tanman writes: A Chinese student at the Houston-area Clements High School was arrested, sent to an "Alternative Education Center" and banned from graduation after school officials found he created a video game map of his school (Google mirror). School district police arrested the teen and searched his home where they confiscated a hammer as a "potential weapon". ' "They decided he was a terroristic threat," said one source close to the district's investigation. ' With an upcoming May 12 school board election, this issue has quickly become political, with school board members involved in the appeal accusing each other of pandering to the Chinese community in an attempt to gain votes.
