Remember when possession of a revolver shaped Pop Tart could get a child busted? Well, comrades, much progress has been made since those early days. As you will see, Ahmed Mohamed is now considered a hero for bringing – what any rational person could judge to be – a bomb to school. Even Dear Leader is singing his praises.
When Ahmed Mohamed went to his high school in Irving, Texas, Monday, he was so excited. A teenager with dreams of becoming an engineer, he wanted to show his teacher the digital clock he’d made from a pencil case.
The 14-year-old’s day ended not with praise, but punishment, after the school called police and he was arrested. A photo shows Ahmed, wearing a NASA t-shirt, looking confused and upset as he’s being led out of school in handcuffs.
“They arrested me and they told me that I committed the crime of a hoax bomb, a fake bomb,” the freshman later explained to WFAA after authorities released him.
[*NOTE TO SELF:] Call Secret Service and see if they’ll be inspecting the “clock” Ahmed brings.
