BIG TIME Garnet92 KUDOS to our own Crawfish for bringing this to my attention!
The latest tweet from a Muslim boy who brought a clock to school that was mistaken for a bomb has some people wondering whether he and his family planned this all along.
By now, the story of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed — who brought to school a homemade clock in a briefcase that looked startlingly like a briefcase bomb, and who was subsequently arrested — has gone far and wide, garnering responses from various celebrities, including President Barack Obama, who invited Mohamed to the White House.
There is even a prayer vigil being held for the unharmed child, who appears in his latest tweet to be relishing his time in the spotlight.
That latest tweet stirred a hornet’s nest of controversy, as it shows Mohamed and his family all smiles with the caption, “Going to meet my lawyer.”
Several people on social media said the entire incident was planned by Mohamed and his family, and called it a scam.
And you can count me as one of those who don’t see this episode as entirely innocent. If anyone would read the other post on this subject HERE, you’ll see that what Ahmed brought to school wasn’t a “homemade clock,” it was a collection of parts out of a commercial (Radio Shack) Micronta clock inserted into his pencil case. He didn’t “invent” it or build it from scratch. And let’s not lose sight of the fact that the device required AC power and was both a fire and electrocution hazard with the wiring placed so haphazardly in the case.
And NO charges were filed. He was detained and brought to a detention center for questioning by police. His parents were called and he was released to them after police were satisfied that no crime had taken place. Yes, he was led away from school in handcuffs, that’s standard police procedure, regardless of the individual’s skin color or religion.
If anyone wants to see what honest citizens with a modicum of common sense are up against in today’s PC world, simply read the Tweets in the original bizpacreview article (link above). Everyone is up in arms over this poor innocent teen genius who has been persecuted because of his name and the color of his skin. They either don’t know the facts surrounding the incident or prefer to ignore them. The kid brought a suspicious-looking device, in a briefcase, to school. He even (apparently) plugged it in during English class since the alarm went off – why’d he do that? I’m convinced that the kid was put up to this by his father and/or CAIR who were quick to seize the opportunity to expand the dustup into a national scandal and then file a lawsuit.
Sorry guys, this stinks to high heaven to me.
AN INTERESTING UPDATE! Sat. evening 20:18. A Micronta clock was used as the triggering device on the bomb that blew up Air India flight 182. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia article – go down to the “Explosives and Clocks” section and read about a Micronta clock, bought at Radio Shack, was modified to trigger the device.
