    Students in Louisiana thought this math symbol looked like a gun. Police were called

    You think that's bad? Keep reading!

    A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office.

    Got that? Not only are the kids stupid, but the sheriff's office - presumably filled with adults - is just as dumb!

    After several students made comments along those lines, another student said something the sheriff’s office said could have sounded like a threat out of context.

    Police searched the student’s home, where they found no guns or any evidence that he had any access to guns. Authorities also wrote there was no evidence the student had any intent to commit harm.

    “The student used extremely poor judgment in making the comment, but in light of the actual circumstances, there was clearly no evidence to support criminal charges,” the department wrote, adding that the school board had been contacted to determine any disciplinary action for the student.

    You might be thinking, "Well, they thought they had a threat. So they had to investigate."

    No. What they HAD to do was question the kids to find out what was said, then make a judgment. Maybe they would have decided to look anyway. But that's done after at least trying to find out if a threat was made, there was a misunderstanding, etc. You don't go busting doors down first and asking questions later. At least, that's not how it's supposed to be done.
