Muslim teen takes a clockwork device to school. Disappointingly, it turns out to be a clock, which is what he said it was. Authorities arrest him, want to charge him with making a fake bomb because look what he made them do by being a Muslim with a clockwork device.

Thanx to Metafilter

ETA: President Obama tweeted: "Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great." I assume we will hear from differently sane persons who consider it further evidence that Obama is a Muslim.

I am pretty flabbergasted that anybody would consider accusing him of a "bomb hoax" when there. was. no. hoax. That seems an essential part of a bomb hoax, no matter what biases you're carrying.

Really wish the Republican debate had asked "would you invite Ahmed to your White House like President Obama did?"

I’m not surprised. I’ve read stories like this before; authorities have taken to using the word “hoax” as a way of accusing innocent people of criminal intent.
