Looks like MIT's standards have dropped precipitously if they're admitting idiots like this nowadays. :dang:

MIT student arrested with fake bomb

By GLEN JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

BOSTON - An MIT student wearing what turned out to be a fake bomb was arrested at gunpoint Friday at Logan International Airport and later claimed it was artwork, officials said.

Star Simpson, 19, had a computer circuit board and wiring in plain view over a black hooded sweatshirt she was wearing, said State Police Maj. Scott Pare, the commanding officer at the airport.

"She said that it was a piece of art and she wanted to stand out on career day," Pare said at a news conference. "She claims that it was just art, and that she was proud of the art and she wanted to display it."

Simpson was charged with disturbing the peace and possessing a hoax device. A not guilty plea was entered for her and she was released on $750 bail.

Any relation to Homer?

Being part of the 'arrested at gunpoint' experience will probably be the main feature of her coursework!

I am surprised that she did not spend 30 days in jail. Art my but. It was a stupid immature prank.

You have to wonder how people can be THAT stupid, especially with what is going on in our world. She could have ended up shot or even worse - dead. Holy Cow!!!!

And if one of those cops blew out the back of her skull, you would have her family and certain groups screaming up a storm and throwing out lawsuits.....
