The deadly f5 attack

UNIONTOWN -- A Stark County high school senior has been arrested and charged for allegedly trying to crash his school's computer system. Police say the student, created a website which connected to the school's system. When enough users logged on and hit the F5 button, it overloaded the school's system. They say that he might receive jail time for his crime, but I don't really see a crime here. In fact I see this as a person who wasn't being challenged enough by his school and then turned his abilities towards something else. The school should employ him and find out how he found the hole in the schools system. But I guess the school has to save face, so community service and other action are in order
