It’s officially too stupid to live.
Texas (!) school district arrests kid for building a clock that they call a “hoax bomb”, even though he never, ever called it that. Indeed, other than the idiots at his school district and the Irvine TX police department, nobody ever did:
Ahmed Mohamed — who makes his own radios and repairs his own go-kart — hoped to impress his teachers when he brought a homemade clock to MacArthur High on Monday.
Instead, the school phoned police about Ahmed’s circuit-stuffed pencil case.
So the 14-year-old missed the student council meeting and took a trip in handcuffs to juvenile detention. His clock now sits in an evidence room. Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb — though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that it’s a clock.
In the meantime, Ahmed’s been suspended, his father is upset and the Council on American-Islamic Relations is once again eyeing claims of Islamophobia in Irving.
And you know what? CAIR is right, and I hope the Mohammeds sue that idiot district back to the Stone Age.
I do, in fact, have some experience with brain-dead school administrators making things up from whole cloth – and my hatred for them burns like a million suns.
Mr. Mohammed: if you need airtime to raise money to sue your scumbag district, let me know. I’m happy to help.
Popehat has a much better piece on the subject.
