Someone with the same YouTube account also posted comments under videos about the Columbine shootings and a bomb at a Detroit school.
The attorney for the 14-year-old boy arrested last Monday in connection with an explosives case in Canton's River Green subdivision told WSB-TV that YouTube instructional videos about pipe bombs came from the suspect's account. "It's my understanding that this is my client's Internet account," Ashleigh Merchant, the suspect's attorney, told WSB-TV's Mark Winne. "I think it's a huge problem." Eight months ago, someone with the same YouTube account posted this comment under a video about one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history, the 1999 Columbine High School massacre: I am 15 and i make pipe bombs and other s---.

And the attorney in the case waived a scheduled detention hearing today, Shannon Wallace said.
Based on the evidence she's seen so far, Cherokee County District Attorney-Elect Shannon Wallace said this afternoon that "there's been nothing to show" that two 14-year-old boys accused of making what appeared to be pipe bombs will be charged as adults. "The juveniles will be handled as juveniles," she said. It was Monday that the Canton Police Department received a tip about suspected explosive devices at 119 Woodbury Lane, which is in the city's River Green subdivision.

Brian and Sandra Howell were arrested Tuesday. They've since been released.
The situation at a River Green home where authorities suspect that a 14-year-old boy allegedly made "extremely dangerous" explosive devices was "dysfunctional," Canton Police Chief Bob Merchant said this afternoon. "When you have juveniles engaging in this type of behavior, and you have parents or adults that elect, for whatever reason, not to get involved, that's not a normal situation," he said. That, Merchant said, is why police arrested Brian and Sandra Howell on Tuesday night, charged each of them with six counts of possession and manufacture of a destructive device as well as two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and turned over a female juvenile in the home to the Department of Children and Family Services. "Our …
