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.”

A nerdy brown kid named Ahmed Mohamed built a clock and took it to school to show off. The school shit itself in fear and the poor boy was handcuffed, arrested then released.

This is the kind of fear that our society has now. It's fucked. I can understand the police's POV as well though, a brown kid named Ahmed might very well have brought a bomb to school.

Obama has invited him to the white house and Zuckerburg to facebook.

    Why? To make social amends for a predjudice virus one of these idiots had created and the other had freely distributed. If the shit didn't hit the fan on social media neither of these arseholes would have given this kid the time of day. It's good to see the schools image copped a kick in the balls for it as well.

  • Been posting random memes regarding this, it's just hilarious as fuck though.
  • Someone bought him a trip to space camp, and he's fielding invites to all sorts of silicon valley companies. Wired has offered him a tour of the offices, and he's been invited to present at Maker Faire New York.

    It's hilarisad that Jindal used this story to point out how the real prejudice is actually against white christians.

    Things are not what they seem here. It seems increasingly likely it was a staged media stunt.

    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.

    The best way to get around a discrimination accusation is to deny & if that fails justify it by discrediting the victim. Just another weapons of mass destruction scenario. In other words falsafied for the sake of a means.
  • His dad plotting the whole thing makes sense. I mean sure no one should be afraid of a fucking clock but considering the bomb threats and shootings, it would be idiotic not to take it seriously.

    I agree it is murky. Something weird going on there. Seems staged. The thing that gets me, is that it looks like a quintessential suitcase bomb minus a charge. The damn thing started beeping in the middle of class. I think the teacher did the right thing but the cop that arrested him should never have put him in cuffs. I think they may have thought it was a bomb hoax though since the school was never evacuated. That normally gets you arrested anyway.

    Big shit show though

    Ok, I can go with this ^ (respect)

    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. :p

    US tax payers wouldn't need to pay anything if US politics didn't stereotype the poor old sand nigga as the skum against all that is US society..Then again! US politics require some sort of race as a scapegoat, simply to justify their need for financial and political control. But! To be fair, many governments from other nations would do exactly the same if the opportunity was there. That's basically how political ethics works. 5 million dollars and applying prejudiced fear mongering is but a small price to pay for the benifits of wealth and power. It's a sad reality, but it's reality none the less. :(
