Just as I suspected: Ahmed Mohamed was arrested for being an “uppity Muslim,” and for no other reason. The police have already admitted they knew “right away” the clock wasn’t a bomb. They accused Ahmed of “hoaxing” a bomb, even though he NEVER called it a bomb, ALWAYS claimed it was a clock every time they asked him. But because he wouldn’t “admit” to being sinister and “up to no good,” he was arrested.
He was arrested for maintaining his innocence and refusing to admit to crimes he didn’t commit.
The mayor of Irving, Texas and a representative of the police are unrepentant about the arrest of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed, the teenager who built a digital clock at home and brought it to school.
“In my own conversations with the police is that he was not forthcoming with information, but I just think common sense prevails,” Mayor Beth Van Duyne said. “Does it make sense? And if not, why?”
Van Duyne was well on her way to becoming a conservative folk hero before the incident with Mohamed because of her crusade to stop a non-existent Islamic Sharia law she believed was coming to Dallas.
