Maybe the teacher thought it may be a bomb because it looks like a freaking bomb? There should be nobody blaming the school teacher and administration. There are so many terrorists nationwide aside from knowing Muslims are training their young generation how to assemble bombs and no one can deny the suicide bombers are rampant. The police questioned the kid, but he wasn't able to explain himself and that's why he was taken into custody. Obama needs to concentrate what's more important with our nation. If he really wants the Mohamed family to come over in a white house, he should do it when he is not getting paid during office hours.
In the photo: The clock built by Mohamed. In September 2015, Ahmed Mohamed, a Muslim Sudanese-American high school freshman, was detained by police at school in Irving, Texas, under suspicion of possessing a hoax bomb. He had brought a home project, where he had reassembled a commercial digital clock inside a locking pencil box, to school to show to his teachers. His English teacher, believing the clock resembled a bomb, and because Mohamed refused to explain the situation, confiscated the project and reported him to the school principal's office. The police were called and Mohamed was questioned for one hour and a half. He was taken into custody, handcuffed, transported to a juvenile detention facility, fingerprinted, and his photograph was taken. He was then released to his parents. The case was not pursued further by juvenile justice authorities but he was suspended from school for three days.
News of the incident went viral on Twitter, and sparked debates on racial profiling and Islamophobia alongside other related topics, as well as raising a number of conspiracy theories and hoax allegations. Politicians, technology company executives, and media personalities remarked on the incident. More: en.wikipedia.org.
He didn't build a clock he took apart a clock and put it in a case. And it LOOKED like a bomb, sorry but that's what it looks like. I would have turned him over to the police if nothing else to see if someone around him was teaching him to make a "BOMB"
