Ahmed Mohamed the “clock boy” hoaxer got shut down in court today when a judge dismissed his case against the city of Irving, Texas and the school district he sued claiming his 5th Amendment rights were violated when he was arrested.
To listen to Ahmed after the incident, you would think they had destroyed his life, but he sure had a big smile on his face in all the photos that circulated after the incident for someone who had his life taken away from him.
If anyone else, of any race, would have taken a toy gun to school they would have been treated the same way. There was even an incident recently where a middle-schooler was suspended from school for “liking” a picture of a toy gun on Instagram.
Via The Daily Mail:
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.
Court papers obtained by DailyMail.com reveal on May 18, a judge dismissed the entire case. The lawsuit sought unspecified compensatory and punitive damages along with attorney fees.
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.
When the lawsuit was first filed in 2016, the district hit back at the Mohamed family’s allegations saying Ahmed deliberately disobeyed his teacher by activating the clock despite her warning.
The judge said the failed to allege any facts from which the court could reasonably conclude that Ahmed was discriminated against based on his race or religion.
“Clock boy” knew exactly what he was doing when he brought his device that looked like a bomb to school hoping to cause some sort of reaction. Whether he expected to be arrested or not is unclear. But no doubt he was baiting so he could play the victim of persecution.
Back in February “clock boy” got denied in court while trying to sue Ben Shapiro. The case was dismissed and Ahmed was ordered to pay Shapiro’s legal fees.
