Behind bars instead of rewards – Ahmed’s clock story!

“The heart breaking story of a 14 year old kid who was put behind bars for making a clock”

A 14 year old kid from the MacArthur High School was allegedly arrested for bringing a ‘bomb’ to class and later the police department released the kid with no charges against him. With all this drama happening, the support that this kid has got has been humongous! From leading CEO’s and Presidents supporting him, life can only get better for the little champ.


This incident happened during an English class at MacArthur High School where Ahmed’s digital clock which he made at home started beeping. When he showed it to his teacher, her intelligence confirmed that it was a bomb and was handed over to the police who even brilliantly took the boy to the detention center for interrogation.

Imagine the emotions that the kid would go through! He was sent to school with a lunch box packed and was received from the detention center after the charges were dropped.

After this news broke out, it started trending world wide on all social networking platforms. This is what the President of the United States of America had to say:
