Students Arrested Over 'Violent' Stick Figure Drawings. [Dave at Garfield Ridge]

This just hit Drudge:

OCALA, Fla. -- Two boys, ages 9 and 10, were charged with felonies and taken away from school in handcuffs, accused of making violent drawings of stick figures.

The boys were arrested Monday on charges of making a written threat to kill or harm another person, a second-degree felony.

The special education students used pencil and red crayon to draw primitive stick figure scenes on scrap paper that showed a 10-year-old classmate being stabbed and hung, police said.

Stabbings? Hangings? C'mon, that's nothing. When I was 9 years old, I wrote an essay explaining in exacting detail how I would use the '"Five Finger Exploding Heart Technique" on Danny Kasparzak because of the wedgie he gave me in gym glass.

I know, I know-- we live in the post-Columbine era, everybody most be be careful.

But there's common caution, and then there's common sense. And putting a felony charge on a ten year-old for a drawing must fall in the latter category.

Anyways, the Opinion Journal's James Taranto covers the "Zero Tolerance Watch" beat much better than I do, so I'll just sit here quietly.

And plot my imminent murderous reign of vengeance in silence.

UPDATE: In the comments, Amish warns us about the dangers of drawing stick figures.

Hey, if you want to see the most dangerous stick figure of all, see the Subservient Stickman.

Not as original as the Subservient Chicken, but at least Mr. Stickman actually hangs himself when you type in "hang."

Now THAT'S customer service.
