Remember drawing pictures of the teacher in your notebook when you were little?

Remember how she was always getting blown up, shot, stabbed, run over, nuked or had a flaming anvil dropping on her? Kinda like this?


An 11-year-old Arvada boy was arrested and hauled away in handcuffs for drawing stick figures in school, something his therapist told him to do.

His parents say they understand what he did was inappropriate, but are outraged by the way Arvada Police handled the case. The parents do not want their real names used.

They say "Tim" is being treated for Attention Deficit Disorder and his therapist told him to draw pictures when he got upset, rather than disrupt the class. So that's what he did.

Last October, he drew stick figures of himself with a gun, pointed at four other stick figures with the words "teacher must die."

He felt calmer and was throwing the picture away when the teacher saw it and sent him to the principal's office.

This must have been on one of the days the teacher was at work and not rioting in Wisconsin.

Well I hope young Tim has learned an important lesson. Where government employees are concerned you keep your head down, your mouth shut, and don't leave any evidence of impious thoughts lying around. That's what school is for, after all. Teaching people how to behave in public institutions.
