Boy’s Science Project Mistaken for Bomb, Boy Remanded for “Counseling”

by Pro-male/Anti-feminist Tech on January 18, 2010

The San Diego Union Tribune reports that an 11 year old boy’s personal science project was mistaken for a bomb.  An 11 year old boy who attends Millennial Tech Magnet Middle School in San Diego was working on a personal science project to build some type of motion detector.  He made the mistake of bringing it to his school.  A vice principal at Millennial Tech saw the boy showing the device to other students at the school, and believing it was a bomb, IED, or some other type of harmful device put the school under lockdown and brought in the San Diego Police.  Later the school was evacuated, and the device was scanned and determined to be harmless.  The boy’s house and garage was checked by fire officials to make sure there was nothing harmful or explosive.  Obviously, there wasn’t.  While there will be no prosecutions (since no actual laws were violated), authorities are still “recommending” that both the boy and the parents “get counseling” because the boy supposedly violated some school policy.

One aspect of female supremacism is prosecuting a war on boys.  This case is a stellar example of that.  It’s safe to say that if an 11 year old girl brought a personal science project to school, it would be held as proof of “female empowerment”.  However, since a boy did it, the police were called in, his house was searched for chemicals and explosive materials, and he (along with his parents) was remanded for “counseling” since they couldn’t find anything.

It’s even worse than it seems, because this is a tech magnet school.  By definition a tech magnet school will have students who are interested in technology, engineering, and science.  Trying to build electronic devices such a motion detector, as this boy did, should be considered typical – and even praiseworthy – for a student in such a school.  Instead, any outside interest in science, engineering, and technology by boys is quashed by school authorities.  If you wonder why the scientific, technological, and engineering fields are moving to Asia, just consider that what female supremacism is doing to boys is a huge part of it.  Of course, with the export of feminism, Asia’s leadership in science, engineering, and technology will be short-lived, because boys will likely be treated with the same distrust and hatred in Asia as they are here in the near future.

Pull all boys out of school. State sanctioned homeschool program can be finished by an 11 year old. Highschool diploma out of the way. Then enroll them in university of Phoenix, or just do MIT online for free. Better learning environment for an innovative young boy anyway.

Boy’s a goddamn genius.

But as ever, feminist society is uncomfortable with boys achieving things above their station. And will do everything they can to pervert his achievement and talents, out of pure jealousy and spite.

Bringing in the bomb squad sounds more like general paranoia rather than feminism bullshit. But I can’t for the life of me understand why the fuck he should be “counseled”. Bunch of idiots the lot of ‘em.

Also, building a motion detector at 11 is quite impressive (they aren’t hard to build, but at that age it’s quite an achievement)

Other types of witch hunt/burning were quite sensible as it was a way to get rid of women with ideas working against the society.

We might see the Aztecs as cruel and morally inferior for sacrificing virgins – but is was somathing that made their society work.

We cannot regard our own society as the highest form of humans living together as we basicly are destroying our own future/offspring.

Thank you, Snark.

This is just an example of “zero tolerence” and fear in action, not female supremacy. I don’t really get why the post had to stretch like that. Girls have been arrested for butterknives too. A few years ago it made the news that a six year old girl was acting up like kids that age seem to do, and because he was scared of liability if something happened to a child, the cop handcuffed her.

I’m sick of the illiteracy among our educators, and I’m sick of their fuckups being taken out on innocent children. Those who say the Vice Principal needs a reprimand and to deliver an apology are right. And whoever thinks the boy and his family needs “counseling” should be put in counseling themselves!

Yeah, if I was his parents, I would be suing my way into building little Edison his own personal high tech, well equipped laboratory, and yanking him out of school completely.

Correspondence/Homeschooling… and no university. Period.

Children are highly educable until they reach puberty… and then they are highly resistant to education until adulthood – around their mid-twenties. And then they become highly educable again. Only a small portion will absorb education the whole way through.

In fact, somewhere around the 40′s or 50′s, Sir Richard Livingstone – who was a contemporary of Dewey’s, recommended that children only be taught the three r’s in their youth, and then put to work during their teenage years, and then for them to return to school again when they are adults… basically outlawing “the teenager” and forcing them to grow, and then using resources to educate them again later on when it was far more effective to do so.

If this kid is already building shit like this at 11 years old, probably the best thing for him would be to stay the hell out of the Stalinist Gulag known as our education system.

A kid like this will become on expert on that kind of stuff regardless. Especially after his parents sue him into a private laboratory – oh the emotional distress!!!

