    'Clock Boy' Loses in Court, Father's Defamation Lawsuit Dismissed

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/01...uit-dismissed/

    A district court judge in Texas has dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed by Ahmed Mohamed on his own behalf and on behalf of his 15-year-old son, Ahmed Mohamed. They had sued Fox News, Glenn Beck, and the mayor of Irving -- among others -- for defamation in September of 2016.A year earlier, Ahmed, then a 14-year-old freshman at an Irving, Texas, high school, was arrested, briefly detained by police, and suspended for three days after bringing to school a "cool clock" that looked like a briefcase bomb. Ahmed claimed to have "invented" the easily assembled clock, and that he had brought it to school to show it to his shop teacher.
    The incident led many to question the Mohamed family's motives. Newly appointed District Court Judge Maricela Moore dismissed the lawsuit following a nearly three-hour hearing on Monday, according to the American Freedom Law Center:

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I remember this story. The kid brought a device to school that looked like a time bomb, with jumbled wires hanging out of it. Then he sued when they told him imitation bombs aren't permitted on school grounds.

    The. It turned out he didn't build anything.
    He took an existing clock apart and just put it in a brief case without the casing.

    The way I remember the story this family has been on the scam.

    This has always been a D LIST story for me, so I have not been paying much attention.
    At some point, this practice of denunciation being insuperable and due process just an irritant and a useless antiquity, like an appendix as it has been in the Weinstein and Moore cases will have to stop, if the U.S. wishes to retain any credibility as a society of laws<<<<<<Conrad Black

    It didn't look like a time bomb unless your impression of time bomb comes from freaking cartoons.

    Please describe all of the professional experience that you have with explosives. After that could you please explain the difference in appearance of a timing mechanism of an explosive device and a clock that has been disassembled and installed into a case with an exposed circuit board and digital numbers.

    Here is an actual trigger:

    His father, Mohamed Elhassan Mohamed, seems like he’s always pushing for more publicity to raise awareness of his son’s plight — and his plans to run for President of Sudan for a third time in 2020.

    And they keep trying to make money on the deal.

    So the criteria, then, is "has circuit boards?"

    Where's the explosive, or something that looks like an explosive?
