This is being reported as an anti-Islamic over-reaction by the school and police authorities.
A young man named Mohammed "builds" a clock and takes it to school to show his engineering teacher. When it beeps in another class, he is "accused" of having built a bomb, arrested, and taken from school.
All TOTALLY innocent, and a HORRIBLE over-reaction to an innocent little boy.
- The young man did NOT build a clock - he simply took the parts from another clock, and put them into a pencil case. NOT an engineering feat, merely a re-purposing.
- Since this was NOT original, why did he feel the need to show the teacher his "work"? Perhaps it was just a pretext to get it into school and trigger an incident?
- When confronted with questions, he does NOT explain the event, but refuses to speak. He COULD have explained, and kept himself from trouble, but he doesn't.
- Naturally, CAIR and other defenders jump into the fray. Big publicity splash, ending in the predictable comment, invite from the Prez.
Seems to me to be a deliberate attempt to work up an arrest.
