    Again why wasn't the school evacuated. If it was a suspected bomb they should have followed correct procedures instead of doing their own thing
    While I don't agree on your over-heroifying of the boy, this is a good point. If he has a bomb...then more action should've been taken than just, *deep authoritarian voice* "give me that, son. And come with me." There should've been armed soldiers jumping out of helicopters and white people running left and right with their heads on fire.

    Because they never thought it was a bomb. That was why he was being charged with making a hoax bomb.

    Please don't twist words. The first news of this said they thought he had an actual bomb. It became "hoax bomb" in recent days...

    when they realised it wasn't a bomb.

    He was never charged for having a hoax bomb. They legit thought it was a bomb.

    The whole scare mistake thing is justifiable considering it may have looked suspicious.


    However it is abhorrent that the school is still suspending him after finding out he is innocent and it was simply a clock!

    Yes anyone who has seen a picture of the clock would probably think it was most likely a bomb after first seeing the picture.

    I assume he has been suspended because of his bad behaviour the teacher asked for it and said no if the student had given it to the teacher and explained it all to them then the Police wouldn't have had to come and arrest him.I would say that the Police really could charge him for wasting Police time as his disobedient actions lead to their time being wasted.

    The boy should have obeyed the teacher, you should always obey your teacher unless it is something absolutely ridiculous and illegal(like if the teacher asked them to perform sex or something) and the boy didn't so he should be punished and the clock being in the classroom wasn't authorised by the teacher to be in the classroom the boy should have been focusing on the class he was doing instead of bringing in a clock.

    More information about the case was released as time went on. That is how all these news reports work. They take what little information they have then try and fill in what they assume to be the blanks.

    The clock wasn't even the aspiring bomb makers' own creation. He just dismantled a clock, put all the parts in a pencil box and claimed it was his own.

    What exactly is a "hoax bomb"?

    A PCB with wires soldered onto it and a digital display? What if I take the housing off say, my toaster and walk with it down the street, is that a "hoax bomb"?

    Social media says #IStandWithAhmed after the schoolboy was arrested for bringing homemade clock to school

    Apparently the clock was mistaken for a bomb. This is just disgusting.
    Islamophobia worsening every day.Arresting a 14-year-old Muslim boy who under any other name would be considered a genius.#IStandWithAhmed
    Its dd because it makes you think, did they truly believe it was a bomb? They didnt call the bomb squad the rang the police, ahmed and the 'bomb' remained in the office until the police came, the 'bomb' then went with the police IN THE POLICE CAR, they didnt evacuate the school like they woul have had there been a bomb... Just makes you think.

    It depends on perceived intent. If you walked down the street in a Jewish neighbourhood or stood in a shopping centre and started chanting 'Allahu akbar' whilst holding it, then yes, people will almost certainly think you are wired up as a suicide bomber.

    When you get arrested after the armed police have disabled you and it's found to be nothing more than a toaster, you would most likely be charged with making and carrying a hoax bomb.

    And did the kid go to a Jewish school and chant?
    No. He went to school (a public place) carrying something that some people perceived looked like a potential bomb.

    The numerous terrorist attacks of the last few years have programmed people to be very wary of anything remotely suspicious.

    The media have whipped up a frenzy and the lefties have jumped on the PC bandwagon with a certain element of the 'victim' mentality Muslim community shouting racism.

    Like i said before these right wingers dont care about facts its about fuelling hatred. This kid got arrested for making a clock and dylan roof after killing i think 8 people got given a burger when he was arrested. Thats the justice system in america. If you are muslim or black anything you do is considerd a potential crime but if you are white its mental issuses and lone wolfs

    dyan roof will spend rest of his life in a cell, probably before being executed, i doubt that is the fate for this muslim boy ( unless he joins an islamist groups that i)

    in both cases its either white supremacist ideology or islamic ideology that fuels hatred

    This is not about justice being served this is about a seperate bill of rights for muslims and blacks and whites and christians in america. Imagine it wasnt dylan roof imagine it was a muslim that killed people in a church and got given a burger when he got arrested imagine the reaction then.
