This has to be the dumbest accusation of a terrorist threat that has ever been reported. How in the name of all the snowflake in the world could a mathematical symbol be mistaken for the icon for a weapon? That is just what happened in a high school, no less. The Allen Parish Sheriff’s office even went so far as to go search the student’s home. Wouldn’t you just love to be that parent? Just. Stupid.
As Written and Reported By Dave Urbanski for The Blaze:
A Louisiana high school student was finishing up a math problem and drew the square root symbol, authorities told KATC-TV.
Problem was, another student allegedly said the square root symbol looked like a gun — and several other students made similar comments, Allen Parish Sheriff’s deputies told the station.
And with that, deputies launched an investigation of a terrorist threat allegation at Oberlin High School on Tuesday
