Boy, 13, Busted For Illegal Marker Possession

I mean really? This is just idiotic and absurd, don't they have better things to punish kids for? I could see if it was just the school, if they had problems with vandalism or something... but they took the kid to a juvenile detention center OVER A DAMN MARKER!!!


"A 13-year-old boy was arrested Friday for using a permanent marker while in class at his Oklahoma City middle school, a violation of an obscure city ordinance. 

According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, the boy was spotted “in possession of a permanent marker” by Roosevelt Middle School teacher DeLynn Woodside. The 50-year-old educator told cop Miguel Campos that the student was “writing on a piece of paper, which caused it to bleed over onto the desk.”

Woodside, pictured at right, reported that the child, whose name was redacted by police from the report, attempted to hide the marker when she asked him for it. Strangely, Woodside’s Facebook page reveals that her “likes and interests” include the official “Sharpie Permanent Markers” page on Facebook." See the rest HERE
