It's a Good Thing Steven King Isn't in School Now

Via Boing Boing:
A Lexington, KY high school student, William Poole, was arrested and jailed for writing a story about zombies. The charge is second degree terroristic threatening. In response to Poole's assertions that the story is fiction, police had this to say:

"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.

It's good to know that the police in Kentucky are on the job, protecting zombies from "terrorstic threats".
