FIY, dinosaurs have been extinct for quite some time!
A 16 year old freshman from a high school in South Carolina had to write a story for one of his classes. The boy, identified as Alex Stone, used his creativity for the assignment and wrote that one of his neighbors was keeping a dinosaur as a domesticated pet. In the story the schoolboy, wrote that he used a gun to kill the dinosaur. His teachers were so affected by his story that they called the police. The law enforcement officers overreacted and searched through the boy’s personal belongings for an alleged gun. When Alex incensed at their actions, they arrested him. The arrest was followed up by a 3-day long suspension from the school.
Alex’ mother was extremely upset by the whole situation. She claimed that school should have called her first and that there was nothing wrong with Alex. She also stated that he’s not old enough to even buy a gun, let alone kill a creature that has been extinct millions of years ago.