My father earned a PhD in chemistry. Worked a few crappy jobs, go laid off a few times, and got sick of it. Got an MS in computer science. Worked some more crappy jobs, without getting laid off because at that point (the 70′s) that work was more secure and not offshored, but he got treated like crap and was miserable.

This was all during the Cold War, largely before the modern feminist-driven lifestyle became the norm, and before globalization. This kind of work has never had any prestige and not much respect. In the 50′s the kid wouldn’t have been considered a threat, but he would have been considered a goofy, harmless nerd.

All prestige and honor in the US go to sports. A boy has to be taught sports, and he has to understand that his proficiency at sports will determine his peer-group status throughout life.

Public schools are horrendous places. The combination of a medium-security prison social milieu and left-wing social engineering make it the worst possible place for an intelligent boy. This at a science magnet, for God’s sake?!

The San Diego area may be one of the few left were engineering is a valid career. But they will yet crush the spirits of boys there and even the little remaining defense engineering in the US will be offshored.

The War on Boys in schools is real, though it mostly is not consciously conducted. It includes ignoring boys real learning problems, forcing the boys and girls into the same classes and then teaching only to the girls style of learning, and lastly, sexual harrasment rules which tend to be used against males more often and lead to things such as six year olds being suspended for kissing on the playground. In addition you have an environment of mostly female teachers, some of whom are good educators and love kids boys and girls, and others who are misandrist and often have their bigotry go unnoticed or unaddressed.

That being said, too many girls have made the news for violating “zero tolerance’ policies (aka cover your ass policies) over the years for me to think that if a girl brought in what looked like a bomb that she wouldn’t be reprimanded as well.

And yes, though I’m mad at eductors for always making the children pay in these types of cases , the fact is the public school system is so messed up due to strict liability torts and trying to please public expectations/political grandstanding by politicians and elected SB officials that oftern the job of the teachers and admins in a particular school is made nearly impossible. They are handicapped in so many ways. No real discipline for violent students and one can’t expel too much lest one’s school run afoul of rules that pretend that all kids and socioeeconomic backgrounds must acheieve exactly the same results. No tracking – many schools have gotten rid of gifted programs. No control over the content of what one teaches, sometimes limited or no control over HOW one teaches – yet all sorts of people think we should hold teachers accountable for how well their students do, but so many people fail to realize that in order to do that we have to let them teach without interference.

System is FUBAR all around. If you have a kid in public school, I recommend minimum – on your own- do some homeschooling. Bribe the kid, whatever, but please don’t leave him/her at the total mercies of the schools curricula. Add to it. And make sure that they get good grades esp in the science and math classes.

I agree with the points made, but I feel we’re not getting the whole picture if we ignore the “terror paranoia” angle.

Our society is so completely off the deep end over terrorism. And to be fair, plenty of right-wing conservatives and tea partiers have been stoking that fear to resounding applause for a decade now. Often using the same tactics that feminists use. And San Diego is not exactly San Francisco politically.

It’s fair to say feminist ideology was a part of this incident. But the larger elephant in the room is the irrational terrorism paranoia.

True. Anyone remember how they were sending SWAT teams into schools just about every month in the early years of the last decade?

However, part of the paranoia about terrorists and school shootings is pretty obviously tied to a general distrust and hatred of boys who don’t fit in. I’d even tie in bullying of these boys to feminism — I remember from my years in grade school that the girls often decided which boys were going to get picked on.

All good points. I actually graduated high school a few months before Columbine shootings and was dismayed as schools across the country decided 1984 was an instruction manual instead of a warning.

What I’m trying to say is that “You reap what you sow” applies to politically-useful conservative terror paranoia as much as it does politically-useful liberal misandry.

I hope his parents pull him out of school.

Sir Richard was spot-on by the way.
The German school system allows for this, and it’s one of it’s few strengths. For example, you can go to Realschule and complete an apprenticeship parallel to finishing high school (you attend school on certain days and work on others) at 16. Then you are free to work as a Journeyman or go on and get your Master certificate and then start your own business. Or you can go back to school, study up and complete the Abitur (highest school-leaving exam), and then go on to college or university. Most of the men I know who are successful engineers, tradesmen, and craftsmen, took this route. It’s very popular, and is the reason why things run so well in Germany: the excellent practical training.

But now they are trying to do away with this system and force everyone to stay in school learning Latin until they’re 18, in the Gymnasium. Those who drop out… who cares about them? There’s a lot of pressure from international agencies and businesses to adopt American-style educational systems, for uniformity.

