Boy, Not Making Bombs, Arrested for Having Things Cops Think Could Blow Up (And For Drawings That Spooked a Teacher)

 

 

” The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is publicizing an interesting little story out of Galloway Township in New Jersey:

When a 16-year-old New Jersey boy doodled in his notebook on Tuesday, December 18, he probably didn’t expect to be arrested by the end of the day. However, when school officials saw the sketches, which they state appeared to be of weapons, and the boy “demonstrated behavior that caused them to be concerned,” the police were called.

 

At no point in time did the boy threaten the school, school officials, or his classmates. He cooperated fully with authorities, and a search of the school itself found nothing dangerous…. “

 

 

Nothing dangerous was found , he cooperated and made no threats , yet …

 

 

” A subsequent search of the boy’s home led to his arrest because they found several electronic parts and chemicals. He was charged with the possession of an explosive device and put in juvenile detention. “

 

 

The boy attends a school that is known for it’s ;

 

 

“engineering and environmental sciences and specializing in hands-on learning”

Sayeth the Police Chief : 

 

“There was no indication he was making a bomb, or using a bomb or detonating a bomb,”

 

 

Sayeth the Principal :

 

“thankful that we had a staff member that (saw something that) caused her some concern, and that she had the sense to report it to school officials. These are things that teachers receive training on all the time.”

 

 

Good Lord what lessons are we teaching our children ? Government mandated stupidity and group think . God help us .
