Who among us hasn’t — just once in our lives — put a couple of things in a test tube, a bottle, or our mouths and wondered what might happen?
Occasionally, this might have difficult consequences. But rarely does someone try to arrest us for it.
16-year-old Kiera Wilmot wasn’t so lucky.
Short Version: A 16-year-old high school student creates an “explosion” that doesn’t even generate the force of a firecracker, and gets expelled for discharging a weapon on school grounds. She’s now also facing possible felony charges for what her own principal considers to be a simple science experiment gone wrong. Anybody think the school district is out of line?
