Muslim Teen Creates Clock Shows Teachers Arrested

Wed Sep 16, 2015 3:42 pm

Police wanted to know what it was, he responded a clock, because it was

The teachers and the cops were probably scared the kid is far smarter than all of them combined.

I find it sad how they insist with the bomb thing...

In other news, his dad apparently ran for president of Sudan wanting to implement a democracy, freedom of the press, women's right and fighting terrorism.

But being stupid, like these people, is how you turn them towards radical islam.

I do not think this is a "Muslim" issue, I think it is a science issue.

I just posted a thread I composed but to address the science aspect of it as I think that is the real problem. I am concerned it will get deleted now but I hope it won't as it is really a different topic, It is about the actions of schools etc. not the student being a certain religion or race etc.

Based on all the feedback I have seen, the school board in that district has one hell of a lawsuit inbound. The kid had is ingenuity and freedom attacked for no good reason other than some very biased and ignorant folks.

Hopefully Mohammad keeps working on his circuits and designs . There aren't many kids at that age doing that kind of work and enjoying it.

If you are carrying this?


or this:


The teachers knew who this kid was, they were reacting to "the scary looking object" and being stupid. They could have just stopped it there but the over concern "for safety" lead them to call the police. They and the police then proceeded to overreact. I think.

Quoting Acheron (Reply 7):

Actually this happens a lot. Not because of religion but simply because of "power" and the officers think they can get something from the kids. They shouldn't do it but they do, kids have the same rights as adults (well mostly.

And they put anyone, students included, in handcuffs when they are escorting them off campus for any suspected problem. Especially if it is seen as a safety or security problem. It is considered the proper procedure by almost all police departments in cities (that I know of).

Honestly? Yes, they probably would have.

Because our stupidity is not bounded by religion alone, boxes with wires are scary and dangerous things. And in our new world of zero tolerance at schools all things must be dangerous first and reacted to as such.

You mean the one whose teacher took full responsibility for what happened and could have faced charges?

Quote:
The teacher, Randy Wilson, 44, who has taught chemistry at Kiowa High School for two years, was placed on paid administrative leave. He did not comment on the incident.
[...]

The student, whose name officials refused to release, remains in school and will not be disciplined by the school, because he had his teacher's approval for the project.

It is not clear what charges the teacher and student might face. They could include possession of an incendiary device and reckless endangerment.
http://www.nytimes.com/2002/01/18/us...aises-interest-of-authorities.html

Yup, nothing happened there, nothing at all. No reaction...

Yes, exactly. The problem is fear, combined with over-caution and overreaction and has lead us down the path to stupidity.

Not just religion, you could mix the race in there too.

Quote:

When Ahmed was called out of class, he said he was brought into a room with four police officers, one of whom said, "Yup. That's who I thought it was."

A bit dark, Muslim name, made a "scary" clock in school. Sure, no prejudice whatsoever.

Quoting lewis (Reply 20):

You have no actual idea as to the reference or context of the statement.

At this point all rational discussion is nearly moot as people are determined to drag this into a racist or religion issue and will exploit anything to try and demonstrate that. And I am not saying that some people may not have had such feelings/thoughts at points during this situation, but rather that those were not the reason why this happened, why the boy was detained and arrested. This happens elsewhere to people who are not "this or that" and it is due to fear.

I hope I am not alone on this.

And the key question that is at debate here is essentially unanswerable because the incidents being offered as "proof" are not THIS incident. I really believe that any kid would have been arrested because of the fear of people and schools nowadays. Schools have gotten shot up since those other stories, zero tolerance is even more so that it was a few years ago.

Of course.

And:
- No teacher convincing police that it isn't a bomb, and that they know it's one of their bright and peaceful students
- Police having no respect towards educated teachers who could tell if it was a bomb or not - hell, the teacher supervising these science projects must understand what their pupils are doing!
- Fear eats knowledge. PANIC!!!

Correct. White kids are associated with bringing guns to school. Kids named "Muhammad" are associated with bombs. That's how prejudice works.

Quoting Tugger (Reply 22):
You have no actual idea as to the reference or context of the statement.

And neither do you. You formed an opinion based on what you read and I formed mine. The kid told his teachers, school and police several times that he had made a clock. It was the rest of them that insisted on the word "bomb" even though there was nothing (other than specific prejudice) that would point to that. As for the pictures you posted above, well, any mechanism involving cables and liquids - so anything that involves robotics and electronics - could be mistaken for a bomb. I ain't buying it.

Quoting Tugger (Reply 22):

There have been similar incidents but that only happened because the item/experiment caused something that could be interpreted as an explosion or a threat. Show me a case where a white kid has had the same thing happen to them (without an experiment that caused a bang, smoke, flare but was just a clock) and I may be persuaded to agree with you. Otherwise you are right, the discussion is moot.

That's not his argument, he's arguing that the situation would have been exactly the same if the kid had been white and called John Smith.

