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.
Of course, this comes from a city, Irving, TX, with a mayor who has been an outspoken critic of Islam.
The worst quote comes at the end of the article
It's official: the terrorists have won.He’s vowed never to take an invention to school again.
