This bombing attempt in a US school in Utah should have been splashed across the news. The amount of murdered and maimed would have been more than some of the worst school shootings. However, the media largely ignored this miraculous turn of events. Can it be because they want to ignore reporting on ISIS inspired attacks?
A still unnamed teenager brought a homemade explosive to Pine View High School in St. George inside of his backpack. Thankfully a concerned classmate noticed smoke coming out of the backpack. He notified faculty about the suspicious backpack.
“Based on our investigation we can confirm this was a failed attempt to detonate a homemade explosive at the school,” the St. George Police Department said. They added that after examining the explosive device “bomb squad members indicated that if it had detonated; the device had the potential to cause significant injury or death.”
The goal – detonate a homemade bomb and spread shrapnel to hurt as many people as possible. It would have injured or killed as many people as possible in the vicinity of the backpack.
“I saw them looking through the bag, and then they picked it up and ran it outside,” said Tavien Hancock, a student at Pine View High School. “It’s pretty scary knowing that I was around a bomb and walked by a bomb three times — it’s going to make me more aware of my surroundings.”
The Police Report
“I think it is a shock to all of us that something like this has happened in one of our schools,” said Washington County School District spokesman Steve Dunham.
The Police department noted that “it was also determined that the male had been researching information and expressing interest in ISIS and promoting the organization.”
A warrant served at the teenager’s home and items were found consistent with the materials used to build the device.
Washington County School District spokesman Steve Dunham said: “I think it is a shock to all of us that something like this has happened in one of our schools.”
The police department hailed the students who notified faculty of the smoking backpack.
“Their immediate action played a large role in this incident ending with no injuries,” the St. George Police Department said.
Why bury the story?
At first, reports came out on the bombing attempt. However, since then, the whole issue disappeared.
The fact that an ISIS inspired attack is taking place in America should worry all Americans. Is this a one-time thing? Are other kids being influenced to plan similar terror attacks?
US lawmakers are already familiar with the usage of social media by ISIS and other Islamic terror organizations to recruit, inspire and train new terrorists. We have a recent report about this scary reality here.
Repeat Offender in the name of ISIS
Did you know that the teenager who allegedly brought a homemade bomb to a high school in Utah is reportedly the same teenager who flew an ISIS flag at a separate high school in Utah? He also wrote on the school walls “ISIS is coming”.
Don’t you think this should be an issue all of America is talking about?
