While Jared Loughner and his possible accomplice were supposedly cutting lethally loose with a machine pistol in Tucson, MrMR sent us this item about schoolgirls going to jail for just joking about violence.

(01-07) 15:34 PST Reno, Nev. (AP) -- Six girls have been arrested after students were invited on Facebook to take part in "Attack a Teacher Day" at two middle schools. One girl was accused of inviting about 100 students on the social networking website to participate in the event Friday, and the other five were accused of responding with online threats against specific teachers, Carson Middle School Principal Dan Sadler said. The Nevada Appeal in Carson City reported the girls were booked Wednesday at juvenile hall on a misdemeanor charge of communicating threats. Their names were not released. While the students insisted it was a joke, Sadler noted they were arrested on the same day a suspended 17-year-old student in Omaha, Neb., fatally shot an assistant principal and wounded his principal before fleeing the campus and taking his own life. "School shootings really happen. That's why we took it seriously," Sadler told The Associated Press on Friday. "It's not OK, and it's not funny in this day and age if you're going to make a threat against a teacher." (Click here for more)
