How to Kill a Scientist: a response to the Florida science felony

I actually can't believe this ridiculous situation in Florida.

I'm not saying to hand out medals to every mad scientist on the event of their first contained explosion (although I could get behind that), but there are better ways of handling this than with felony charges and expulsion.

UPDATE 2013-05-16: They've dropped the charges against her. Thank goodness. She'll be continuing high school elsewhere, which I'm counting as a good thing for her.
