*Somebody* involved was on drugs.

This is pathetic.

Police in Aurora [Illinois] have confirmed that a 12-year-old boy who said he brought powdered sugar to school for a science project last week has been charged with a felony for possessing a look-alike drug.

The boy[…] said two other boys asked if the bag contained cocaine after he showed it to them in the bathroom Wednesday morning. The boy’s mother said he told them it did, but then added, “just kidding.”

A 12-year old makes an adolescent joke about a bag of sugar actually being cocaine, (when prompted by his buddies), and is charged with a felony.

It is utterly pathetic and disgusting that the news story here is NOT one of school officlals (and police officials) being fired with extreme prejudice for irresponsible behavior, overreacting, and gross negligence in theire duties to educate and serve schoolchildren.
