Where’s the media?
A student at Pine View High School in Utah brought a bomb to the school this week.
He attempted to detonate it, but when it let off smoke the school evacuated and sent kids home. Authorities said the bomb “would have caused significant injury or death.”
NEW: @sgcitypubsafety is charging the suspects “failed attempt to detonate a homemade explosive” inside Pine View High School yesterday with:
76-10-402: Manufacture, possession, sale, use or attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction prohibited.

From NBC News:
The backpack at Pine View High School was found by a student who reported to a teacher that smoke was coming out of it shortly after noon Monday, said St. George Police Capt. Giles said.
The teen who was arrested was attending class at the school and items were seized from his home “that were consistent with the material used to build the device placed at Pine View,” St. George police said.
KUTV reported the authorities received a warrant and searched the teen’s home where they “found materials consistent with the materials to build the device.” They also found that the suspect researched ISIS and promoted the terrorist group.
During his interview, the suspect admitted that he took down the American flag at Hurricane High School and replaced it with an ISIS flag. He confessed to ISIS graffiti on the school, too.

So where is the outrage over this in the media?
Weird that an ISIS- supporting kid who brought a homemade bomb into his school to cause massive loss of life isn’t getting much media attention-
Almost like the media’s urgent national discussion on school safety was really just about banning guns-https://t.co/Wr0zEE3G3s

After Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people at a high school in Parkland, FL, the media immediately jumped on gun control and has paraded survivors to push the gun control narrative. They’ve allowed kids to spew nonsense about guns that isn’t true while ignoring the horrific incompetence of local authorities. The Democrat Party has even used these kids in fundraising emails and Twitter verified their accounts right away.
But this kid, who has not been identified since he’s a juvenile, hasn’t been received wall to wall media coverage. Like Buck said…it’s almost as if the media (and the left) used the tragedy in Florida to push their gun banning agenda.
I cannot wait to hear their excuses, even though their silence is just as deafening.DONATE
