The two students are still being charged, but the feds have declined to take the case. Turns out the two bomb hits in the lexus were false positives. (Shocker)
It is now up to the ADA to prosecute. But as far as I know the two are still being held with $1 million dollar bond.
Evidence indicates that they were in fact trying to shoot a music video. Which may in fact be the dumbest idea two seemingly smart kids have ever had.
But if people went to jail for being dumb, lets just say I'd spend a lot less time being pissed off.
CMU students are starting to get organized and have a facebook group put together. (Free Anand and Sudeep!) But no one has been able to get in touch with either of their parents. And as far as we know no hearings have been scheduled to get their bond reduced.
UPDATE: Anand and Sudeep were released on recognizance. I hope the rest of their legal issues are speedily resolved!
