As the writer of the article says, props to the boy for kluging a solution. Go creativity. "Improvise, adapt and overcome," Steve M, the blogger commenting on the news article writes with approval.
The boy was suspended for two days, may face further suspension and penalties for ... having a weapon in school. Even though the sheriff's department acknowledges no criminal intent.
