Kid gets arrested for writing zombie fiction.
William Poole, an 18-year-old high school student from Kentucky has been arrested and is facing felony charges for writing a short story about zombies over-running a high school.
Apparently the kid’s grandparents found his story and reported him to the authorities. I guess they assumed that he was planning a Columbine-like incident but instead of guns, he was somehow going to resurrect the dead to take out his classmates.
Remember what I said about this being retarded?
“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.
