Ahmed Mohamed hasn’t had the best time here in the United States. Ahmed is the 14-year-old high school freshman who was arrested and removed in handcuffs from MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, for bringing a homemade clock to class. Eventually, the Irving Police Department determined that Ahmed, “had no intent to alarm anyone with the digital clock he assembled,” and released the young man without charges.
Not only did the school never apologize for their actions, they almost ignored their amazing gaff and stood on the principle of ‘student safety’ in a letter issued to parents the next day.
