Sadly in the USA, levels of paranoia about terrorism have reached new heights as Ahmed Mohamed can attest to.
Ahmed, a 14 year old student at MacArthur High in Irving, took a homemade clock to school to show his teachers.
Unfortunately, instead of being impressed, the school phoned police about Ahmed’s circuit-stuffed pencil case. The police duly arrived, and took Ahmed, in handcuffs, to juvenile detention.
I expect they will have more to say tomorrow, but Ahmed's sister asked me to share this photo. A NASA shirt! pic.twitter.com/nR4gt992gB— Anil Dash (@anildash) September 16, 2015
Police are now considering charging him with making a hoax bomb, even though they have acknowledged that he told everyone that it’s a clock.
Call me picky here, but if the police/school really thought it was a bomb, why the hell didn't they evacuate the school and call bomb disposal?
This sounds like a bunch of people, having realised that they have made fools of themselves, now desperately trying to cover their own backsides.
