David Riehm’s essays

`Minnesota high school student David Riehm submitted graphic essays in his creative writing class, prompting his teacher, Ann Mershon, to alert authorities. Not only was Riehm suspended from school, but authorities took him into custody and committed him to a psychiatric ward. A physician later determined David was neither mentally ill nor dangerous, and he was released. He and his mother filed a civil suit against school and county officials.’
