Nerd makes clock.... gets arrested
Hey, the police just stopped a heinous terrorist. We should be thanking them.
Oh no! School administration was trying to make sure kids are safe and they made a mistake. Let's make a fucking federal case of it.

As both a public school teacher and a resident of Texas, I'm pretty embarrassed. I can also confirm that my colleagues really are that paranoid, generally-speaking.
Officials: what the **** is that thing???
Kid: It's a clock I built.
Officials: You must think we're dumb. It's a clock for a bomb, isn't it.
Kid: Nope, just a clock.
Officials: Right. Hog tie him.
Sound about right?

The police chief's video tries to explain how SERIOUSLY and CAREFULLY they investigated the young teenage engineer's suspicious thingamabob (because it had wires and numbers and stuff on it).
What a great use of tax payer dollars, gentlemen. Next they'll be investigating "bus shootings" involving Halo action figures wielding "strange military-like miniaturized weaponry".
The ancestors of Dr Lexus are probably from the same town. It all starts in Irving, Texas.

Skinny, glasses, NASA t-shirt... by the book.
Was the school evacuated?
Bingo, of course it wasn't.

Is it even legal for them to book and interrogate the kid without his parents present?
I wonder if they thought immediately that Amhed's whole family were terrorists...uh oh better call CTU and wait until Jack Bauer shows up before they call his folks...Jack might have some torturing to do.
Mohamed later said police interrogated him without allowing him to phone his parents, and the school principal wanted him to sign a written statement. A police spokesman suggested Mohamed was uncooperative.
Ultimately, Mohamed was released without charges. He received a three-day suspension, even though the school district insists that the item posed no threat.
