    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.

    LOL. There's already a thread about this.

    Why is it disgusting that it was mistaken for a bomb?

    USA doesn't mess around with security. That is common knowledge.

    Once they suspect something could be a threat, they act accordingly.

    Even if it is something as small as a pencil case or in this case, a handmade clock, they act accordingly.

    Are they paranoid? Perhaps

    Would they rather be paranoid than have parents mourning the lives of their children? Definitely

    Thank god action was taken considering the threat ISIS pose on the world, well done to the authorities. Safety of locals is paramount and must always be addressed.

    I'm not going to say whether it was right or wrong.

    What I will say is although it can seem as if it was racially motivated, I'd rather this happen and everyone is safe than have them ignore it and a whole classroom of kids get blown to pieces (whether the person is muslim; christian; hindu; sikh; black; white; asian or other).

    America is pretty tight on security and maybe he should (like any other kid regardless of race etc) have warned someone, like oh I'm going to make a clock could you check it out. Rather than randomly bringing these things to school. If it will cause this type of reaction they should let their teachers know first - Again regardless of race etc - because I don't want any excitable people on this site jumping down my throat.

    ISIS and other terror groups have released footage of them using kids as young as him and even younger to carry out terror attacks.

    You do realise Islamic terrorists are sickening right? They use children to carry bombs so it is required that we take action against this both for the safety of the locals and the kids. ISIS want you to think they look innocent, it is how they think.
