Submission + - Bullied student punished for recording incident

AK Marc writes: Whether it's the fact that it's a "disabled" student with ADHD, or the wiretapping was done with an iPad, stupid overreacting authorities, or bullies, this has Meme written all over it.

A 15 year old student was feeling bullied. He reported it, but nothing was done. He was being bullied in class time. So he recorded it on his school-provided iPad, provided because he has ADHD. When he took an incident to the school authorities, he was ordered to delete the file, the police were called, and he was arrested (and convicted) though one source indicates the charges were dropped and another indicates he was convicted, but overturned on appeal. . The charge was disorderly conduct, but he was also formally accused of (but not charged with) wiretapping violations.
