OCALA, Fla. -- Two boys, ages 9 and 10, were charged with felonies and taken
away from school in handcuffs, accused of making violent drawings of stick
figures.

The boys were arrested Monday on charges of making a written threat to kill


or harm another person, a second-degree felony.

The special education students used pencil and red crayon to draw primitive
stick figure scenes on scrap paper that showed a 10-year-old classmate being
stabbed and hung, police said.

2 Students Charged With Felonies Over Stick Figure Drawings
"The officer found they were drawing these pictures for the sole purpose of
intimidating and scaring the victim," said Ocala Police Sgt. Russ Kern.

The boy depicted in the drawings told his teacher, who took the sketches and
contacted the school dean, Marty Clifford. Clifford called police, who
arrested the boys after consulting with the State Attorney's Office.

They were also suspended from school.
One drawing showed the two boys standing on either side of the other boy and
"holding knives pointed through" his body, according to a police report. The
figures were identified by written names or initials.

Another drawing showed a stick figure hanging, tears falling from his eyes,
with two other stick figures standing below him. Other pieces of scrap paper
listed misspelled profanities and the initials of the boy who was allegedly
threatened.

Parents of both of the arrested boys said they thought the boys should be
punished by the school and families, not the legal system.

Ocala police said they stand behind the decision to arrest the children.
"When an adult or even myself look at the picture looked at it at first I
was thinking there is really not much to the picture or I would not be that
scared by the picture those children drew," Ocala police spokesman Russ
Kearn said. "However, we have to put ourselves in his mind and that's the
bottom line here. It is his well-being and the way he perceived that picture
to be. It actually put him in extreme fear and he was in fear for his life."
