I wish I could be on this jury.

I will no longer refer to him has Clock Boy, since he didn't actually build a clock or anything like it. Pulling screws out of a store bought clock and moving the guts to a contain is closer to making an IED. He should be called:
Fake Bomb Boy.
Just read the 35 page complaint. (so much for a short, plain, concise statement).
Apparently, the State of Texas gets a "D" for anti-Muslim sentiment and an "F" for continuing a long tradition of racial disparity in student discipline.
And of course, the State of Texas has a history of discrimination against Muslims in Texas curriculum and schools.
There's references made to the 1790 Naturalization Act, reference to the 5 million Irish immigrants denounced for their origin and Catholic faith. (Hey, wait a second.. I have Irish blood.. and I'm a Catholic.. albeit, not a very good one... holy $#@!BALLS.. .NOW I feel discriminated against!)... Chinese Expulsion Act of 1892, etc etc etc.
Wow... just.. wow.
LOL, nice cash grab $#@!ing tools. You're gonna make life for your burgeoning genius hell but go get that paper! I don't see any reason the school district should settle, even if its for a small fraction of their ask. Go back to the desert $#@!s.
We need to send a pack of cub scouts or weblos over to clock boys house to kick his little conspiratorial ass. Make it a merit badge event.
The original thread of this story is much better, where we had idiots immediately come to the defense of the kid.
$#@! them and the flying carpet they ride on.
School and teacher did the right thing. If anybody overreacted, it was the cops.
Also the poptart kid always gets brought up as an example of a school overreacting. I would encourage anybody that hasn't, to read beyond the headlines on that one. The kid was a total disruptive disaster who happened to make his poptart into the shape of a gun while doing a million other things to detract from the school environment. Parents take their incomplete story to the media who cant help but run with it.
From the school's lawyer:
"As much as the parents want this case to be about a 'gun,' it is, rather, a case about classroom disruption from a student who has had a long history of disruptive behavior," Nussbaum wrote in his opinion, which was dated June 26, the Washington Post reported. He asserted that the suspension came as a result of disciplinary problems the boy had, and not just because of what he did with the breakfast pastry.
"Had the student chewed his cereal bar into the shape of a cat and ran around the room, disrupting the classroom and making 'meow' cat sounds, the result would have been exactly the same," Nussbaum wrote, according to the Post.
Nice! Tension between muslims and non muslims is getting worse all the time...and these greedy bastards are willing to drive another wedge in with this frivolous suit. $#@! them right in their 100% worthless asses.
I found it interesting that, in the complaint, Clockhmed is identified as "African-American." While technically true, as Sudan is in Africa, most of its inhabitants are Arab. Clockhmed is clearly of Arab descent.
It's becoming aggrieved minority musical chairs, or bingo, or something.
I've been in tech for 15 years and busting my ass as a masters student for 2 of those while juggling being a father, husband and $#@! just to be in a position to get a chance at interviewing with companies like Twitter and Amazon. Beyond the stupid lawsuit, the fact this dumb $#@! kid who disassembled cheap electronics like I did at ten years old gets to walk right into places like that is more aggravating to me than the gifts, money or fame.
Why did they come back from Qatar? Maybe they missed air conditioning?
