The thought police takes down and arrested an 11 year old boy for drawing stick figures.

If our society was mirroring George Orwell's classic novel "1984, this story wouldn't even have been news worthy. I believe that if the government had the power to arrest people just because of what they deem inappropriate thoughts, they would do it in a heart beat. With political correctness, that is in a sense what is happening now. Can you imagine your child being arrested for writing down on paper what he or she had on their mind? An 11 year old boy at the request from his therapist was told to write down his thoughts as a way to channel his behavior away from disrupting his class. This was the consequences.

This was clearly an overreaction by the boy's school. Now because of his arrest, the experience of going to jail will probably cause him more psychological problems then he had before he was handcuffed, finger printed and put in a jail cell.

I'd have been expelled from school for my drawings they were so violent. Good thing that was back in the 80s.

As incredibly stupid as it is disgraceful. It's CYA run amok.

They're more concerned about what he drew on a piece of paper? Oh, the humanity!

This reminds me a long time ago when a child got suspended from school for drawing soldiers shooting at each other.

There are more serious issues in school to be dealt with other than getting arrested for drawing your thoughts on a piece of paper. NAMELY BULLYING!

But what I don't get is this: why are they more concerned about what a child draws and gets suspended, or arrested? Why are schools not more concerned about the bullying that goes around?

(from Renee) Why should this story shock anyone today? Children, and in particular, boys are unfortunately being victimized, repeatedly by our so called, compassionate, liberal watchdogs.
Whether it's an irate feminist with an ax to grind, or a liberal educator whose always on a quest to "open doors for disenfranchised minorities", no one is safe in this high-tect, information age, least of all an innocent child, who makes an attempt, in publicly exercizing their thoughts. How many stories have read about, within the past five years, of a young boy, being slapped with a sexual harassment violation on his grammar school record, for simply paying a female student, a compliment on her attire? It's a sad day in America, when a simple sketch by a child will merit an unjust arrest, while a handful of marginally-talented directors/writers on MTV, continue to win critical praise, by both their media enablers and misguided viewers, for engaging minors in their pornographic-themed television show!

Why aren't these officers out doing more important things like writing violations for folks not using seatbelts, or maybe failing to use a helmet while riding a bicycle?

Speaking of big brother, this is more like wealthy ultra liberal big brother of the big apple. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has just made it illegal to smoke in PUBLIC AREAS.

"Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed into law a ban on smoking on public streets, beaches, parks and plazas. The ban goes into effect 90 days after signing.

The power grab from the masses continues.

out of control government, liberal teacher's unions, lack of parental involvement, activist people creating teaching curriculum, etc.