@Snark

He built a motion detector at age 11?……Boy’s a goddamn genius.

Undoubtedly a smart kid, but not necessarily a genius – just a smart boy with the ability to follow instructions.

We have become a cargo cult society, where so few people have any understanding of technology that when an 11 year old boy assembles a simple electronic device from components it’s seen as some kind of black magic.

What the hell happened here? A member of staff at a Tech Magnet School saw an object with wires being carried by an 11 year old pupil at the school and their first thought was “bomb!” Unbelievable!

Btw, of 35 members of staff at Millenial Tech Middle School, only 11 are men, and one of them is the night custodian. The Principal is a woman. Also, somebody’s embarrassed about this as there is no Vice Principal listed in the staff directory.

Related subject – it’s easy to modify a security system-type motion detector to operate as a USB device that can be connected to a computer and used to turn on a webcam. Simple way to covertly video your sexual encounters should you be so inclined.

The boy should be home schooled. Or sent to a private school which is not insane.

The parents should sue the school for the emotional stress and damages inflicted upon their son. For an 11 year old something like this could literally destroy his willingness to try new things and innovate. It could be career and life changing. Their lawyer should be merciless.

The vice principal didn’t have the common sense or confidence to walk up to an 11 year old and ask what he was showing to friends, then make a judgement as to the truthfulness of the boy based on past history and the science experiment sitting right there. He or she (I’m curious which) should be fired immediately and barred from ever working in education again.

Apparently nobody on the rest of the staff had enough common sense to defuse the situation. The entire faculty at that school needs counseling and training. They all have developed an unhealthy and unbalanced fear of an event which statistically is less likely than one of them winning Lotto.

Apparently the fire department has nobody who is able to tell a child’s science project from a bomb. The need a top down review and training before they face a situation where being unable to discern a bomb gets someone killed.

After obtaining the device which was obviously harmless, and speaking to the boy who explained everything, the fire department searched the boy’s home. I’m sure they did this without a warrant, and they had no justifiable probable cause. Therefore every fireman or police officer who entered that home needs to be subject to a Title 42 USC Section 1983 civil rights lawsuit. They need to be fired, and they need to lose their homes and retirements in the suit. (A government agent is personally liable for depriving you of your rights under Section 1983.)

What a world we’ve created.

I agree that this whole thing has been blown out of proportion. I mean, I understand if the vice principal didn’t know what the object was at first sight, but since I’m sure that the poor boy told her that it was a project, why wasn’t his teacher, who assigned the project in the first place, contacted to confirm whatever the boy said?

Looking at this case it is really not hard to see why no female dominated societies have survived: if boys are banned from tinkering with spears because they’re dangerous, eventually somebody from a less restricted group comes over the horizon with bows and arrows, and if they’re banned from tinkering with bows and arrows, eventually somebody from a less restricted group comes over the horizon with muskets, and if they’re banned from tinkering with muskets… etc. etc.

Actually, what they were doing was preparing dinner, in an unusually solemn fashion. The Aztecs were cannibals, and given the problematic nature of deciding who was going to eat and who was going to get eaten, such decisions were given to the priests.

One of the reasons that a relatively small band of Spaniards were able to overwhelm armies who greatly outnumbered them was because the Aztecs viewed “war” as a form of “hunting.” They did not kill enemies in order to “win”, they captured them in order to eat them. They could simply not conceive of being so “wasteful of food” as to leave thousands of pounds of perfectly good human tenderloin rotting on a battlefield. The Spaniards just slaughtered them left and right because they had an entirely different concept of what they were doing than the Aztecs did.

Allright you don’t get it.

Different societies over time developed various modes of functioning to keep it going.

Sometimes we learn about something in other societies, which we see as cruel. Something that they didn’t regard as cruel due to their way of thinking.

We have a way regarding our ‘worldview’ as the only right one and others ‘view’ as wrong.

Think of it this way; Moral and Ethics is the ideas of the winners. The ideas of those whose society have success. As a society becomes wealthier it developes a philosophy and moral that suits their society.
So, winning and riches comes first – then comes morals and ethics.

Read John Bagot Glubb

So sacrificing virgins worked for the Aztecs – for whatever reason!
Witchburning kept mideval europe stable (and oppressed) to some extent, but was later abandoned.

Future historians might tell that the western world went under because of expensive wars in order to spread feminism and undermining their own societies by emasculating boys due to the same feminism.

So what works for another society, works whether or not we feel good about it!

Was that better?

