Drawings Of Weapons Led To New Jersey Student

13 posts in this topic

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) ? Every school in America is on edge this week, but behavior by a student at Cedar Creek High School Tuesday had school officials on alert.

The Superintendent of the Greater Egg Harbor Regional High School District said around 2 pm Tuesday, a 16 year old student demonstrated behavior that caused concern.

A teacher noticed drawings of what appeared to be weapons in his notebook. School officials made the decision to contact authorities.

Police removed the 16-year-old boy from Cedar Creek High School in Galloway Township Tuesday afternoon after school officials became concerned about his behavior.

The student was taken to the Galloway Township Police Department.

Police then searched the boy?s home on the 300 block of East Spencer Lane and found several electronic parts and several types of chemicals that when mixed together, could cause an explosion, police say.

The unidentified teen was charged with possession of a weapon an explosive device and the juvenile was placed in Harbor Fields.

The Superintendent, Dr. Steven Ciccariello put a phone message out to parents Wednesday morning.

?This is a perfect example of a teacher implementing her training. She saw drawings that appeared disturbing to her and alerted school officials,? he told Eyewitness News.

The New Jersey Education Association said teachers are now routinely trained to watch for these kinds of warning signs.

?Without the proper training, things can slip through the cracks,? said NJEA Spokesperson Kathy Coulibali, ?If somebody feels insecure about whether or not is this really something that should be reported, we don?t want that kind of gray area.?

As a precaution, bomb-sniffing dogs swept the school, but nothing was found. Authorities say that students and teachers at the school were never in any danger nor were any threats made.

The student was placed in Haborfields Juvenile Detention Center.

Aside from the two guns in my room I have about 7 discarded cell phones and some cleaning chemicals wires and a clock all usable for making an IED this is ridiculous. The phones are phones I stopped using and through in a box the chemicals I use to clean my room. The alarm clock well that should be obvious. Everyone in their house has the necessary supplies to make bombs this is just stupid. Maybe he was a big COD fan and drew some of the guns.

I use to draw guns all the time in school and haven't killed anyone. As already mentioned, you can make bombs or dangerous mixtures out of pretty much anything. Huge overreaction.

Dangerous chemicals they probably found. Tide, Bleach and Windex. This is an explosive device when possessed by an individual drawing guns. For normal people they are just cleaning solutions.

You aren't going to get arrested for possessing tide, bleach, and windex. I'm sure he had some chemicals that were a bit more exotic.

Maybe.... but the news piece does say "chemicals when mixed together COULD cause an explosion". So they arent even definate.

I often make bomb in the toilet. Usually after I had food high in fibre.

It's easy to say anything against the Police or the Government, or the teacher, when one of those 20 children that died in the shootings were not your kids.

I wonder if they over react much and then claim they did a wonderful job of keeping everyone safe.
