They were all freakin morons from the teacher to the cops to the mother....

 "The teacher summoned the school resource officer, who with other county lawmen were given the OK by the boy's mother to search the family home."

 Hell every young boy when I was growing up made something that  could blow up either with match heads or a little bit of back powder.   As Ayn rand said:

There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.   -- (paraphrased: Page 406 of  Ayn Rand's, Atlas Shrugged )

Just another case of a pimple being turned into a mountain by those in authority lacking common sense.
