Thanks to everyone who signed a petition, donated and spread the word.
The 16-year-old high school student who was arrested after causing a small explosion on school grounds will not be charged with a crime.

How often does this happen to white students? And will the scientific community step up? She's clearly got the kind of curiosity we highly value in our students. Can we make sure it won't go to waste?

I keep telling people, we do not have a justice system. We have a legal system, that the wheels fell off of years ago.
