Ahmed Mohamed swept up, 'hoax bomb' charges swept away as Irving teen's story floods social media
Irving’s police chief announced Wednesday that charges won’t be filed against Ahmed Mohamed, the MacArthur High School freshman arrested Monday after he brought what school officials and police described as a “hoax bomb” on campus.
At a joint press conference with Irving ISD, Chief Larry Boyd said the device — confiscated by an English teacher despite the teen’s insistence that it was a clock — was “certainly suspicious in nature.”
School officers questioned Ahmed about the device and why Ahmed had brought it to school. Boyd said Ahmed was then handcuffed “for his safety and for the safety of the officers” and taken to a juvenile detention center. He was later released to his parents, Boyd said.
“The follow-up investigation revealed the device apparently was a homemade experiment, and there’s no evidence to support the perception he intended to create alarm,” Boyd said, describing the incident as a “naive accident.”http://dallasmorningviewsblog.dallasnews.com/files/2015/09/Posingdig.jpghttps://i.onthe.io/vllkyt4u9j9ott8lp.46e60831.jpg

It's hilarisad that Jindal used this story to point out how the real prejudice is actually against white christians.
The boy's father seems to be a political activist of sorts. Elhassan Mohamed is an attention seeking media whore. He is a self-proclaimed sheik (whose religions acumens are up for debate) who ran for president of Sudan twice (from Dallas), despite it being obviously pointless - as Sudan is a dictatorship.
In 2010, he was the only Muslim to respond to Pastor Terry Jones' trial of the Koran (In which it was burnt) by accepting an open invitation offered to all Muslims to go to the church and defend it.
This makes it a little more murky. The police claimed the boy was unresponsive to their questioning. It can't be proven - but I wonder if the Mohamed family expected and wanted the troubles.
Big shit show though
Whether the kid had ominous motives can't be proven so who are we to judge. However we can lay judgement on the US government and media for stereotyping a minority as a threat to western culture. If it wasn't for these two guilty parties then we wouldn't brand Dfg as a bomb wearing camel jockey from the sandy plains of allah's garden.
Seriously that kid is trolling people for sure.
