Sorry - but the worst label you could put on him is a designer - and having seen the Apple 1 I think he did a better job than Jobs and 'Woz when they were much older so get a grip.
If I cam across someone of his age doing what he did - i'd stop and happily give him some time and encouragement. There's every possibility that he could turn out something fantastic in his future - as long as the US education system does not beat his desire to tinker out of him. You really have to question the intellect and ability of the teachers who escalated this, and the police who thought handcuffs were justified.
Or has the USA reached such a low point that a balloon with the word 'bomb' written on it would spook everyone?
America - the rest of the world is ROTFLMAO over this
