Ahmed Mohamed who makes his own radios and repairs his own go-kart hoped to impress his teachers when he brought a homemade clock to MacArthur High on Monday.
Instead, the school phoned police about Ahmeds circuit-stuffed pencil case.
So the 14-year-old missed the student council meeting and took a trip in handcuffs to juvenile detention. His clock now sits in an evidence room. Police say they may yet charge him with making a hoax bomb though they acknowledge he told everyone who would listen that its a clock.
In the meantime, Ahmeds been suspended, his father is upset and the Council on American-Islamic Relations is once again eyeing claims of Islamophobia in Irving.

Put entire family on a watch list for life.
Well, when people of his common heritage stop blowing people up in the name of their religion,
then he’ll stop being arrested for homemade “clocks”.
And when you hear the timer go off , be sure to yell Aloha Snackbar!
He was born in the US.
I think Dad is there based in what cop said when he found out who the kid was...
Though I can’t imagine why an imam who ran for president of a terror craphole like Sudan would be on a watch list..
Assuming the kid is telling the truth about showing it to his teacher
He showed it to his science teacher who complimented him and advised him not to show it to anyone else.
His father ran for president of Sudan
While living in Irving Texas
That’s his story and he’s sticking to it though waffling on other details
Let’s hear it from the science teacher
Hey the cops are holding this thing for possible evidence
I wonder if it’s keeping good time in the EOD locker?
And Dolphie was born in Austria, and Hussein claims he was berfed in Hawaii. What does the place of birth have to do with it?
A gazillion Messicants were berfed here, and they obviously are NOT AMERICAN, and have no intentions of ever becoming one other than to grift our social services!
Could be one reason America is so bad at STEM training in schools — if kids show aptitude, we arrest them.
Wish someone would have arrested the 19 terrorist highjacks before they blew up the Twin Towers on 9/11. These people should not be allowed into the USA.
Thanks Liz - great info!
Where you were born does have something to do with the senselessness of people telling you to go home.
As far as the kid is concerned, he IS home.
A kid wearing a NASA teeshirt, member of the robotics club, misses his student council meeting because he was arrested in a government school for bringing a simple circuit that devised to tell time. Seriously, guys, if you don’t give this guy the presumption of innocence, I’d say there’s some pretty distorted prejudice. His accusers are government school teachers and Irving cops. Both groups routinely blow things way out of proportion: government school teachers with zero tolerance nonsense, and Irving cops with unwarranted roadside cavity searches (aka, raping citizens).
At 11 a.m. CDT, the Irving cops and school system have a press conference. We may just learn the facts of the matter then.
Thats an ambivalent datum. He may be here because he is opposed to the prevailing standards of the Sudan, and he may be running because he thinks he can help change them.
Or, yes, he could be trouble. Insufficient data.
YES! Thank you. Sure, this is a troublesome demographic. But IF this kid is innocent, the school and police just made it a little harder for him to believe that the US really is about freedom, our common law traditions, and so forth.
Of course, we have reached critical mass WRT to ignorant and thoughtless teachers in state schools. The good ones are in the minority and are pressured to be mediocre. So a circuit board without anything that could be an explosive on it is taken by the wonderously stupid school as a potential ... bomb!
Oooh, transistors! LEDs! Beepy noises just like in the MOVIES! Everybody under his desk, STAT!
