You Got to Be Kidding Me!

Like Clockwork…

Posted in Ungeheuer, Virginia Tech Massacre by Stacy McMahon on April 27, 2007

…you can count on public school administrators to come up with the most stunningly mindless and pedantic response to a violent incident that happened halfway across the country and has nothing to do with their particular school.

Police Thursday released portions of an essay used to charge a Cary-Grove High School student with disorderly conduct, leaving several experts puzzled at an arrest based on such schoolwork.

Asked to write about whatever he wanted in a creative writing class, would-be Marine and honors student Allen Lee, 18, described a violent dream in which he shot people and then “had sex with the dead bodies.”

Allen “Lee”? Yes, of course he’s asian.

After 4/16 everyone knows asian kids who write a violent scene must be future school shooters! I have actually attached electrical generators to harness the energy of my eyes rolling at this, and am currently selling electricity back to the power company. I am not, however, going to write a long-ass post about all that’s wrong with the quoted scenario. If it’s not obvious, then there’s no way I can make you understand. There is certainly no way I could ever make the administrators or police up there in IL understand. That much is clear…

* Side note: You may notice I’ve added a new category for this post. Ungeheuer is a German word that means, roughly, “jaw-dropping, un-effing-believable thing that no real human being should ever have come up with, but someone did anyway.”

    Nice. I just saved this link a few minutes ago…

    (I save my links to http://del.icio.us/ClintJCL , and each day’s links are auto-posted around 6PM – thus i have the ‘raw’ post which I added, add pictures to, then add a comment “updated”, so if you ever see that comment – come back – i probably added some interesting pictures. I wish they would post it as a draft so i could keep it from being “released” until afterwards)

    ^ big fat tangent

    I wondered how long it would take for something like this to happen.

    BTW, I got sent to the psychologist at TJ for my creative writing by wonderful Mrs BS (her initials are quite appropriate).

    And in a slightly related aside (well, to the Tech massacre part), check out: http://news.bostonherald.com/localRegional/view.bg?articleid=195552&srvc=art
