We all know the reason why the kid got famous. Its not the clock, It is because he was profiled by his skin colour, his name and his religion.


This is an assumption, I personally believe it likely that the Teacher at least would have responded the same no matter what kid the buzzing box full of wires came from.

I wholeheartedly agree after reading about the family wanting to be famous by the sounds of it. "Look its a kardashian with a clock!!!"... Fame whore

“Because for the last 30 years, it’s been one culture that has been blowing snip up over and over again,” Maher responded.




“What if it had been a bomb?” Maher asked. “So the teacher is supposed to see something that looks like a bomb and go, ‘oh wait, this might just be my white privilege talking’? ‘I don’t want to be politically incorrect, so I’ll just let it go.’”


Bill Maher defends arrest of Ahmed Mohamed

That would be funny if the topic wasn't so serious.

Even if - as the blatant right wing blogger claims - its an old clock transferred into a pencil case - why does that make the story a hoax?

The kid was still arrested and detained over a clock.

What I see here are people introducing strawmen arguments....the kid didn't invent it... his father this/that...etc.etc.etc...

But the story here is a 14 year old kid getting arrested and detained by Police and being accused of creating a fake bomb - and who then didn't believe his explanation and repeatedly tried to make him say it was something else ostensibly because he has brown skin and is a muslim.

You can invent all the strawmen arguments you want. It doesn't make what happened here any less relevant.

As I've said. If they truly thought it was a bomb, why didn't the bomb squad show up? Why wasn't the school evacuated? Why was he handcuffed and kept in the same room with the "bomb"?

This certainly wasn't treated like it was a real bomb.

My take is he did this thinking the teacher would think he was talented. And as it goes in our universe, many people fell for it. Just another fake person who will get an edge through deception.

If this is what is considered talent and skill today, we are doomed.

You all know why he still may be charged. INTENT that is the whole of the law

it was not a school project

after it was deemed not an explosive device then they are still left with the question of intent

DO NOT MISTAKE it is illegal to bring a hoax device to school

That is what I have been saying. He knew this device would look suspicious and he did it anyway. He said he modified something to make it less suspicious, but he knew before he ever brought it to school that it was iffy.

His father is a muslim activist even running for president of Sudan from his home in Dallas! Publicity stunt??? Perhaps a way of garnering international attention for himself. After all, when the President of the United States of America weighs in on it, headlines will blast all over the world.

Stinks to high heaven. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama and the father have had a conversation in recent months.

Jesus christ stop with this tripe!
Does it feel good twisting a kids words? He said that he figured people might think it was, not that he meant it to be.
He didn't think it was suspicious.

He never said he knew it looked like a bomb or meant to make it look like a bomb.

That is the only way you could show the intent of a hoax bomb is that he meant for it to look as so.

BS. He did say it. He said he thought people might think it suspicious, and he brought it anyway. I firmly believe there is more to this than meets the eye. But, hey! Think what you will and so will I. I stand by my last post, btw.

It is exactly what I said it was a couple of days ago right here on ATS:
It's a clock

I'm glad to see someone else authenticate my opinion as I have been away camping and out of signal since I last posted.

Cheers!

He said he didn't want to make it look suspicious

Period, end of story that is what he said.

he knew after first period that he could get in trouble if he showed it

yet he continued to carry it around after being told not to

that shows clear intentions along with his utube confessions and his friends accounts

.... No he did not.
He has no confessions, only people that try and twist his words.

The kid brought something to show his engineer teacher who said he might not want to show other people.
He didn't show his teacher, she heard it and asked to see it.

Then decided it looked like a bomb.

Where is the intent that he wanted to create a hoax bomb?

It almost looked like he tore a clock apart and could't figure out how to put it back together neatly, and brought it into school to have someone help him. The thing is a mess, and it isn't even remotely innovative or "science-y". He didn't do anything most people that an twist a screw driver could do.

"I can take a clock apart...and kind of put it back together, yay me!"

Still, they certainly didn't treat it like a real bomb. If they claim they were afraid it was a bomb, the bomb specialists would have showed up. We've had entire schools evacuated for a suspicious backpack, with robot bomb sniffing gizmos showing up. None of that happened here.

I am 100 mi away from the event and will not be able to know for sure beyond what I am telling you and that is the police view it differently than you and eye. The case is not closed and we will soon hear much more.

no internet communication is safe from the feds when dealing with such...

them police do not let it go when one tries to make fools of them

Simply making the claim he only was showing it to the teacher is not enough because it was not a school project and nobody ever advised him to do such in any manner.

in the end he and his daddy will be in jail

if you have not noticed they take this stuff very serious these days

so serious they now have the right to invade every aspect of their lives

Oh no! The world has ended! Who cares?

The boy was arrested for doing nothing wrong. And you sit here and trash talk him some more..

What if he got the schematics on line?

He was arrested because of his name. And his name alone. Who cares if he didn't make it. Only idiots would care.

Taking a few minutes to look inside will always give us the real answers.


I don't advise this should you find yourself too near a tossed grenade. Unless the answer you are looking for is to the question, "what happens to a body that is too near a live explosive device with a short detonation period."

It was almost instantly treated as a bomb scare, which it really looked like at the time. Now that we have an actual picture of the clock, the actual story, and the history of the boy's father, I'm going to play arm chair jury member and call it a bomb scare.

The kid was evasive during questioning. The police probably figured they couldn't make a case. I'm sure they didn't think they were mistaken, though.
