A Kentucky high school student named William Poole was arrested last week after the cops ransacked his room and found a journal in which Poole had described a vicious zombie attack against an unnamed high school.
Poole says the whole affair is a misunderstanding, and that the story the cops found was written as a short story for his 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.”
Lucky for us, the police aren’t buying it. They recognize a threat when they see one:
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.
I, for one, am glad that the great state of Kentucky had the foresight to ban the “possession of matter involving a school or function.” Because that’s how zombie hordes are formed, you know.
