What has this world come to...

An 18 year old high school student was arrested and charged with felony. For what you may say? He allegedly created a blog where he encouraged people to visit his school's site and press refresh to slow the server down. The network admin tracked down the site and called the police to investigate. The student was arrested and is currently in jail. Does making a blog that tells people to refresh a page as a joke, really deserve a felony and jail time. According to Canton City Prosecutor Frank Forchione, “Michael said it was a joke. We showed him how we deal with this kind of joke.”
