"When Ahmed Mohamed went to his high school in Irving, Texas, Monday, he was so excited. A teenager with dreams of becoming an engineer, he wanted to show his teacher the digital clock he'd made from a pencil case. The 14-year-old's day ended not with praise, but punishment, after the school called police and he was arrested."

What are your thoughts about this? Do you think he was discriminated against or the school was just being cautious? Do you think this makes Dallas look intolerant considering it's reputation as a Bible Belt city?
