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.
“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.’”

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

.... 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?
