To be fair, this is the first clock I've seen that look like this. I'm not surprised people got the wrong idea.





if it was closed and ticking, maybe that would worry people


but if a fully grown adult looks at that and thinks it's a bomb, that's retarded


Yes, paranoid teachers are usually retarded. The get upset if u pretend to have a gun with your fingers...


If the teachers of now realize that my friends and I used to play soldiers and cop and robbers they would have heart attacks.

Speaking of imaginary weapons

I wish schools would let kids be kids so they don't grow up so thin skins and paranoid of offending anyone.

An obviously staged publicity stunt. The boy's father is a Sudanese politician who ran for president twice.

So the police chief says it looks suspicious. Great comment buddy, how about his bomb squad's opinion? Or maybe they didn't they even get a quick look.

To be fair what the teachers and police did first like questioning him was understandable, but after that it became unbelievably stupid. Instead of acknowledging that it just a clock and telling him be careful of what to bring to school, they keep accusing him it was a hoax bomb, and planned to charge him with it until the social media came to the rescue; in a few cases like this, I am really grateful for the existence of social network.

Those are all racist people. Yes, they are. Him being a Muslim led to this crazy incident. The school name will be stained forever.

Good for the boy, now he's become famous and has many supporters.

They didn't even call the bomb squad or evacuate the school

I don't see why this was so big. We had a kid in high school get arrested for a cardboard gun he was using for a play recreating a modern Romeo and Juliet. That kid wasn't even allowed to walk for graduation because the case was still under investigation. By the way, he was white and he just went to the bathroom with the prop. And two other schools in the city had real guns and no issue was made. Wanna look it up. Look up La Cueva High School cardboard gun.

I was working on an autonomous robot in college and had to take a couple of days off because I was flying back home for thanksgiving. Yeah, I'm not gonna bring something that looks suspicious into an airport. Sucked that I lost five days of work though.

police not being able to tell a clock from a bomb... this shows how competent our police is... >.>

on another note, that kid has quite a talent in electronics. all the attention he received is sure to be a positive thing when he applies to college later in life. :p

You never ever bring anything that resemble guns to school. Even made from cardboard, an object shaped like a gun is forbidden.

Lets face the facts, he brought in a full sized clock in a briefcase, people aren't going to act rationally in a day with kids shooting other kids. Being Muslim of course isn't going to help the situation either.

People really are paranoid about Muslims and for good reason, It's not like they have a track record for being in the news for doing good deeds.

True that. The kid was kinda stupid. Even though they were rehearsing for the play, he shouldn't have taken it out in the hallway. But SWAT and the police force used it as a training exercise. Not fun. Especially when they throw flash bangs into your class and have you single file walk out of the school while pointing guns at your head and then a full pat down as you go to the field. And this was after everyone knew it was fake. It's good that they got the practice, but some kids were hurt because the flash bang landed on their desk and exploded in their faces.

Wasn't that long ago we had to stop selling a model of tracfone here in the states because it was very easy to make into a remote trigging device.

Hell, look at the unibomber's un-complex bombs that look more like two year old playing with construction junk nailing cut-offs into toys with nails sticking out.



Bomb like this killed 3, wounded another 23.
