Clock Boy Ahmed Mohamed wants $15m for ‘trauma’, lives in Qatar
You will remember Clock Boy, one Ahmed Mohamed. He was arrested after teachers at his Texas school thought the homemade clock he’d brought to class looked like a bomb.
Ahmed and his family have been living in the enlightened and fair society of Qatar since the incident, where the clock is always set to ‘Pre-Enlightenment”.
Well, he’s back. And for his pain and suffering, Ahmed wants seeking $15m (£10m) from his city and school. Ahmed’s lawyers say the incident has left the teenager “deeply traumatised”. Ahmed was “publicly mistreated” and remains scarred by “severe psychological trauma”.
That’s Ahmed who went on the telly and to see Barack Obama at the White House?
The lawyers says:
“Irving Police officials immediately determined that the clock was harmless. The only reason for the overreaction was that the responsible adults involved irrationally assumed that Ahmed was dangerous because of his race, national origin and religion.”
It turns out that he’s just as greedy and demanding as the next teenager.
