'Clock terror bomb' suspect, Ahmed-Mohamed
Yes, you read that headline correctly; motivated to impress his engineering teacher, 14 year old Ahmed Mohamed from Irving, Texas, made a clock by wiring a circuit board and power supply to a digital display and carried it to school inside a case with a tiger hologram on the front. His teacher thought Ahmed's clock was "really nice", but advised him not to show it to anyone else.

Ahmed kept the clock in his bag during English class but when the alarm kept going off his teacher demanded to see it. "It looks like a bomb" said the teacher. "It doesn't look like a bomb to me" replied Ahmed. The teacher kept the clock and soon the school principal and a police officer pulled Ahmed out of class and taken to a room where he was interrogated by 5 officers and arrested for a 'bomb hoax'.

During his interrogation in the school room Ahmed said an officer he'd never seen before leaned back in his chair and remarked: "Yup. That's who I thought it was."

"They were like, 'So you tried to make a bomb?'" Ahmed said.

"I told them no, I was trying to make a clock."

"He said, 'It looks like a movie bomb to me.'"

Ahmed's clock and tablet were seized and he was then taken in handcuffs to a juvenile detention center where he was fingerprinted and had his mugshot taken.

Despite admitting that Ahmed had gone around telling everyone that he had made a clock, not a bomb, officers still didn't believe they were getting the whole story.
Hey Ahmed, you're not fooling anyone with that NASA T-shirt. Irving cops have your number...TERRORIST!
"We have no information that he claimed it was a bomb," police spokesman James McLellan said. "He kept maintaining it was a clock, but there was no broader explanation."

Asked what broader explanation the boy could have given, the spokesman explained: "It could reasonably be mistaken as a device if left in a bathroom or under a car. The concern was, what was this thing built for?" [Ed: Newsflash dumbass! It's a CLOCK!]

Being a smart young boy, Ahmed appears to have understood the crux of the matter: "They thought, 'how could someone like this build something like this unless it's a threat?" He also learned another important lesson: his treatment by Irving police made him "feel like he wasn't human".

Throughout the multi-hour ordeal, Ahmed's parents were not informed of his whereabouts (a serious violation of his civil rights) until the police decided he was not a terrorist and allowed him to go home. The local bomb disposal squad was allegedly not required, although police say they may still charge him with making a 'hoax bomb'.

Welcome to the hystericized USA, where 15 years of bogus terrorism propaganda and multiple invasions of foreign nations to 'fight' said bogus terrorism, is all that was needed to create the conditions where children (especially the brown-skinned type) can no longer engage in innocent science projects without running the risk of becoming a terrorist suspect.
