I think that's a funny response for an unnecessary comment from your classmate. Seems to me your teacher overreacted; most of my teachers when I was in school would've laughed that off. Sorry OP!
? It may be wrong to invoke common sense on a fml comment, but this stuff is no joke in an age where these kids are making bombs and killing children in school. If the teacher did nothing and this person was serious, people would be threatening this teachers life after an incident. Jokes like this are out of place in a school just like bomb jokes are out of place in airports.
Not defending anyone but currently the world is in a mess and everyone should be a little more vigilant; but not over sensitive
Well with the bad news of school shootings and whatnot maybe your teacher's just a bit nervous when it comes to comments like that. I'd say be careful when you're in his/her class from now on. /: Sorry your joke got taken so seriously, OP!
In all fairness, you are in the States, and you lot have a tendency to lose your shit and shoot up schools every couple of months. But I also think the teacher was overreacting, because as you said, few people plot murder out loud.
