Santa Gets Suspended
When are people going to learn that following a tragedy like the recent elementary school shooting in Connecticut, the public is going to be very sensitive to perceived threats. And Facebook posts are no exception.
Unfortunately, this plan would never come to pass.
Overwhelmed with excitement and anticipation, George took to Facebook and posted the following message on his home page: “Students of cchs ur in for a big surprise tomorrow.”
Apparently, proper spelling isn’t part of the Crawford County curriculum.
Someone who saw George’s post found it threatening and called the cops, who investigated and found no need for worry. Nevertheless, principal Mike Campbell was not amused and suspended George pending a school investigation.
Roberta police chief Ben Thomas blew the case wide open once he finally made the obvious connection. “I guess it could have been that, with all the stuff that happened in the elementary school last week, the shootings and all, have people concerned.”
