The Radio Shack Clock boy is back:
A frivolous lawsuit attack.
But the judge cleaned his clock;
for the boy quite a shock!
Dismissed out of hand! What a quack!
A 14 year Muslim boy finds a 30 year old alarm clock from Radio Shack, opens it and modifies it slightly so it can be used as a timing device for bombs. He shows it to his science teacher who tells him – Good, but don’t show it to anyone. He does carry it in class the rest of the day, and when it beeps (that’s the circuit you splice to the detonator) his English teacher freaks out and calls the police. He refuses to cooperate and gets arrested.
His father, a Muslim activist complains to the white house, and from then on there is no end to the humiliation the boy must suffer for his misdeed.
Mohamed claimed he suffered “severe psychological trauma” because of the case.
He had to suffer meeting President Obama on social media and an invitation to the White House, where he met the president on the South Lawn at an astronomy event, and even worse, had to meet Bill Nye, “The Science guy; then he had to meet with Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google at a science fair; being praised by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg; being named the beneficiary of a $20,000 fundraising campaign; getting an invitation by a Canadian astronaut to visit; endure an appearance with Dr. Oz; being humiliated by MIT scientist Chanda Prescod-Weinstein for being “my ideal student”; suffer the indignation of a proclamation by New York City of “Ahmed Day”; getting scared out of his wits by visiting Sudanese President Omar al Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for genocide; then he had to meet the Prime Minister of Turkey, Ahmet Davutoglu; endure a trip to the Middle East during which, as the Huffington Post described it, he “hung with Jordan’s Queen Rania”; and last but not least had to make a pilgrimage to Mecca as an honored guest of Saudi Arabia King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
How much severe psychological trauma can a young boy endure?
In spite of this the judge threw out all charges, finding no cause for intentional discrimination.
