, and instead get treated like a moron. Gonna shoot the cnuts"

    Another case of anti-gun nuts going off the deep end.
    Still the hairdo is ridiculous, they should shave his head and put him in boot-camp and show him how to use a real firearm.

    Americans truly are morons. One simply couldn't make this up and if, say, the Coen Bros or Jared Hess suggested a scenario along those lines to a producer they probably wouldn't get passed the first pitch.

    South Carolina is hick state isn't it, where everyone is grossly fat and more than a little stupid. Mind you, that probably encompasses most of the States.

    Gosh, it must be quite tough being an intelligent septic.

    This post scores a -1.0 on 'thegent' rant scale. (Come on thegent, we know you can do better.)

    Breakdown of score:

    Slamming another nationality: +4 (morons, hicks, fat, stupid)

    Benevolent reference to another nationality: -1 (must be quite tough being an intelligent septic)

    Referencing others in a positive way: -3 (Coen Bros & Jared Hess)

    Improper use of English: -1 (passed instead of past)

    Significant new vocabulary to educate the masses: 0 (nothing new this post)


    Note: this scale is in development and is subject to further modifications. Suggestions from 'thegent' followers may result in changes.

    Did the police not check any records to check if a dinosaur had been reported shot.
    Previous.
    Before rushing in to investigate a case of fossil evidence.

    Wasn't there loads of people complaining about a pic of Steven Speilberg leaning against a dead dinosaur running around the Internet recently.

    All "up in arms" about the cruelty that he had killed it!!!

    a 3rd grader at school this week told me that she went swimming in the sea and was attacked by a shark, but it only bit her shoe.

    I shall alert the Thai authorities about shark attacks immediately.

    I may be mistaken. but. I believe dinosaurs are an endangered species in South Carolina.

    So. perhaps the arrest was justified.
