    Default Teen faces federal charges for bad science project

    No one was hurt, nothing was damaged, but 16-year-old faces federal charges for "science project gone bad"

    This article originally appeared on AlterNet.


    A Florida teen with an exemplary record is facing federal charges after conducting what a classmate calls “a science project gone bad.”

    Sixteen-year-old Kiera Wilmot is accused of mixing housing chemicals in a small water bottle at Bartow High School, causing the cap to fly off and produce a bit of smoke. The experiment was conducted outdoors, no property was damaged, and no one was injured.

    Not long after Wilmot’s experiment, authorities arrested her and charged her with “possession/discharge of a weapon on school property and discharging a destructive device,” according to WTSP-TV. The school district proceeded to expel Wilmot for handling the “dangerous weapon,” also known as a water bottle. She will have to complete her high school education through an expulsion program.

    Friends and staffers, including the school principal, came to Wilmot’s defense, telling media that authorities arrested an upstanding student who meant no harm.
    “She is a good kid,” principal Ron Richard told WTSP-TV. “She has never been in trouble before. Ever.”

    “She just wanted to see what happened to those chemicals in the bottle,” a classmate added. “Now, look what happened.”

    Polk County Schools stands by its decision to expel Wilmot, asserting in a statement, “there are consequences to actions,” and calling Wilmot’s experiment a “serious breach of conduct.”

    I'm sure a simple conversation with the student explaining why she shouldn't have conducted her experiment on school property would be much more effective than federal charges. Hoping her future doesn't get ruined by this crap.

    That picture of her cracked me up. That has to be the most innocent looking 16-year old I have ever seen.

    Anyway, my son's teacher has conducted crazier experiments in his 2nd grade classroom.

    how on earth can a science experiment be classified as a "weapon" or a "destructive device"? this has got to be a joke, right?

    How did this even become common knowledge? Did someone's mommy report this kid cause their snowflake got scared by some smoke?

    ^^ from another article

    Like Trayvon's tale, Kiera's story still has many unanswered questions. This much is clear: Wilmot's trouble began April 22, when the assistant principal at Bartow High heard a small explosion. When he ventured outside, he found the teen near a gazebo on campus next to a plastic bottle. Wilmot admitted she'd mixed toilet bowl cleaner with aluminum foil — a "science fair experiment" her friend had suggested, she said.

    Wilmot, a good student with a clean record, was immediately expelled for having a "bomb" on campus. What's more, a local prosecutor named Tammy Glotfelty OK'ed police to arrest the girl on felony charges of possession of a weapon on school grounds and discharging a destructive device — even though her principal admitted she wasn't trying to hurt anyone and had made a "bad choice."
