    Student draws picture of a glove with flames coming out of it
    Teacher sees it and freaks out, notifies administration who calls police
    Police come and take kid out of school and search his home
    Find chemicals and electronics IF mixed together COULD make an explosive device
    Kid gets arrested for making a bomb and spends a week (including Christmas) in juvenile detention center.
    Police send bomb sniffing dogs to check out school
    Nothing found
    Police say the chemicals were standard household items that were NOT mixed in anyway to make a weapon
    Police and school say student made no threats and no one was in danger
    Police and school say they did the right thing and better to be safe than sorry.

    Not a big fan of litigation, but this family should sue the fuck out of every possible target here just to make others think twice about taking such asinine actions.

    He's lucky he didn't doodle a gun, he would have gone to jail for life.

    Jesus christ all me and my friends ever doodled back in grade school were war images. We had Vietnam on the TV news every night. Planes being shot down, planes dropping bombs. WTF, we all would have been doing hard time in 1969
