GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. -
"It's ridiculously blown out of proportion."
That's how the mother of the 16-year-old Cedar Creek High School student arrested Tuesday described her son after local police found items at his home that could cause an explosion.
"He really cares about people," she said. "He's kind, he's loving, he's brilliant...I think this is fear because of what just happened in Connecticut."

I just watched “October Sky” recently. Could you imagine what they would do with Homer Hickem today?
>> So all of this is based on drawings?
Doubtful. I’m sure there’s something not being disclosed.
I wonder what “daddy” thinks.
I suspect that the pigs didn’t get a warrant and the parents consented. Pretty dumb thing to do...
>> kind, loving and brilliant...the typical description provided by the mother of a psychopath, especially the brilliant part.
I clearly remember the mother of convicted murderer John Spenkelink, executed by the state of Florida in 1979, blubbering about “what a good boy he was”. The news media spent way too much air time interviewing that fat sow. They loved it.
When I was a boy I never NEVER did any of those things,
in fact I never NEVER even THOUGHT of doing any of those
things and if I had, I would have turned my self in to
the proper authorities for mental evaluation and
When I discovered vinegar and baking soda nothing was safe until mom found out. Something about being wasteful.
When I was a kid I had a Genuine Lone Ranger Hollow Silver Bullet, ready for sending secret messages!!!
Yep, a little baking soda & vinegar and I had a live round!
Ahhh, the 1950’s!
“I’d be OK with a one time search and seizure operation.”
Surely you jest!
Ranks right up there with “Temporary Tax” and the original Income Tax:
“1913 Personal Income Tax System in 1994 Dollars
Tax Rate Income Level
1% up to $298,507
7% over $7,462,687
(A $44,776 exemption for single filers and $59,701 for a married couple.)
Drawing pictures of weapons is worthy of a search warrant? Wow.
Man. When I was a boy in the ‘60s I had drawings of weapons in my notebooks. Some were pretty innovative, IIRC.
And I have materials in my house today that could be made into bombs. Off the top of my head i can think of several combinations I could make into pretty deadly bombs. With $50 I could go to Lowes and make even more powerful ones.
This mom needs to sue for false arrest.
“While Im sure theres more to the story, it does seem like flimsy evidence upon which to base a warrant.”
Not necessarily so.
...”eleven-year-old Skylar Capo made the mistake of rescuing a woodpecker from the jaws of a cat and nursing him back to health for a couple of days. For her pains, a federal Fish & Wildlife gauleiter accompanied by state troopers descended on her house, charged her with illegal transportation of a protected species, issued her a $535 fine, and made her cry.”
How could I and my geek friends have missed out on that one?
But we did the flour in the can trick. Open end coffee can about ½ full flour tossed spinning to create dust cloud, ignite it! A nice loud WOOSH.
You can take books out of any public library that will teach anyone how to build bombs out of ordinary easily acquired substances and parts, books like the Anarchist Cook-book.
"He drew a glove with flames coming out of it," his mother said.
That's the whole story right there. Don't let neurotic fascists near your children. Home school!
“electronic parts and several chemicals that when mixed together could cause an explosion”
This current state of paranoia is getting a tad bit ridiculous. A kid drawing a flaming glove picture? Gimme a break. I remember kids in class drawing pictures of decapitated heads, stab wounds, etc. And while we’re at it, in my garage: gasoline, lawn/garden chemicals, batteries, etc. And in my basement: paint thinner, Drano, Clorox, ammonia, lamp oil, miscellaneous small parts, etc.
April 22, 1992 At 10:00 in the morning, residents of Guadalajara, Mexico noticed a manhole cover was bouncing up and down as white smoke puffed out of the sewer. Minutes later, the first of many explosions would rip the streets apart. When it was all over, 252 people were dead, 500 were injured and over 15,000 were left homeless. Aftermath of the Guadalajara sewer explosion.
Aftermath of the Guadalajara sewer explosion.
The disaster was mainly caused by a leaking Pemex gas line that dumped gasoline into the sewer system."
Probably way safer security-wise than a search on the Internet, unless using a computer at the library. Kids everywhere have always experimented with explosives, and always will. Mostly boys, however. My mom was always upset with me blowing up toy cars, etc., nearly took my fingers off a couple times. My grandfather used to dry homemade gunpowder on the stove (long before I came along, would not want to see that). Amazing that house-hold items like baking soda and cotton can be transformed by heat and mixing with other ordinary home chemicals.
