Here in high school, none of the teachers know what I can do, Ahmed said, fiddling with a cable while a soldering iron dangled from the shelf behind him.
Yeah, real bright there boy genius -- let a red hot soldering iron just dangle from a shelf.
DEPORT! DEPORT! DEPORT!
Who says its on? Its a descriptive setting. The iron is dangling. Is it on?
“...let a red hot soldering iron just dangle from a shelf.”......
No where in the article did I read the soldering iron was plugged in and/or “hot”.
Not being one who supports Muslim believers and in defense of the boy, who seems to have some electronic and mechanical skills, demonstrating those skills has nothing to do with his being a Muslim. If his name had been Fred Johnson or Everett Wilson, would this be a story? Yes, and he would still have been expelled from school for bringing the devise to school.
Thank you. That’s what I thought, too.
