Tech bomber turns himself in
Well, it turns out that the bombs at Tech were not the actions of a terrorist group, but instead of a freshman engineering student. Shocking. Imagine this sort of thing going on at a college campus.
According to a Tech email:
A Georgia Tech student has indicated his involvement in the Oct. 10 incident involving a crude bottle explosive found on east campus.
The incident was not in any way the work of a “terrorist” group.The student turned himself in to Georgia Tech police the morning of Oct. 11 and confessed to his involvement. He’s facing charges for possession of a destructive device (a felony under Georgia Law) and reckless conduct (a misdemenor under Georgia law).
The freshman engineering student has been temporarily suspended pending a student judiciary ruling.
Poor kid. It probably sounded like such a “totally awesome dude” idea at the time.
