Police Called After Students Said the Square Root Symbol Looked Like a Gun
23 February, 2018
Police in Oberlin, Louisiana were called after some high school students thought the mathematical symbol for square root looked like a gun.
The symbol apparently led to a discussion among students, which led to a comment, which lead to a misunderstanding, which led to a police call.
Because of the square root symbol.
From the Miami Herald:
A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office.
On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign.
Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.
After several students made comments along those lines, another student said something the sheriff’s office said could have sounded like a threat out of context.
The report added that "Police searched the student’s home, where they found no guns or any evidence that he had any access to guns. Authorities also wrote there was no evidence the student had any intent to commit harm."
Allen Parish Sheriff Doug Hebert told PJ Media, however, that all his deputies did was knock on the kid's door.
"The whole notion that there was a SWAT raid over a math symbol is absurd," Hebert told PJM. "I got a call from a KPLC that they had a serious threat of a shooting at the school, so we went to the house to verify. There was no search warrant, we just sent two [deputies] to knock on the door. This is a small parish and everybody knows everybody and we found out very quickly there was no crime and no threat."
According to PJ Media, however, the student in question could end up facing disciplinary action by the school itself, up to and including expulsion.
Just…..oh Lord, help us.

It Was Warmer In The Arctic Circle On Sunday Than In Boston, RaisingAlarm At ‘Freakish’ Warming Trend
Record warmth in the Arctic this month could yet prove to be a freak occurrence, but experts warn the warming event is unprecedented
Meanwhile, in Antarctica
More precise measurements show West Antarctica ice melt accelerating
The researchers noted that several parts of western Antarctica are experiencing acceleration of ice loss, rather than the consistent ice loss seen on the eastern parts of Antarctica. In practical terms, this means that each year, less ice that melts in the summer is replaced by winter snows, leaving less ice in total—and the pace of this process is speeding up. They note also that this is particularly alarming because prior research has shown that much of the ice in the western part of Antarctica is unstable, which means that large swaths could slip into the sea, causing a dramatic and relatively speedy rise in worldwide ocean levels. If the whole western ice sheet goes, they further note, the world could see ocean levels rise as much as three meters.
Some of the areas identified in the new images are the same parts of western Antarctica that have made headlines in recent years as major calving events have occurred, highlighting changes taking place. An increase in calving, the researchers note, can be problematic, placing large regions of ice at increasing risk of melting.

YouTube Backs Down After Putting InfoWars On Verge Of Deactivation

YouTube issued a second strike to Alex Jones's main channel early Tuesday over a pair of videos related to the Florida school shooting - bringing it perilously close to termination, and loss of one of its main revenue streams, however the second strike was removed hours later for unknown reasons.
"This is the second strike applied to your account within three months," the notice reads. "As a result, you're unable to post new content to YouTube for two weeks. If there are no further issues, the ability to upload will be automatically restored after this two week period."
