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.

    Poor kid?! What about the Tech custodian who picked up the first bottle? He has a pretty thankless job to begin with without little budding “genuises” placing random explosives all over the place.
