    That's exactly what it was -- the zero-tolerance rules in action.

    Kids have been suspended for chewing their chicken nuggets into the shape of a handgun, so it's not unlikely that a clock that looked as it did would send a teacher into hysteria.

    What a system, where anyone can sue over anything. Only benefits lawyers and leeches.

    Correct ... you're not a man ... you're (merely a subject of ) a law.

    Bomb boy deliberately made something that could look like a bomb to an untrained civilian. He did it to make a political point.

    I wish him the best in his life. Unless he radicalized. Then I wish him a bullet to the head as an enemy of all humanity. Hostis humani gneris. That was the Roman solution to pirates.

    One shouldn't construct something which looks like a bomb and take this device to a school. That should be the lesson learned here.
