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.
