Forest Gump once stated, "...stupid as stupid is!..." It must have been a boring writing class to be so threatening in this day and age. It's not being very creative to show blood, guts, and gore in a disturbing writing project. Freedom of Speech covers a lot of expression but not murderous, schizophrenic veiled threats! All great writers and/or dissenters think out their subject matter before they write. Creative writing deserves focus thinking which I guess wasn't apparently done here.

Hopefully, this kid can get some help. He's a ticking bomb.

I am a personal friend of the kid who wrote the story. He's not crazy, he's a very good writer and a lot of his writings introduce a certain shock factor. Just like things Frank Miller would write. He's fine.
