How would you feel if you wrote a fictional story and are arrested for it? Well, earlier this year there was a woman arrested for child pornography, but there were no actual children involved – she wrote a book depicting child pornography. Now, a Kentucky high-schooler is facing similar problems as he was arrested and facing felony charges! What was his crime, you ask? Well, William Moore, 18-year-old high school student from Kentucky, wrote a fictional piece on zombies taking over a high school. You heard it right – it wasn’t his high school and it certainly wasn’t a legitimate terrorist plot, but the police thought it was a credible threat and arrested Moore.

“My story is based on fiction,” said Moore, who faces a second-degree felony terrorist threatening charge. “It’s a fake story. I made it up. I’ve been working on one of my short stories, (and) the short story they found was about zombies. Yes, it did say a high school. It was about a high school over ran by zombies.”

Even so, police say the nature of the story makes it a felony. “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.

The lesson here? No one is safe from ignorance and stupidity, but it’s even worse coming from law enforcement and the government. FUCK. KENTUCKY. AND. ITS. GOVERNING. BODY. Way to encourage future Stephen Kings there, chicken boys.
