Clock Boy Family in Court AGAIN! Their Demands are Outrageous!!!

“Clock Boy” made international headlines in 2015 after he was falsely accused of bringing a bomb to school. His family threatened to sue, but ultimately, they left the country… and now, they’ve received some bad news about their potential lawsuits.

The story of “Clock Boy” quickly went viral: a 14-year-old Muslim boy, Ahmed Mohamed, brought a homemade clock to school to show to his engineering teacher. Unfortunately, the clock resembled a bomb, and when an alarm on the clock went off in another class, the teacher confiscated it, and he was sent to the principal’s office. He was then questioned by police for over an hour, before being handcuffed, taken to a juvenile detention facility, fingerprinted, and had a mug shot taken. Only after all of this was he finally allowed to see his parents.

Irving Police Chief Larry Boyd defended these actions, saying, “It was a very suspicious device. We live in an age where you can’t take things like that to school. Of course we’ve seen across our country horrific things happen. We have to err on the side of caution.” The charges against Mohamed were eventually dropped, but he was still suspended from school for three days. The family eventually moved to Qatar, but not before he got to meet Barack Obama at the White House, participate in Google’s science fair, and be featured in Time’s “Most Influential Teens of 2015” list.

This was an idiotic episode from the start. The device the kid built could have been used as a bomb's timing device, but so could the windup or battery powered clock on anybody's nightstand. Duh.

I feel the "over reaction" was warranted. If they suspend a child for biting a pop tart to look like a firearm why wouldn't they exercise on the side of extreme caution especially with this person's nationality. I don't intend to sound profiling but facts are facts and statistics are statistics.

8:03 Am I agree, if a kid can be tossed out of school for eating a pastry, then this kid should have it far worse... Besides they did it for exactly what they are doing right now, to sue someone...

Interesting the kid got a free education in a different country paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood almost immediately after incident. The entire family moved to the Country only to come back with in 6 months..
