Student Arrested For Terroristic Threatening Says Incident A Misunderstanding

A George Rogers Clark High School junior arrested Tuesday for making terrorist threats told LEX 18 News Thursday that the "writings" that got him arrested are being taken out of context.

Winchester police say William Poole, 18, was taken into custody Tuesday morning. Investigators say they discovered materials at Poole's home that outline possible acts of violence aimed at students, teachers, and police.

Poole told LEX 18 that the whole incident is a big misunderstanding. He claims that what his grandparents found in his journal and turned into police was a short story he wrote for English class.

"My story is based on fiction," said Poole, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. "It's a fake story. I made it up. I've been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies."

Even so, police say the nature of the story makes it a felony. "Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it's a felony in the state of Kentucky," said Winchester Police detective Steven Caudill.

Poole disputes that he was threatening anyone.

"It didn't mention nobody who lives in Clark County, didn't mention (George Rogers Clark High School), didn't mention no principal or cops, nothing,"
said Poole. "Half the people at high school know me. They know I'm not that stupid, that crazy."

On Thursday, a judge raised Poole's bond from one to five thousand dollars after prosecutors requested it, citing the seriousness of the charge.

Poole is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.


I've said it before, and I'll say it again: stupid people shouldn't breed.

...Anytime you make any threat or possess matter involving a school or function it's a felony in the state of Kentucky...
Does anyone else find that particularly inane?

First they take the kid into custody for a felony, then they bump his bond to five grand because of the seriousness of the charge?

Fuck me with a persimmon.

Re: WOW-OMEGACON
Well lessee... I been working my ass off doing as much overtime as possible at my $12 an hour job, and even though I eat only one time a day to keep costs down, got a pay as you go phone I now took the autopay (140-some dollars a month) off of, pay $50 in cab fare to get to work (on damn SUNDAY of all days), my RENT was late so I had to pay $50 extra dollars in late fees, AND I overdrew at my bank yesterday BY A DOLLAR!!! So it cost me FORTY DOLLARS!! I AM STILL going to OMEGA-CON if I have to CRAWL there like a crippled ZOMBIE. (I best start now then as shuffling can take some time)

I made $200 dollars restoring old photos and that is my share of the hotel and gas for me and the lady musichad to go.

I already paid for both our admission...SO the short answer is YES I will finally be able to pleasure you in the manner to which you have become accustomed. :)

I have had 2 O-Con dreams in the last week... one good one involving the Wick's (don't ask) and one BAD one...

I am waiting for the one where You and I play "apples to apples" together... IF you know what I MEAN.

I hope our friendly Dept of Homeland Security (DoH Security) doesn't get wind of my D&D game. There are groups friendly to the PCs who engage in redirecting hurricanes to threaten shipping interests, friendlies burning manor houses to the ground, and the PCs are currently scoping out the de facto boundaries of the enemy empire and are planning fun and excitement for later within enemy empire borders.

I suppose there will be no more Leon Uris novels, since these people seem to be unable to distinguish fact from fiction.

So, um, does that mean news reports about Columbine or Virginia Tech are illegal too? Or how about owning/renting "Heathers"?

Yeah...
My kid was written up with a disciplinary note (which was also mailed to our house). The "incident", he forgot that he was not allowed to wear a hat to school.

A hat.

OK, its in the dress code that they aren't allowed to wear hats, but seriously? A hat is a permenant record offense?

Sheesh.

Re: Yeah...
You're kidding me, right? Can't wear a hat to school? I can understand not being allowed to wear a hat in the classroom, but what if it's cold outside? Can he wear a hat outside the school and inside for the length of time it takes him to get to his locker and put it away?

It's starting to get cold around here and if I were still a kid, my mother would be hounding me to wear a hat.

Re: Yeah...
Yup. Same rule at our kids' schools. Both of 'em. You also can't carry your backpack around in school.

Dangerous things, hats. You never know what kids might be hiding underneath them... like the brains the administrators are missing.

It's a good thing they caught him before he led his zombie army on an attack against the high school.
