Yes, he made a nuisance of himself but the teacher isn't going to tell someone to put away a bomb, or even something they thought had any possibilities of being one.

I'm mostly upset that idiots claimed he actually made a clock.

It would be like me cutting the fenders and quarters off a car, taping on cardboard and saying I built a car.
LOL, true.

He recalled showing one teacher the clock and her telling him that she thought it was "nice" but he shouldn't show other instructors, according to the paper.

I'm not going to bust it finding "science" teacher but that is who he initially showed it to. Yes, a science teacher at any level would know he did not have a bomb.

I believe he showed it to his science teacher who told him to put in in his backpack and not show anyone, so he took it out and showed it to his English teacher then preceded to plug it in and start the timer. The issue was with a bomb hoax. Bringing a device that appeared to be a bomb. I dont think anyone thought it was really a bomb. Kids get in as much trouble for pretending sticks and fingers are guns. God save the queen if they actually brought a toy gun.

Why would you presume any science teacher would know a bomb on sight. Its not as though high school science teachers studied (probably at least 10 years ago) physics, chemistry and engineering specifically in depth so they could teach children to build bombs. The science curriculum is more general.

The teacher in his science class told him to put the clock away and not show it to anyone else. The stupid kid did not listen to that advice. Mohamed later took it out of his backpack and played with it in English class.

When the English teacher heard it beeping she took it away from him and called the principal. Do you expect an English teacher to know what it was? Even if it was just a cellphone the teacher had the right to confiscate it. You are not allowed to play around with cellphones or any other personal devices in class. She didn't know what it was which is why she rightly called the principal. What do you do with a strange-looking beeping device that looks like it could be a bomb? Even the science teacher said he thought it could be mistaken for a briefcase bomb. And it doesn't help to calm people's fears when the owner is a muslim named Mohamed.


Mohamed said he brought the clock to school because he "wanted to impress all of his teachers".[11] His engineering teacher, upon seeing the clock said, "That's really nice", but advised him to keep the device in his backpack for the rest of the school day, as he thought it resembled something akin to a briefcase bomb.[13] Mohamed, however, later plugged it in during his English class and set a time on the clock.[11] When the clock alarm started beeping, the English teacher requested to see it, and said, "Well, it looks like a bomb. Don't show it to anyone else."[10] In an interview posted on KXAS-TV (NBC 5), Mohamed said he "closed it with a cable ... 'cause I didn't want to lock it to make it seem like a threat, so I just used a simple cable so it won't look that much suspicious."[17]

Did you see what he brought? Yes any science teacher would know what he brought was NOT a bomb.

He was told to put it away. No one is going to tell a kid to put away a possible bomb.

The teacher and principal didn't know what it was, which is why they called the police.

The English teacher didn't tell him to put it away, she took it away from him. Even if she did tell him to put it away at first, so what? She didn't know what it was and took the boys word at first that it was just a clock, but when it started beeping it dawned on her that it could be a weapon of some sort and called the principal.

BTW, calling the cops was dumb.

He deserved an apology, but no money. Once they tried to sue the school, I lost any sympathy for them.
