The kid was irresponsible period. There is no way that contraption comes anywhere close to resembling a clock. Police and school authorities should be praised for erring on the side of caution. Why risk childrens lives just to stay on the right side of political correctness?

What does a kids homemade clock look like?

The school took a couple of hours to call the cops over a supposed bomb scare. Are you actually defending this?

Kids are, by definition, irresponsible. If the adults in charge act like idiots, how are the kids supposed to learn to be responsible?

If they actually thought it was a bomb, they would have evacuated the school.

Yet it was a clock. Also, it was an LCD display hooked up to a circuit board and a power plug inside of a fucking case. That's exactly what a digital clock is. Were you expecting a little bird to pop out of a case full of gears? This isn't the 40s.

It's not about being politically correct, it's about being intelligent.

Are you that completely naive as to think this kid was not aware of what he was doing? He likely did it for attention and was not aware of political consequences, but he knew his clock would look like a bomb. That is how 14 year olds think and act.
