    Please make thread titles descriptive of the subject of the thread, not what you think. "So now we're all criminals ...." doesn't convey much useful information for the long term.

    Also note that we don't know what chemicals were found. Ammonia and bleach? Maybe, maybe not.

    You're busted. Let me find some used gloves for the cavity search.

    This really is disturbing to me.

    Here's a kid who even authorities admit has no disciplinary history, and had no apparent ill-intent... but they took him down anyway.

    Abundance of Caution will kill this country.

    They would have loved what went on in our minds when I was grade school. We were sketching out designs for rockets, fortunately we never got around to incinerating ourselves by testing our designs.

    Yes, I'd guess these days the movie "November Sky" ends with the kids being shipped off to Gitmo...

    December sky. It's December, midnight in Amerika.




    What nonsense. There was no evidence that this kid was up to anything, he was NOT up to anything, yet everyone involved in this circle jerk praises each other, after invading this boy's home and arresting him. I hope the family gets an attorney.
    beyond belief. When I was in boring classes in high school, I was always doodling pictures of swords, ships, tanks, and firearms. I'd a never been allowed to graduate in this insane witch hunting climate.

    That's the worst part - they see NOTHING WRONG with what they did. Mission accomplished!

    The photo with this article suggest that perhaps the kid was mixing fuel oil and fertilizer:

    New York Daily News: New Jersey student arrested after police find bomb-making materials at his home (Dec 19 2012)

    The photo (attributed to Noel Jabbour / AP) shows at least eleven 5-6 gallon yellow fuel containers. Yellow containers are normally used for diesel, which is a variant of no. 2 fuel oil.

    What isn't clear if the photo was a space-filler to accompany the article or an actual photo from the scene.

    If you're expecting truth in "journalism", the Daily News is the last place you should go.

    Are you sure? I always ranked it above the National Enquirer.

    I'd rather trust the Enquirer, to be honest.

    The story here has incredulous comments: http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/20...of-weapons-led-to-new-jersey-students-arrest/
    The drawing?
    A replica weapon, perhaps? So much for his magnet school for engineering and environmental science.
    No mention from the PD as to what chemicals--which when mixed could explode!!!---were found at the home. Sounds like it was all those electronic parts that caused concern:

    Someone needs to encourage the mom to respond with something other than AFS.
    I hope the boy was out of juvenile lock-up before Christmas.

    How does a picture of a glove with flames coming out of it give probable cause to search a home?

    Art work used to be protected speech under the 1st amendment. :(

    Picture of flaming boxing gloves = probable cause.

    Been this way for SECONDS, Mike, where you been?...
