Texas Teen Takes Briefcase Clock To School – Creates A Stir….

The media is so full of obfuscation with this story it’s quite funny.

If you were to read any of a number of articles (EXAMPLE HERE) about Ahmed Mohamed and his “clock” he brought to school, you’d never quite get the picture of what this “clock” looked like. Well here it is:

Ahmed Hohamed ClockThis is what he carried into school

There is a particular amount of hypocrisy on the left circling this story. A Caucasian kid chews a Pop Tart into the shape of a gun, gets suspended from school and liberals – meh, no-one cares. A Muslim kid takes this “briefcase clock” into school, gets suspended, and liberals are apoplectic.

  1. Sorry if this was brought up but it was beeping. That’s how it got called to everyone’s attention. His little box of wires was beeping.

      I mentioned that on the daily thread. The only reason he was suspended is because it disputed the class.

          I don’t think that is quite correct, John P. The police were called and said they would have arrested anyone with a similar device. He showed it to his engineering teacher during 1st period and the teacher told him not to show it to anyone else. You are correct that it beeped during class and here we are. The fault lies with that 1st teacher. No matter your nationality or color, that should have been reported if it was not a school project or there was not a science fair that day.

            I agreed with everything except “The fault lies with that 1st teacher.”

            My wife is an eighth grade teacher, I explained her the whole situation and asked her opinion.

            With no hesitation she said the kid was being a smart ass. She’s seen it all from 8th graders, and I have very little doubt she is right.

            Despite the spin the liberal media is putting on this, I don’t blame the teacher at all for disciplining the smart ass with the bleeping brief case. In the age of “zero tolerance” we live in, this is a clear cut case of suspension.

              Our school would have gone into lockdown and the County bomb squad called to investigate. While I don’t agree with handcuffing the student, he definitely brought an item to school that incited terror. Wait until he tries taking it on the plane to visit Barry at the Whitehouse. Tell me TSA et al would not investigate and interrogate as if it was an IED. Or will Barry send AF1 on our dime so Ahmed doesn’t get TSA groped? Yes, Science is great and kids should be inspired, until your Ideology takes over. Was this science, or cobbling electronics together? The first teacher should have held onto the device until end of day for the student. They had the knowledge of it not being a bomb, but realized it would be a problem if he showed it to other teachers who would not be able to discern what the device is and isn’t. What’s that behind the huge LED display Ahmed??? What are these wires going into the briefcase panel??? This very well could have been a probe, and now everyone knows a kid can walk into your school with a briefcase full of electronics.

        EVERYBODY here needs to read this. It explains everything we have all been saying here. This was a total setup. No doubt about it. To get a reaction, he had to plug in, or unplug the so called clock IN ENGLISH CLASS to make it beep and then, showed it to the English teacher afterwards. So, nobody took the bait until he forced the issue. Then, he wouldn’t give the cops a straight answer, which his parents won’t allow to be released to the public. And, the family connections are unmistakably extreme muslim connections. After reading this, I have to wonder if our Faux-Pres Obozo had prior knowledge of what was going to happen from CAIR.

    As a retired kindergarten teacher, I am deeply disturbed by this attack by this child today, who had CAIR on speed dial. Didn’t the 9-11 hijackers do exactly this, take a test flight to perfect their technique? I don’t think the plan was to bomb the school; the plan is to make us look Islamophobic, AGAIN! So, will it be OK if he manufactures a pressure cooker and brings it next week?
    On a teacher’s certificate, it reads that I am “in loco parentis” (in lieu of the parent) and I took that requirement very seriously and the majority of my peers felt the same. After Columbine and Sandy Hook, the rules changed. I, for one, do not believe that young man and his family did not understand this.

      Just curious. What is the source of that briefcase bomb picture? To me, as someone who knows nothing about bombs, but does have expert knowledge of digital systems and engineering prototypes of same, “bomb” wouldn’t even cross my mind looking at either of those pictures. I can provide pictures of similar looking devices I have been regularly carrying on commercial flights over the past 30 years or so. They go through the x-ray screeners and once in a great while I’ll get asked to perform the “expert TSA test”. That is plug it in, turn it on, and if a light comes on to show it is “working”, I get to go on my way.

        I get your point. The “actual suitcase bomb” looks overtly complex. But it may have been designed with remote arming, remote triggering, pressure change activation, monitoring circuits to prevent disarming, or proximity fuse.

          Thanks for the link. That is a much clearer image. The Novell tag on the briefcase and the nature of the two circuit boards (1990-ish looking microprocessor boards with lots of IO connectors) make me think it is some Novell demo device. The wires running to the folding top (of the device in the briefcase) are connected to what look like switches and red and green LEDs. Also note that there is a AC power supply (like you would have for a laptop) on the right side. AC powering is an awkward limitation for a bomb. The circuit boards look like general purpose computers, so they certainly could be used for adding intelligence to a bomb (as Dems B. Dcvrs mentions above), but without any identifiable explosive, I could say the same about the laptop I’m typing on right now. Then again, all of that could be a dodge to make someone think it is not a bomb.

          As for the kid and his clock, I think he was just being provocative with no motive other than being a dumbass teenager. I made digital clocks and lots of much more complicated electronic devices when I was his age (and took some to school at times). But to me, it looks like he used a kit or disassembled an actual clock and put it in a briefcase. Not like he was some electronics genius but maybe he does have a genuine interest in electronics. Hard to say and I really really really don’t want to rely on school administrators with all the stories of ridiculous reactions to “finger guns” and “NRA t-shirts”.

    Yeah, it looks like a bomb. Yeah, they should have investigated it. Arresting him was absolutely ridiculous as is the suspension. Yes, even if he was “passive aggressive” or a “smart ass”. The investigation found that 1. It was not a bomb. 2. He wasn’t trying to pass it off as anything but a clock. This school and police force deserve the criticism.. regardless of whether the kid is some scientific prodigy or an angel.

  12. Looking closer at the “Clock” Why is there both a cord and a 9 volt battery connection? Of course it could be a memory maintainer when to 120 volt power is out, but still. It really looks like the kid just took apart mommies bedside radio/clock and stuffed it into a suitcase. I really think it was a dry run myself.

  15. What gets me is some people are saying the school should have handled it. Just how is the school to check that this thing was not a bomb? Try to set it off themselves? They did the right thing and called the cops to handle it. You call in a bomb threat and it turns out to be false does not mean you are free to go.
