I said: it’s sad they thought that kid had a bomb.
She said: they didn’t think he had a bomb.
I said: yes, they thought he made a bomb and even called the police.
She said: They just wanted to humiliate a little Muslim, African boy. They didn’t think he had a bomb.
I said: Don’t be a conspiracist. They might be a little prejudiced, but I’m sure they thought he had a bomb.
She said: Ok.
But they didn’t evacuate the school, like you do when there’s a bomb.
They didn’t call a bomb squad – like you do when there’s a bomb
They didn’t get as far away from him as possible – like you do when there’s a bomb.
Then they put him and the clock in an office- not like you do when there’s a bomb
Then they waited with him for the police to arrive.
Then they put the clock in the same car as the police.
Then they took pictures of it.
I said: Damn
They never thought he had a bomb
You might have a point. But I'm not up on ALL procedures and how they play out when a bomb is suspected. Perhaps, once it was ascertained it was not a bomb, it just looked like one - that alone may have been seen as a threat. You can barely say anything stupid on Facebook or other places without people freaking out. Today, the APPEARANCE of a threat is enough to get people moving. Unfortunately, rightfully so.
RisetovotesiR - I like your thought process. Brings clarity to the whole scenario.
Thank you for pointing all of this out. I was beginning to agree with them. Great post.
School administrators didn't really think a PopTart chewed into the shape of a gun was a real functioning gun, but that didn't stop them from going into hysterics.
BTW, that contraption isn't a clock. It's a suitcase bomb without the explosive charge. It's the equivalent of an assault rifle without a magazine being passed off as a cricket bat. How do you think the school and cops would react to that?
"Critics immediately claimed “Islamophobia” caused the teacher and law enforcement to react the way they did to the homemade clock." ---- Yes, right, because nothing like this has ever happened anywhere else in the world...
Isn't it interesting that Mein Kampf and Jihad mean essentially the same thing? We know how the first "My struggle" turned out, don't we? Isn't also interesting that Hitler, as well as, a great many Muslims have called for the eradication of the Jew? Isn't also interesting that the goal of Nazi Germany was to dominate the world and the stated goal of radical Islam is to dominate the world? Isn't it also interesting that unbelievable horrors and atrocities can be justified by both groups to obtain this goal? Isn't it also very interesting that the "liberals" of Germany's day wanted to appease and accommodate Hitler in the same way our modern day liberals want to do with Islamofascists? Isn't it also interesting that a prominent world leader tried to form a peace treaty with Hitler shortly before war broke out, much like a prominent world leader is trying to do with the world's leading sponsor of Muslim terrorism today? Isn't also very interesting that much of the world turned a blind eye when Nazi Germany began persecuting Jews, much in the same way the world is turning a blind eye to the persecution of Jews/Christians in the ME by ISIS? Perhaps Naziphobia could have averted WW 2 if it would have been taken seriously back then?
We are at war, we just don't know it yet....
I can't really say how law works in their state, but if a kid asks for the parents, that is the same as asking for a lawyer. As for federal law, the kid was arrested, handcuffed, and taken to a secure area of the police station for interrogation. This is a minor, as per federal law, that minor is supposed to have either a parent, guardian, or lawyer present. This is something that will fowl up the Irving department for years to come. I really think they are in for a costly battle not just with the parents but the DOJ who will approve a federal suit against they city of Irving. The principle is that kids don't know enough about law to defend themselves. The city of Irving, the Irving schools, and the Texas State Dept of Education all are indicted in this.
Obviously not a bomb...No explosive....But the NEXT time he brings it to school no one will suspect anything...Oh there goes little Ahmed with his little clock....so cute. Then BOOM. Then everyone will ask What the hell was wrong with the school for ignoring an obvious dry run. The school did right thing.
They never said they suspected a bomb, they always said they thought it was a hoax or replica, which replica weapons are against policy.
Stop spreading CAIR's false narrative.
