We've all gone crazy!

MANTUA, Ohio - A high school student in Portage County was arrested after deputies said he posted on Facebook a picture of himself holding an assault rifle.

The Portage County Sheriff's Office arrested the 17-year-old Crestwood High School student Tuesday morning.

According to investigators, the school alerted authorities after becoming "aware and concerned" about Facebook postings by this student and that he had his profile picture set to an image of him holding an assault rifle.

The student is facing two counts of inducing panic, one count of aggravated menacing and one count of telecommunications harassment.

The teen is being held in at the Portage/Geauga County Juvenile Detention Facility

I tell people all the time. Do NOT post pictures of yourself drinking alcohol, fighting, doing drugs and especially holding guns! The sheep scare easily.

Leads me to believe he was harassing or bullying or threatening another student and the photo was there for intimidation purposes.

Don't get me wrong, I think it is a load of crap, but still...

That's what I was thinking... Like he threatened to get all G-unit on someone, then posted the picture to prove how thug he really was to his classmates.

There has got to be more to this story other then just having a pic of himself holding a rifle... How many hunting magazines do you see kids (under 18 )holding a rifle/shotgun near a down deer or turkey?

Note that the article says, contrary to the subject of this thread, that they were concerned about his postings.  _and_ they said his profile picture was holding an assault weapon.

Some of his postings (according to the article):

"Who agrees with their friend that it is a good idea to shoot up a school?"
"I'm close to going on a stabbing spree. I can't take some of these people anymore."
This is inching towards where I thought it would go.

Picture of you and a rifle = fine.

Picture of you with a rifle and easily taken out of context comment = dumbass

I dont think you need to take his comments out of context. He is pretty stupid and deserved what's coming to him, maybe it will scare him straight.
