Cal State Northridge student charged in possession of explosive materials, having gun on campus

A Cal State Northridge student was charged Thursday with possessing explosive materials and having a firearm on campus.

David Everson, 22, was charged with two felonies in connection with the case, according to a copy of a criminal complaint filed in San Fernando Superior Court.

The complaint alleges that Everson had the explosive materials with the intent of making a destructive device and that he possessed the weapon while he was on campus. The items were allegedly found in his dorm room, according to authorities.

Records show that Everson was arrested Wednesday, booked into Twin Towers County Jail and was being held in lieu of $150,000 bail.

Wow! Scary!

I though the laws would prevent this? He disobeyed the law? Hmmmmm.

This article says that the explosives were "allegedly" found in his room.

Does that mean that the author of this article feels that the authorities "planted" these things on him? That's what I get out of this "over abused" term "allegedly"

@Scat: Writers use "allegedly" because you cannot say anything definite until someone is convicted of a crime. Think of it as this, if the media said that someone "raped" another person instead saying "allegedly raped," the accused would already be characterized by a crime that has not been tried in a court of law. This is why they use "allegedly."
