Basically an 18 year old student in Kentucky has been arrested on Terror Charges after his grandparents found, and handed to police, a short story he'd been writing about a school being overrun by zombies. Said school was not his own nor where any of the characters. Apparently in Kentucky it is a crime to make any threat involving a school or function - so I guess they should start banning a lot of films, novels, etc over there!
The student says it is all a big misunderstanding as the story was for his English class whilst the judge has upped his bond from $1000 to $5000 due to 'the seriousness of the charge'.
Now there is a ton of things that should disturb everyone about this story but apart from the fact that he's currently in custody over writing a 'zombie' story it's also bloody worrying that HIS grandparents handed in the story to the police in the first place. 1984 anyone?
