Someone else pointed this out to me today.
Neither the school nor the cops actually thought that Ahmed had a bomb. Not for a moment.
What do administrators do to a school if they think there's a bomb in it? They signal to evacuate the school as quickly as they can get to the intercom.
Which never happened. Instead, they took him and his clock to the office and let school continue around him and his device until they could get the cops there and photograph the cops arresting a 14-year-old boy.
These pricks weren't upset about a bomb. Every adult in that farce was pulling a racist asshat move to embarass the kid with the brown skin and the Arab name. #istandwithahmed
