DRY RUN? Muslim* student tosses a bomb bag that sets off a minor explosion into a New Hampshire classroom.
*I must assume he is a Muslim because of the name, ‘Ismael.’
MANCHESTER, N.H. — New Hampshire police said an 18-year-old high school student is facing charges that he threw what is being described as a “bomb bag” into a classroom.
Manchester police said Ismael Bang, 18, threw a bag into the classroom at the city’s West High School that made noise and began to expand before erupting in a minor explosion. No one was hurt.
Police described the device as a novelty item containing sodium bicarbonate and citric acid that was designed for outside use only. Police said that just before the incident, the school resource officer had escorted Bang off school property. Police said Bang was found with an additional “bomb bag.”
Bang was charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. (That’s all?) WMUR H/T JAMIE
