Wanting to show off his home made digital clock to his engineering teacher, a 14-year-old boy is arrested for being guilty of "making while brown." Reportedly school officials confused the device for a bomb.
School officials originally thought his clock was a bomb and now are simply calling it a “hoax bomb.” The school administrator, Dan Cummings, in an unapologetic letter, wrote that children are encouraged “specifically [to] not bring items to school that are prohibited.” This, we are to assume, includes science projects.
Ahmed, for his part, wanted to bring the clock to show an engineering teacher. Because it consisted of a board with a digital display and a tiger hologram on the front, the teacher recommended he hide it from the rest of the staff. When it beeped in class another teacher took it away. Then Ahmed was arrested. He was released to his parents soon after but the police wanted to be careful.
