Kid Wrongfully Incarcerated Because Of Daylight Savings Time

The fifteen year old kid was put in jail for 12 days. Perhaps it's time we settled on one time standard.

I got this story from PassablyNews.com via Slashdot:

A fifteen-year old boy in America was incarcerated for twelve days, wrongly accused of making a hoax bomb threat - because his school had forgotten that the clocks had gone forward.

The full story is amazing, and I recommend you read it.

Essentially, we have another case of a school making a mistake, and someone else getting arrested for it. Just like the Julie Amero case.
