And Here Comes The Thought Police
Because rational thinking after national tragedies are soooo last century:
BOULDER (AP) - A University of Colorado junior has been arrested, and suspended from school, after allegedly making comments that sounded sympathetic to the Virginia Tech gunman.
Police arrested CU-Boulder student Max Karson on suspicion of interfering with staff, faculty or students of an educational institution.
CU police Commander Brad Wiesley says Karson made comments about understanding how someone could kill 32 people - during a class Tuesday.
Students reported the comments at about 1 p.m. Wiesley says people in the class interpreted Karson's statements as threats.
Actually, it appears that this kid is not exactly your model student But does this constitute making a specific threat? No. Did he have plans to do harm against anyone? No. Does what he did constitute yelling "fire" in a crowded theater? No. So what kind of police state are we living in?