Nowadays people are really concerned with being busy. I used to be like that, too. Being busy has become a status symbol. Everyone wants to seem to be working more and harder than everybody else.

Schools seem to follow the same rule: the more the better. But really there’s a limited amount of school that can be beneficial and everything beyond that is a waste of time. If the time is going to be wasted, leave it up to the kids to decide how to waste it. Maybe they’ll spend the time doing something brilliant. Maybe not. But it can hardly be worse than sitting in a classroom, filling in worksheets.
The truth is that schools have become babysitters, rather than places of learning. But the mentality is spilling over into homeschooling. Some of the parents are trying to fill every single hour of their kids day with “productive activities”. We limit schooly-type activities and housework to the morning. The afternoon is do-whatever time. Right now mine are building forts with the couch cushions. How is that not productive? :-)

The truth is that schools have become babysitters, rather than places of learning.

And that’s how feminism is partially responsible for this sort of thing. Because, to improve on what I’ve said before, feminism is the theory and practice of prioritizing women’s interests ahead of everyone else’s, including the best interests of children (and of institutionalizing that prioritization).

But the prioritization of children’s interests ahead of those of their parents is critically necessary to good parenting. So we end up with the crude, heavy-handed, blunt force actions of the State stepping in as a poor substitute parent.

Why? Because feminists must attack and discredit the prioritization of children’s interests ahead of those of women in general. And, since feminists cannot allow men cannot to have a superior status over women in any area, they must consequentially also attack and discredit not just fathering in pariticular but male childrearing in general.

“Yeah, if I was his parents, I would be suing my way into building little Edison his own personal high tech, well equipped laboratory, and yanking him out of school completely. ”

I notice Edison’s name coming up on here every once in awhile. Edison and Tesla were in a major disagreement about how to deliver electricity. Edison was by far a better promoter of himself, but as far as intellect, critical thought and ability to find solutions from ‘outside the box’, Tesla was far superior to Edison. His unknown projects were stolen by the feds shortly after his death, technology that by today’s standards is still advanced with the exception of projects primarily built upon Tesla’s genius. Tesla was written out of contemporary history books because J P Morgan thought he was dangerous–to profit. At Wardencliffe, he was building a transmitter to provide free electricity to everyone. People like Tesla and Royal Raymond Rife were among the most brilliant men of the 20th century. Tesla invented the radio, not Marconi.

The military and Nasa had an interested in two child prodigies who are still living. David Adair with his hot fusion rocket and Dr. Patrick Flanagan. Why are these men relevant to this topic? David Adair built advanced rockets as a teen, which could be considered dangerous. If he had been doing it while in the current public school system, he would have been kicked out and probably locked up. Edison’s intellectual envy had him electrocuting elephants using D/C current. What irony that feminists and all women spew their hatred and vitriol on devices invented and improved on by men. Confronted with this irony which SEEMS to be lost on them, their response is that ‘patriarchy’ suppressed and oppressed them, the men would not allow them to discover nor invent anything. I still don’t see them coming up with any truly innovative—-anything! If men were to turn their backs on them, or if a disease meant for they ‘Y’ wiped men out and the power grids stopped functioning, no more viable sperm at the sperm banks. Then what would happen. What would happen if the ‘Y’ pathogen killed all males except 5 percent? What do you think would happen? Would most women become lesbians? Would they initiate a breeding program with those 5 percent? Would they go into hiding? Shave their legs, Wear wigs and become cros-dressers?

