The map the boy designed mimicked Clements High School. And, sources said, it was uploaded either to the boy’s home computer or to a computer server where he and his friends could access and play on it. Two parents apparently learned from their children about the existence of the game, and complained to FBISD administrators, who investigated.Making maps of familiar places is commonplace in gaming. In middle school, some friends and I based an entire campaign around the Middle School. Teachers were present as "Boss Monsters" you had to kill, along with the normal monster fare you would find in a Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Oh and Bill the Cat. Our DM had a thing for Bill the Cat.
We grew up to be upstanding citizens of the community.
The police searched his house, and did they find and guns or bombs??????????
Oh a hammer. A dangerous hammer.
“They arrested him,” Chen said of FBISD police, “and also went to the house to search.” The Lin family consented to the search, and a hammer was found in the boy’s room, which he used to fix his bed, because it wasn’t in good shape, Chen said. He indicated police seized the hammer as a potential weapon.
“They decided he was a terroristic threat,” said one source close to the district’s investigation.
The word terrorist is thrown around all too liberally the last 5 to 6 years, and it has to stop. I wont get into it here, maybe on the Poop Laden Blog some day.
Sources said that although no charges were filed against the boy, he was removed from Clements, sent to the district’s alternate education school and won’t be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies with classmates.I don't understand why the boy is being punished. No charges were filed, and all they found was a hammer to fix his bed. Oh ya. He's Chinese.
