Tolerance zero

In the wake of various acts of violence in recent years, school administrators no longer hesitate before turning a child over the criminal justice system for the most petty of offenses.

Just for the record I would like to state that I am guilty. When I was in the third and fourth grade, my best friend and I used to draw all sorts of violent, sexist, disturbing stick figure drawings and the teachers never even blinked (click to enlarge).

I still have two three notebooks full of drawings. Yep, I kept them. And my old best friend is now a cop. Here's one of his drawings of a series of torture rooms:

The evidence is right here. Come and arrest me you chicken-shit motherfuckers.

I won't mention all the stuff we set on fire and blew up.

In related news, I just finished reading Columbine by Dave Cullen. It's an excellent retelling of exactly what happened with plenty of cogent psychological analysis. Forget all the myths you've heard, this is the real deal. Except in the minds of the negative reviewers.

Nice, I used to draw pictures of automated human torture machines. I kept them for a long time until I had to start traveling to different countries. Then I burned them to be on the safe side. But yeah when we're kids we let off steam by drawing stuff... its either that or we enter school and shoot everyone :P
