H/T: Jihad Watch: “Clearly Utah is not diverse enough yet, but it is, with this smoking backpack at Pine View High School, rapidly approaching an acceptable level of diversity.”
“Student who left explosives had posted ISIS propaganda, police say,”

ST. GEORGE — St. George police continued Tuesday to investigate why a student allegedly left a backpack with explosive materials in a high school and has been posting ISIS propaganda.
The student, whose name and age were not released Tuesday, was arrested Monday after a backpack with explosives was found in the commons area of Pine View High School, the area where students eat lunch.
Alert students spotted the backpack was “smoking” and immediately contacted school administrators and the school resource officer, according to police.
“From that initial investigation, it was determined that a homemade explosive device was inside the backpack,” according to a prepared statement Tuesday from police. “After examining the device, bomb squad members indicted that if it had detonated, the device had the potential to cause significant injury or death.”
