We Need Better Bomb Control: Student Influenced by ISIS Brought Bomb to School

We Need Better Bomb Control: Student Influenced by ISIS Brought Bomb to School

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.”

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?

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.

    Pretty simple – If it bleeds, it leads. Nobody bleed.

    It will receive publicity. But considering that it didn’t work is germane. See, in Parkland 17 people died and many others were wounded.

    The Boston Marathon got as much publicity as Parkland. But you just keep sulking over how unfair it all is. You might wail about this failed bomb that the student tried to build. Had he bought, begged, borrowed or stolen a gun there probably would have been casualties. See the difference. No? Try a little harder.

    BTW, high explosives are controlled. Years ago when some people advocated for putting ‘taggants’ in explosives, it was the same crowd that objected. If you want to restart the movement to tag explosives, I doubt the MSM would fight you. Get going, TIGER.

      This bomber, as with almost all school attackers is a FLAMING INCOMPETENT. Let me make that crystal clear. He, like almost ALL school attackers is a FLAMING INCOMPETENT.

      Cruz fired ~100 rounds and only hit 29 people and only killed 17. This while using a rifle and facing NO OPPOSITION. He shot one student five, that’s right FIVE times, and still didn’t kill him.

      In Aurora, James Holmes fired 65 rounds from a 5.56mm rifle, 6 from a 12 ga shotgun and 5 from a .40S&W caliber pistol managed to hit 58 people and only killed 12.

      At Virginia Tech, Sueng-Hui Cho fired 174 rounds, killing 28 people and wounding 17, with a 9mm handgun

      You people have got to wake up here. All of these attacks could have been stopped with decent access control and on-site security. You can’t stop people from acquiring firearms, explosives flammable liquids and motor vehicles. You can harden a facility to make it nearly impossible to introduce those instruments into such a facility. So, far, the perpetrators of these attacks have proven to be rather incompetent. That can change. And, when the next school shooting incident includes pictures of 100+ body bags being carried out of the school, perhaps people will wake up.

Is no one paying attention to their children?

Columbine was a failed bombing. The firearms were intended as a “mop up” to the destruction of the school with a massive explosion. The template for popularity was redirected to firearms with the failed bombing and hidebound police tactics that never anticipated an “active shooter”. The wink and nod from media that firearms killings got one big press coverage sealed the deal.

If there is any way to exploit this incident politically, the Dems/MSM will do it. Standby. There are working through the calculations.

If the bomb had killed people, the MSM would be blaming Republicans and right-wing “hate” blogs or whatever. Not enough suffering to exploit here.

    Are you kidding? The Founding Fathers could never have imagined that much power for a computer. The state-of-the-art in computing at the time of the Revolution was Pascal’s Calculator… that’s what people should be limited to using today under the 1A.

      It’s high past time we end the deadly trade in backpacks. Especially assault backpacks.

The responses at this site amply illustrate why these things continue to happen. NOBODY CARES that who knows how many children could have lost their lives, if the student bomber had not bee as incompetent as Nikolas Cruz.

Schools in this country have NO SECURITY, unless the school is in an urban area and experiences significant gang related violence. THEN we see security checkpoints and armed security officers. Merry-go-rounds, monkey bars and other “dangerous” playground equipment is removed from schools, but no effort is made to keep guns and bombs out. Priorities????

The school boards, involved in every school shooting since Columbine, 19 years ago, are directly responsible for these incidents. Why? Because they have no, or insufficient, security to prevent them. Either the school system does not want to spend the money for adequate security or they, and the parents, don’t want the schools to resemble “prisons”. There is always an excuse for refusing to take any meaningful steps to protect the chil’ren.

As for the media only being concerned about removing firearms from the hands of the general public, of course that is all that they care about. Bombs are already illegal and not only would further laws not make any difference, but the fact that a proscribed device was used serves to weaken the argument for further restrictions on firearms.

Until people actually demand that the people, who have custody of their children for most of the day, take some steps to provide for the safety of their charges; then these things will continue.

Good thing they didn’t notice it was a wannabe bomb until after it started smoking. That way they could misidentify it as an ordinary wannabe fire and clear the hell out.

If they’d realized it was a bomb they’d have put the school on “lockdown” … and kept everyone inside with it.

Our major systemic problem isn’t bombs or even wacky Muslims. It’s the fantasy that officialdom at any level will make things better.

And remember the Dallas kid who brought the ‘alarm clock’ to school and the fits that the libs had when the school actually did something.

    And remember how Barry Obama feted him and his family – almost licking the soles of their boots!

The MSM,and their political arm – the DNC, are reacting to this attempted school attack. They are demanding more gun control in order to protect the children.
