    In short, a student accidentally left a shotgun in his truck after skeet shooting and took it to school. When he realized this, he called his Mom so she could call him out and he could take it home. Someone overheard his apparently less-than-subtle conversation, and the stuff hit the fan as you could predict....

    Now, I know some here are not going to be forgiving of what was very much a serious mistake that should not have been made. But please at least read the following before deciding to write the kid off:

    According to the news, a few years ago the school's assistant principal (presumably accidentally) brought a loaded handgun on school property in her car. Her punishment? Three days' suspension!!!

    Now, if they'd have thrown the book at HER and tried to destroy HER life over it, the "Free Cole" people might have less of a leg to stand on. But as it is....!


    Here is the phone number for the school: (919) 936-6431

    Here is the phone number for the NC Governor’s office: (919) 733-5811

    There's a site to buy shirts to help with the legal bills...though I'm kinda "meh" about things that say "a PORTION of the proceeds..." - anyway till I know of a better way, here it is: http://www.freecole.com/main.sc
    (and at least with a shirt, you can show solidarity and also help spread the word)

    This is another fine example of "educators" without brains.

    Who is the prosecuting attorney in this situation? Would said attorney be the one who should hear from the public? I would think it would be at their discretion as to weather or not to take the case to court.

    That's too bad. Yet another reason to keep your mouth shut in this society. There was a time when a plain jane mistake would be understood. Not anymore. Say nothing and try to correct it yourself.