You're arguing that the authorities are looking at the wrong kids.

I'd say your arguments are quite opposite.

I am still surprised as why he was suspended 3 days from school.

Remember this story from few years ago and prior to 9/11, it was a very busy day for me, i received a call from my son school saying that they overheard my son saying that he will get a plane and bomb the school and that i should come to school to discuss that event, i said i will meet with you the day he gets the plane, never heard from them school. My son was grounded for a couple of weeks.

And that's why private schools in the DFW area manage to lure the best and the brightest students away from public schools thanks to financial aid and scholarships.

I'm a product of a DFW-area school where not only bringing "things like that" is no big deal, it is actively encouraged. I hope Ahmed transfers to a place where his talent and intelligence can be properly nurtured and developed--maybe somewhere in Richardson, near the Texas Instruments campus.

Once again, much ado about nothing. We have zero tolerance here in schools. You cannot even cock your finger like a gun, suspension, one kid was suspended for biting his sandwich so it looked like a gun, Lego gun, suspension, this kid brings an electronic device which looks somewhat like a bomb unannounced and horror of horrors, he gets suspended.


He was naïve, the teacher was scared, the police did not have a clue what it was and neither would I. I know one thing, when you think your ass is going to get blown off, you are not looking at skin color, nor religion. As usual a hysterical reaction on here. I wonder if 9/11 and all the bombings going on everywhere could be blamed for induced hysteria, such as we see on here. I have to wonder what would have been said on here if this boy was white, blonde, blue eyed? I would say absolutely nothing as usual. I give President Obama credit for showing this boy that you can still be a winner and go to the White House even when you are a Muslim. The American way.

Somewhat like a bomb? This was a digital clock. Should everyone wearing a watch be arrested?

What about a person wearing shoes? Those sure as hell look like bombs. I have to take mine off every time I go through airport security to PROVE they are not. Why didn't everyone get suspended at that school?
The lack of common sense and intelligence in that school's administration and the IPD is mind boggling .

You missed the part, as did the instructor, where the kid said it was a clock. It had a digital display that displayed time. Did the kid say anything about ammonium nitrate? C4? Nitroglycerin or a host of other CHEMICAL components of a bomb?

The teacher is an imbecile, not because they didn't trust the kid, but because they didn't ask someone with more intelligence or understanding of what constitutes a bomb or a bomb threat.

I did not miss that part at all. If I thought it was a suspicious device in this climate of terrorism and with the homegrown terrorist constantly in the news, and I did not know if it was harmless, and my students and myself could possibly be in danger, I most certainly would not let this boys word satisfy me. I would have called the Police, they are the experts in a crisis. Look at the ages of the school shooters, just fresh faced kids mostly. What did Ronald Reagan so famously say "Trust but verify" That can save your life along with the student you are supposed to protect.

Boloney, that is what your reply is. Unless I am mistaken do you have the audacity to suggest that because I said I would not believe someone of a different color than I, makes me a racist? If I am mistaken, please explain.

You said because of "climate of terrorism" and with the "home grown terrorists" constantly in the news, you would have done the same thing. If you mean "terrorism" as in Dylan Roof and the like, where its non-exclusive to the elephant in the room (ISIS), then I'll retract my words.

BTW, the kid was interrogated for over and hour, and THEN arrested. If they were so certain it was a bomb, why did the bomb squad not show? Why not evacuate the school?

I am still surprised as why he was suspended 3 days from school.

That bothers me too. Why would he still be suspended if the whole thing was a big misunderstanding ? This smells like a classic case of cover your ass from the school administration.

In this climate of terrorism, everyone is suspect, white, brown, black red, yellow. Nobody is exclusive, nor excluded. We have children killing children, we have volunteers going overseas to commit terror. We have criminals shooting up the police, targeting police, that is domestic terrorism. We have theatre shooters, shooting innocent people. What part of terror do you not understand? Always splitting hairs on here, argument for the sake of argument, when there is no valid argument. This teacher acted as she saw fit, you do not like it, go tell it to the judge. The police did their duty as they saw fit, are you a police expert? The boy was exonerated, apologized to. Invited to the White House.

It is called zero tolerance. He disrupted the whole school because he did not think out what the ramifications were of bringing a suspicious device to school.

In that case I retract my statement, however your history on here has shown that you have little tolerance for Muslims. I'm skeptical, but I'll still retract my statement.

Actually you can tell it to the officer who made the snarky comment, "that's who I though it was". And no I'm not a police expert, but I do think it's a bit silly to interrogate a boy for over an hour about a potential bomb and not even have the bomb squad actually determine if it was a bomb, since they did not believe him.

Did I miss the part where the teacher and the school administration apologized?

I cannot even hope to explain that statement by the police officer, not too professional if he had no grounds or earlier contact with this boy. I cannot question the methods used, they are the authorities called in. Maybe they do not have a bomb squad available to them.

My error, I reread the article, no apology so far.
