iPod Declared 'Criminal Tool' in Hacking Case

An Ohio high school student has been charged with possession of a criminal tool. Not too surprising, eh? The criminal tool is actually an iPod. The student is accused of hacking school computers and downloading sensitive school personnel and student files. Sure, charge him with unauthorized use of a computer, but possession of a criminal tool—give me a break. Pardon my liberal view of this situation, but please don't let this be the day when any kind of hard drive or flash-based piece of hardware is banned from schools because of the school's inability to manage a network or computer lab properly.
