A Georgia high school student was visited by police and suspended from school last week after posting on his Facebook profile: “Students of cchs ur in for a big surprise tomorrow <let the games begin>”

John George, a sophomore at Crawford County High School, had made plans to dress up as Santa Claus and hand out candy at the school first thing in the morning. But parents and police officers who viewed the post took it as a threat in the wake of the horrific school shooting in Connecticut.

“As soon as we got to school we were going to meet up in the bathroom and get dressed and then go to the gym and give out candy canes and chill with our other friends,” John told a local news station.

But before he could carry out the plot, police arrived on the young man’s doorstep.

“We then spoke briefly about the nature of the post and how with the recent tragedy of school shootings that had occurred that the post could cause unrest if taken the wrong way. We then left the residence without further incident,” the police report stated.

No charges were filed, but when John returned to school he was promptly suspended. School officials said his words were “disturbing” and described his Facebook profile as having a “very Gothic and dark theme.”
