What I find utterly amazing with many of the comments here - you all overlook the fact that it was the SCHOOL that initially got involved and called the cops. So please, don't just bash the cops for being dumbasses, bash the teacher and school officials as well.

Thank you. Good Day.

You say fear is all in the mind. I say you are right; for it is our imagination that makes things seem scary.
If you want to learn how to not be afraid, ask.

OK,  i can understand a teacher becoming concerned (after recent events)... and i can understand the school principal following up on the teacher's 'concern' ...  but, the warrant to search the house seemed a little over the top?   .. Ok,  justify that if you want to ....  but,  to arrest the kid?    Someone along the chain is working with a diminished mental capacity?

I hope the only punishment he gets is drawn pictures of the school system doing stuff to punish him. Let the punishment fit the crime.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Recent events? Yeah, that would fly if it were a student that shot up the school - maybe if this happened right after Columbine, but that's still pushing it. It was a damn drawing for crying out loud. A drawing... if anything, the kid should have been sent to the guidance counselor, and they work from there. The course of action the school took because of a drawing was way over the line.
