“Sorry”…

So some kit named Ahmed Muhammed did a project for school….Built a clock that an ignorant person thought resembled their idea of what a bomb looked like…Or what fictionalized bombs look like in the movies…I mean wires and digital display mean bomb, right?

It was mistaken for a bomb. …Of course, if you look at the pictures, there is nothing but circuitry…no actual, you know, explosives. Nothing that could be mistaken for explosives. But cops aren’t very discerning……apparently even less so when your name is Ahmned…So he got arrested. Truly, anyone who after about 30 seconds of looking at the thing who thought this was a bomb is an idiot….

There is prudence, and then there is unrealistic fear and paranoia. You figure which this is.

At least the kid has gotten some fame from this.

  1. The problem is the "zero tolerance " policies put in place.

    No one was this up in arms on may other similar situations that are listed in this comment from a Hot Air comment thread a few days ago:

    FWIW

    I have to share this from the Hot Air comments section:

    For those whining about ‘Islamophobia’…

    Where were YOU when schools adopted ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies?

    Where were YOU when…AL: 5 year-old girl forced to sign ‘No Suicide’ contract after drawing pic of gun?

    Where were YOU when…SC: 6 year-old boy expelled for bringing plastic toy gun to school?

    Where were YOU when…CO: 6 year-old boy suspended; charged with sexual harassment for kissing girl?

    Where were YOU when…MD: 7 year-old boy suspended for eating Pop-Tart into shape of gun (or mountain – YMMV)?

    Where were YOU when…OH: 10 year-old boy suspended for ‘finger gun’?

    Where were YOU when…VA: 10 year-old boy arrested after toy gun found in school backpack?

    Where were YOU when…UT: 14 year-old boy arrested for bringing toy gun to school?

    Where were YOU when…LA: 8th grader arrested for throwing Skittles on school bus?

    Where were YOU when…AZ: 15 year-old boy suspended for having agun pic as his computer background?

    Where were YOU when… ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies in schools were enacted?

    Where were YOU when…kids as young as 5 were being detained or suspended for ‘violating’ schools’ ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies?

    Where were YOU when…we were vocalising our disgust at the ridiculousness of school ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies?

    Where were YOU when…we were screaming how school ‘No Tolerance’ policies were ending asinine arrests, suspensions or expulsions of blacks for absolutely ridiculous things?

    Where were YOU when…we were condemning the idiocy of school ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies?

    Where were YOU when…we were screaming how school ‘No Tolerance’ policies were ending asinine arrests, suspensions or expulsions of Latinos for absolutely ridiculous things?

    Where were YOU when… we were screaming about all of this ridiculousness?

    Where were YOU when…we were screaming how school ‘No Tolerance’ policies were ending asinine arrests, suspensions or expulsions of whites for absolutely ridiculous things?

    Why is it that YOU only weigh in now that school ‘Zero Tolerance’ policies and overreaction have affected a Muslim?

  2. Anyone who thinks that this was just islamophobia should ask themselves whether a white male could have gotten onto an airliner with that "clock" thoday?
