Root Symbol in Math Class

FEBRUARY 22, 2018 BY HEMANT MEHTA

In a story that I didn’t believe at first, a student at a Louisiana high school was investigated — the police searched his home for weapons — because his classmates said he made vague threats and drew something that looked like a gun.

It was actually a square root sign.

This happened in math class.

Seriously. They went into his home to make sure he didn’t have weapons to carry out his alleged “terrorist” threat.

I guess they all thought he was…

(•_•) ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■)

… radicalized.

Here’s the message posted on the Facebook page for the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office.

On Tuesday afternoon, February 20th, Detectives investigated an allegation of terrorist threats at the Oberlin High School. The investigation revealed that a student was completing a math problem and drew the sign for square root. Another student made a comment that the symbol looked like a gun and several other students made similar comments. The student in question made a comment, which taken out of context, “could” sound like a threat. Detectives also searched the students home and found no evidence that he possessed or had immediate access to any type of firearm. Further there was no evidence that the student had any intent to commit harm upon any students or faculty.

The student used extremely poor judgement in making the comment, but in light of the actual circumstances, there was clearly no evidence to support criminal charges.

The matter was turned over to the Allen Parish School Board for determination of disciplinary action.

I don’t know what he said that concerned his classmates so much, but this seems like irrational thinking run wild.

The student comment? -- Yep, it looks like a gun, and if you're square you'll be buried root deep... ;-)

After the FBI screw up over the Florida shooting, no one wants to take any chances by not looking into any and everything that comes anywhere remotely into the vicinity of being in the ballpark of looking like it might possibly be anything at all that somewhat resembles any real threat.

The police clearly have too much time on their hands.

Wasn't there some helpless old person in a wheelchair they could have been tasing instead?

Did they really screw up?

They can't check every lead. It just isn't practical.

It's not a perfect world.

I think that yes, they did. They had specific info about this guy and it the information was well beyond the min required to cause concern.

I point out all the numerous instances of the FBI, upon getting a tip about some muslim that said something somewhat critical of US foreign policy, would go through all the hassle of sending in an "informant" that would encourage this guy to actually do something like get an radio controlled plane to fly into something, and then bust him for taking steps to do what the informant encouraged him to do. The FBI has done this exact type of entrapment numerous times which requires a lot more resources than responding to a real warning.

If the FBI is going to brag and advertise about all the terrorist threats they supposedly thwarted by entrapping people like the guy above, then yes, when they miss a real one even after being told about it, they screwed up.

I guess going through all the informant entrapment stuff is just so much more cool than investigating someone with mental issues. Maybe they figured a mental case is not someone they could ever have an informant befriend, so they didn't bother. Maybe it just doesn't sound as good bragging in Congress about stopping a mental case than it does stopping a muslim.

Anybody who would think a square root symbol represents a gun is a dumb ass.

Anybody who would give legitimacy to such beliefs is even more of a dumb ass.

Why stop the "mental cases" from shooting up America?? They appear to be "assets".

Who has been doing the heavy lifting on the #1 Leftist Goal of their Agenda of NULLIFYING THE 2A? Yup. Deranged Leftists-Dems (though the MSM always immediately attempts to float misinfo/disinfo that the mass killers are "Right-Wing" or "White Nationalists." Gee, from whom do they get THAT data? Ooops. Some of that propaganda has come directly from the Feebs themselves.)

As to stopping Muzzies, the Feebs haven't quite, have they? Neither would the CIA, given Brennan was himself a Muzzie AND one time Commie voter.

The Feeb Echelon have caused their credibility gap, cynicism and mistrust, and exposed subversive agenda in several ways. Many of the reasons have emerged in the daylight since they've been caught framing Trump. They were centrally involved in the Dossier and election tampering; But this subversion of agency LE objectives and its political Left agenda began far earlier during the Waco debacle.

A couple of examples which you've mentioned -- "Entrapment" of marginal or non-existent threats; And allowing several "mental cases" to go on with their clear and repeated threats...

They also the ignored intel heads-ups on the Tsarnaev Bros (Boston Marathon) as well as completely overlooking several of the 911 Muzzie T-Ists (OR WAS THIS INTENTIONAL??)

Other killers who were ignored and allowed to do their thang despite obvious Red Flags:

Nidal Hasan – Ft Hood Shooter (widely known by peers to be deranged Jihadi)

Aaron Alexis, Navy Yard shooter (0bama voter)

Seung-Hui Cho – Virginia Tech shooter - Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff, registered Dem.

James Holmes – Colorado theater shooter: Another registered Dem, staff worker on the 0bama campaign, #Occu­py guy, raging liberal, anti-Christian.

Stephen Paddock -- Vegas Patsy/Mss Murderer, Antifa supporter (FBI sandbagging and covering up investigation.)

James T. Hodgkinson -- Scalise shooter raged on Facebook: "It's time to destroy Trump & Co." (FBI missed that. Investigation and Media curiosity into the shooter have been conspicuously quiet compared to Gabby Giffords. Outrage from Dems on a scale from 1-10: "1".)

Jared Lee Loughner -- AZ killer who shot Gabby Giffords, a raging liberal who was immediately tied to Sarah Palin by CNN as well as the entire Leftist MSM. Oh...and the Feebs immediately tried to portray him as connected to “Christian anti-abortion groups.”

Syed Rizwan Farook -- San Bernadino mass murderer -- noted anti-Christian who hated Christmas. Evidence surfaced within days of the attack that he and his fiance (released ASAP) had been planning some form of assault for around a year. (Was FBI negligence of this as well as other incidents ordered by the 0bama Admin?)

So...given what we now know about the record, what was and is the agenda of the FBI? (especially during the 0bama Admin?)

If the FBI is going to brag and advertise about all the terrorist threats they supposedly thwarted by entrapping people like the guy above, then yes, when they miss a real one even after being told about it, they screwed up.

Q: ARE these actual "screw ups"? OR purposeful negligence in order to help facilitate and accelerate an anti-2A agenda by the Left and Globalists?

The evidence strongly suggests a very disturbing answer.

These kinds of LE overreach are NOT "preventative," or related to any sort of "safety precaution"; They are simply "toe-in-the-water" fascist exercises that gauge public reaction to it.

We saw this exercise -- though obviously to a much greater scale -- in the post Boston Marathon Martial Law rehearsal and house-to-house violation of the 4A.

You're describing left-wing loonies exactly..

I originally considered posting this article under 'humor', because the whole incident was so dumb... -- Surprised its being taken so seriously...

Honestly, I thought this would be a satire article, which would be funny.

Sadly, it's not.

It's amusing, in a sickning sorta way, to see such overreaction, to overreacting.

Could it be the whole nation is having some sort of mental breakdown? ;-)
