16-year old student at Cedar Creek High School in Atlantic County was arrested after police found bomb-making materials in his home.
According to the Press of Atlantic City, a teacher at the school noticed the boy had drawings of weapons in his notebook. She reported it to authorities and when investigators went to the boys home they found chemicals and electronic parts that could be used to form a bomb. The student was placed in Harborfields Detention Center.
A sweep of the school revealed no bombs. No threat had been made by the student. Cedar Creek is a magnet school that focuses on engineering, environmental sciences and hands-on learning.
Police Chief Pat Moran said there was no indication that any danger had been posed to the school or to any person. The family cooperated with the investigation.
So all of this is based on drawings?
this is warped
Cedar Creek is a magnet school that focuses on engineering, environmental sciences and hands-on learning.But God forbid you even think about guns or draw pictures. What have we done to boys in this country? The elite liberals have spent decades turning our future MEN into effete little woman wannabe’s.What they are attacking this boy for is what was considered normal when I was growing up. Now anything that used to be normal young male behavior has become suspect and criminalized.
I used to draw guns in school (one of my father’s hobbies was gunsmith) :p
I also used to draw dinosaurs... is that a threat too?
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.
Interesting. Klebold and Harris also had drawings of explosives.
This is a case of damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
The boy’s family should sue that do-gooder teacher, and the school.
Sounds like he's doing work at home based on what he's learning at school. This raid was based on a drawing one of his teachers saw? Kinda flimsy basis for a search, I'd think, especially with no threats or previous problems with this student.
