    So now it's a "replica of a time bomb"

    It is also worth noting that if a person(s) launches enough attention getting stunts, they run the risk that somebody will eventually over react to a particular stunt. And that is exactly what happened between "Clock Boy", his father and the school.
    Ahh, so you think there's a series of bomb stunts now?

    I wonder how the TSA would react to that suitcase.

    Where's the explosive, or something that looks like an explosive?
    To the untrained eye, it looked like a bomb.

    Yeah, that's what they thought it was, and reasonably so. Who takes apart a clock and fits it into a suitcase?
    If you feel a need to "reinterpret" the Constitution, you must know that what you want to do is unconstitutional.

    They've confiscated car keys in the past so I'm not going to expect they'd react well to a deadly clock.

    As an airline pilot, if you saw that in your cabin, what would YOU think?

    Answer honestly.

    Don't bring up pop-tart kid: he was suspended for repeatedly disrupting class even after other disciplinary actions.
