Wired News: Teen's Felony Case Thrown Out. In short: the judge ruled that you have to show more evidence of intent than a piece of crappy fiction (PDF). If they'd found the kid in possession of guns, ammo and C4 explosive; then this would have been a different story. All they found was a kid venting his frustration by writing a story - but in America it seems that's not ok. I wonder if jocks ever write stories about beating kids up?

Come to think of it, I recall being read a story at school when I was a kid... it was a humourous piece about a teacher going nuts and killing the class for misbehaving. It was funny, everyone laughed. Nobody thought it was serious. Oh how times have changed.
