Clock boy, Ahmed Mohamed, is back in the news today. The $15 million dollar lawsuit for discrimination was tossed out of court on the basis that there isn’t even a hint of discrimination on the part of the school. Ahmen is the hoaxer who claimed he built a clock that turned out to be false. He took the workings of a clock and placed it in a box. Imam in Chief Barack Obama brought him to the White House, although I think that was mostly to try to prove which of the two were the biggest fraud. Obama won in a walk.
A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by Ahmed Mohamed’s father, saying the family will not get a payout from the city of Irving, Texas or the school district for the ‘clock boy’ scandal, DailyMail.com has learned.
On September 14, 2015, 14-year-old Ahmed gained national attention when his high school teacher suspected he brought a bomb to school.
Ahmed was surprised and showed the teacher it was actually a homemade alarm clock. She told the Muslim teen she would keep it behind her desk for the rest of the day.
Later that day, the teacher called the police who arrested Ahmed at MacArthur High School. Ahmed’s father, Mohamed Mohamed, claimed the officers were overly forceful in pulling him from his chair. He says they yanked his arms up and behind his back so far that his right hand touched the back of his neck.
Ahmed was booked, finger printed, interrogated and had his mugshot taken for the offense of a ‘hoax bomb’. The charges were later dropped.
Mohamed filed a Federal lawsuit against the City of Irving, Texas and Irving Independent School District accusing them of violating his son’s civil rights.
The judge wrote: ‘Plaintiff does not allege any facts from which this court can reasonably infer that any IISD employee intentionally discriminated against Ahmed Mohamed based on his race or religion.’
Further, he notes that the suit failed to identify any policy, custom, or practice of the City that was allegedly the moving force behind any violation of Ahmed’s Fifth Amendment rights.
