14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed arrested for bringing homemade clock to school

Police in Irving, TX arrested 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed for the heinous crime of bringing a homemade clock to school. That’s right, a kid built his own digital clock out of parts and was arrested for doing so.

Of course it must be said he’s Muslim and lives in Texas, so the over-the-top racism and Islamophobia are hardly surprising. Luckily, the tech world is responding to this incident with support for Ahmed and condemnation for Irving, TX and the teachers who called the police.
