Utah Student Arrested After Bomb Found

Police said a homemade explosive device was the item discovered in a backpack at Pine View High School Monday, that forced the evacuation of the school. Police said if the device had detonated, it would have caused significant injury or death. Police have a suspect in custody.


During the interview with investigators, the suspect admitted to taking the American flag down and replacing it with an ISIS flag at Hurricane High School.

The suspect also admitted to spray painting "ISIS IS COMI" on the school that same morning, police say.


3 years in the making?


I can't figure out what 'COMI' stands for.

COMI is what comes after COVFEFE.

COMI = "coming" before he had a chance to finish his vandalism?

There's a Hurricane, Utah? That must have been one hell of a storm.

That would make sense...

Did a good guy with a bomb stop him? Maybe teachers and college profs should be given bombs to protect students. How does the NBA (National Bomb Association) feel about proposed legislation limiting access to bombs?

A student smells and sees a smoking backpack and calls the police. A bomb squad and K9 show up and disable the device. The suspect's name and picture are not published since he is a juvenile and enrolled in a local ROTC program. Probably another first generation child of an immigrant from a war torn region, completely destroyed by the US. A really lousy bomb maker, if it smoked long enough for the bomb squad to arrive without detonating, he had no idea how to make a bomb and contrary to the article, probably would not have done much damage. But this kid's life is over.

Goddamn right wing nutcases. We need, as a planet, to kill the concept of conservatism before the troglodytes kill us.

"We need, as a planet, to kill the concept of conservatism"

I agree we have issues where conservatism is harming us....significantly at times.

but "killing the concept of conservatism?"

Liberals need to shut -------- like you up.

"Liberals need to shut -------- like you up"

spoken like a true authoritarian

Modern "conservatism" is a farce.

What the "right" has today is a cult of obedience

-spoken like a true authoritarian

whatever, drunken savage.

I believe in liberalism in most places but conservatism has it's place.

If that's lost on you well then......too bad.

This is Fake News!

Trump said he'd have ISIS defeated within 30 days of taking office!

Sorry there is a giant ----- where your brain should be, but if you didn't want to face the truth, your idiotic fellows shouldn't have begged us to end "political correctness". If you don't like the way you are treated as a result of your hate-fueled conservatism, maybe just educate yourself until you realize how ------- stupid conservatism is. By definition, it is the side of losers.

Well, it's been 4 days. The fact that not a single news agency has managed to publish the identity of the bomber means one of two things:

1. The bomber was a rich white kid and the protection of his identity by the police and community (including all his/her fellow students, who undoubtedly know who he/she is...circumventing police efforts to hide the identity of a minor) is due to a huge white privilege conspiracy that might very well involve magic underwear and the media just hasn't learned it despite resolute efforts to that end.

2. The media has the bomber's name, but he/she has more than one relative named Muhammed and continuing to cover this story and/or divulge the bomber's name would derail the vastly more progressively satisfying gun banning efforts.

The kid is an amateur.
In high school my buddies and I made lots of bombs that went boom. We used to borrow stuff from the chemistry lab. In those days they keep all sorts of fun stuff on hand. I still don't know how we avoided injury.
The most fun was making pong bombs. Match heads stuffed into a ping pong ball with gun powder. We would make dozens of them and launch them with pocket rocket slingshots. They would hit the ground, bonce up 10ish feet before exploding and spraying the area with 200 burning match heads. It was poor mans white phosphorous. That combined with potassium nitrate, sulfur and sugar smoke grenades made Halloween a riot causing mayhem and running from the cops through clouds of smoke.

Ahhh the joyous folly of youth.

Fake Poser Conservatives need to shut dingdongs like you up.