Her BF is an asperger’s genius who intentionally ‘dumbed himself down’. Initially I though it ws about friends. It wasn’t. She fits the exact type to be praised and pampered by everyone in the same ‘alternative HS, simply because she’s an anomaly. The entire school has rolled out the red carpet, throwing roses wherever she walks–the school is staff/teachers/diagnosticians treat her like a queen because she’s so valuable–the chance to prove there’s no difference, that intelligence is the same and men and women are the same, i.e. gender construct. The truth of the matter is that her BF is considerably more intelligent and knowledgeable–but when he was in school he was suppressed/oppressed by the feminist staff and loads of manginas–they don’t want brilliant males. He simply gave up–any display of his intellect was met with derision. He could be anything, a theoretical physicist, chemical engineer, anything. This is the BS boys must endure in the PS. They used the drugs on him for years, until he decide that he wouldn’t take anything–a potential Tesla/Einstein/Rife who will reach his potential because of feminist men and women. When they talk with him, he insults them in such a brilliant manner that it takes them awhile to even figure it out. I wonder how man of these ‘men’ are married, go home to do their kitchen duties while saying “yes, dear,, no dear, right away, dear, I’m sorry that I blocked your vision from the TV while you’re watching Oprah and Dr. Phil. Oh, I really like that Dr. Phil dear, he tells the truth about all men, yes dear I’ll shutup while you’re watching TV, sorry, let me go buy you some flowers and clean the house for you since I know you’ve had a difficult day shopping and watching TV. Oh, you’ve been having sex with the neighbor? That’s ok, dear, you need to explore your emotional nature to be and prove that you’re a powerful woman, ok dear, I’ll shutup (slowly rises and walks on eggshells. I say a commercial on HULU the other day, where a ‘man’ was eating some fast food and dripped some catsup on the tablecloth. His two sons started telling him, “now your in trouble, mom always finds out. As he put the tablecloth into the washer, he told his son’s that the product he was using was his “get out of jail free card”. Mom came home and asked him “what’s that” on his face upon which he got a terrified look and shook his eyes ‘no’ at his sons (manginas in training). How can this ‘man’ redeem himself? She asks “what’s that’ he tells her it’s none of her business, but get back in your car and go get me some more of that fast food. She starts nagging him, he tells her to hurry up, she says no, he says ok, I’ll go, if you want anything you’ll have to go yourself later, and walks off. I wish I could start writing some of those damn commercials.

Thank you David B., for writing this. I used to be “that brilliant girl” and my husband was “that dumb guy”, so that story hits really close to home.

We’re probably similarly intelligent (we don’t know his IQ score), but his intelligence is more concentrated in the creative/ingenuity sphere. I’m really good at practical, every-day things: managing finances, organizing the household, keeping track of the schedule, cooking and baking, etc. I keep things running, make sure everything’s neat and clean, ensure regular meals, baths, and sleep. I can talk rings around him (and most men I know), but most of what I’m saying is an analysis and regurgitation of things that have already been said. If I shut up (yeah, I know you guys would love that, but I won’t indulge you) and merely handed out my reference material, the same point would still be communicated.

But he’s a true creative genius. He might be absent-minded, but his thoughts are on a completely different plane from mine. When we discuss politics, I’m the one largely repeating good ideas I’ve read on how we can tweak things, whereas he’s the one proposing a whole new system. It’s a bit like C.S. Lewis versus Tolkein: one rewrites an old story in a new environment, while the other creates a whole new world.

Both types of intelligence are important, but they serve different purposes. One is good for keeping things running, while the other is vital for the advancement of civilization and the creation of beauty (philosophy, the arts, religion, etc.) Seeing and recognizing that difference in men and women is one of the things that convinced me that Genesis is right. Men and women, joined in marriage, are the ultimate team. Like two sides of the same coin: one to keep things running at home and the other to do Big Work and think Big Ideas.

School promotes the analytical type of intelligence (and doesn’t even do that very well), while denigrating the creative type. Both types are important and valuable, and each should be trained to reach his full potential.

Ragnar,

That’s a little better. It’s just that a few of the points seem a little disjointed and not connecting well.

So are you saying that our present society shouldn’t make the same mistake as that of ancient societies in thinking that certain practices (like feminism and emasculating males in our case) are beneficial? That societies of the future will look back to this day and age and look at feminism and male emasculation the same way we look at witch buring and virgin sacrifices?

So what works for another society, works whether or not we feel good about it!

So how does this relate to our society in regards to feminism and the emasculation of males? Are you saying that they work for our society?

Well said :D I completely agree.

I am entirely unsurprised. It’s incidents like this that make me laugh whenever I hear feminists complaining that girls are discouraged from going into the sciences. Across the country, girls are practically begged to get involved in mathematics and science, while boys like this are treated with suspicion, bullied, and marginalized.

One thing many of the intelligent commenters have missed in the chain of events is that the idiot Vice-Principal called the cops, yes, but the cops actually took the “threat” seriously, as opposed to telling the teacher “Why don’t you go over to him and ask him what it is?”, or “is there a battery connected to it?”.

Instead they sent out their macho-named “Metro Arson Strike Team”. Of course, they had no choice, because (1) they wanted to cover their butts in case there was anything to this incident, and (2) well, once you have funding for a “Metro Arson Strike Team”, you’d better find something for them to do!

Similar deal to the “balloon boy” saga – every public agency fell over themselves in the name of protection, when a little knowledge of physics (no way could thing that carry a boy’s weight), the courage to take decisive action, and a BB gun to shoot the thing down would have saved everyone a lot of trouble.
