The clock kid now at center of culture war rumble

The bomb clock in question

...Was the clock meant to look like a bomb? Was it Islamophobic to ask why it looked the way it looked? — leaped the cranks, the conspiracy theorists, the hashtaggers and the anti-hashtaggers. Sure, the clock had been seized by authorities — but why were there no images of it functioning? Why had no teacher offered a second-by-second account of how what seemed like a non-event so quickly resulted in Ahmed’s arrest? And why was his father always running for president of Sudan?...

See the top-rated comment, it even identifies it as Radio Shack. Thread descends into lefty insanity defending the MSM narrative.
