The criminalization of our children continues

Arrested, expelled and who knows what's gonna happen to her. But chances are, her life is ruined. Why? A science experiment with a water bottle and the cap blew off.

But she's just an unimportant person, not of any rich family or anything so who cares, right?

What's gonna happen when YOUR kid makes a mistake?


May 1, 2013 |



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

16-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.”

The ones we made we not "little." If you hav eone og off that close to you, it would be dirt nap time. It all boils down to knowing WTF you're doing. If a guy were to make the same thing today, it would likely be 10 years in the joint. IWe jused F4 power but some other guys messed with nitroglycerin, I wasn't even that crazy.

Well, let's encourage 16 year old kids to experiment with that sort of thing at school.

I'm really not sure why everyone seems to be ignoring this aspect.

They just need to put up a sign--
"Kids--if you are going to mix chemicals to try to make a small explosion, please do so safely."

Putting some mentos in a bottle of coke isn't exactly the same thing as mixing a bunch of random chemicals to see what would happen, you ridiculous person.

Seems like most people on here are saying--a 16 yr-old tried to create a small explosion at school. No one got hurt, so what's the big deal?

you think that she deserved expulsion and being arrested? wow

I admittedly don't know EXACTLY what happened. But, if a high school kid is purposefully mixing something that they think will cause a small explosion, I think you have to deal with that pretty harshly.

This isn't a case of someone biting a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun. Someone was purposefully trying to make an explosion at school. So this was a small one. Next time someone is goofing around with shit they don't fully understand and it is a lot worse. Yeah, I kind of think there needs to be a zero-tolerance policy of trying to cause explosions at school.

ya but it's a ****ing science project!

ruin a young persons life over that. That shit is ****ed up. This isn't some explosion at school, its a ****ing science project that had a little "pop" sound.

If this was some sinister thing she was doing intentionally to scare people, then yes, I'd agree. But that's not the case.

Sure as hell shouldn't involve the authorities. I hope you are just trolling.

So, you're taking this line from the alternet.org story: "A Florida teen with an exemplary record is facing federal charges after conducting what a classmate calls “a science project gone bad.”"

You're taking that line and assuming that this was some sort of assigned science project? For real? Are the kids smoking in the bathrooms just doing "science project" as well?

So, the standard on school explosions should be--as long as it is pretty small, it's ok? And untrained kids should be able to know exactly what will happen when they mix their chemicals, right?

There's nothing in the story that justifies the kid's punishment. I feel sorry for the kids today. I'm not even that old, yet most of the shit my group of friends and I were doing when we were kids would either be criminal or at least seriously frowned upon today.

The police state is ramping up, and it's partly because of the incredibly ****ing stupid and lazy pricks who defend horrible ideas like "no tolerance" rules and overreactive policing.

well that's the information I have. Future information can always change opinions.

But if it is the case, like the article says, then it's ****ing wrong. If the article is bullshit, I will never look at another one of their news articles.
