Detroit: Boy Charged With Throwing Drano Bomb In School

Via Click on Detroit
DETROIT -- The mother of a student at Phoenix Multicultural School on Detroit's southwest side is defending her son he was charged with discharging a so-called "Drano bomb" inside the building.

The explosive device, made of household cleaning chemicals, went off in the hallway of the building at about 8:30 a.m., sending fumes into the air, said a school official. School officials said no students were injured because they were all inside classrooms. However, a seventh-grader, who did not want to be identified, said the explosion on the third floor knocked her down and injured her.

"The boom went off and I flew into a locker. I tried to block my face but it hit my arm instead," she said.

"The device itself could have caused a lot of damage if there were a lot of children around when the device actually went off. Those types of bombs are very, very unstable," said Inspector Don Johnson with the DPD Bomb Squad.
I was curious if there was info on the net explaining how to make one. Yup, complete with videos.
