Students call police over math symbol that ‘looks like a pistol’

After last week’s tragic shooting at a Parkland, Fla. high school, tensions are high in classrooms across America.

A student at Oberlin High School in Louisiana was investigated and searched by police on Tuesday due to a conversation that arose when he and his classmates noted that the square root mathematical symbol resembles a gun, the Miami Herald reports.

Well that’s one way to get out of class.
