What is happening to us here in America? He’s a kid!
GRAY, LOUISIANA – A 15-year old boy was arrested for posting a Youtube video he made with the “Real Strike” app from his phone. The application take a video from your mobile device and superimposes a picture of a gun over it. The student allegedly recorded his classmates with the harmless application and uploaded the video of him appearing to shoot his friends with an animated gun. The boy is being charged with terrorizing his classmates at H.L. Bourgeois High school.

Welcome to America! Where the rules are made up and the constitution doesn’t matter.
