Unless you live under a rock, you know the story of the Texas kid who brought a homemade clock to school Despite being aware that this device was a clock, having diligently questioning the kid and his maintaining that it was a clock, despite his science teacher finding that it was a clock, it appeared to be a clock, a clock is not a prohibited item (many people wear them on their wrists and there are typically clocks on the wall of every classroom) and this kid is apparently an engineering student and has been learning about digital technology you know, the bits and pieces that go into a clock the school decided that his clock was dangerous and in fact might be a bomb so they both suspended him and reported to the cops that he had brought a possible bomb on campus. But wait They didnt evacuate the school (as you would if you thought someone had a bomb; after all, if you think its a bomb you dont want innocent people to get blown up and die, right?) They didnt take the suspected bomb away from the student (so he couldnt set off said suspected bomb.) They didnt call the bomb squad (like, for instance, you would if you thought there was a bomb so it could be defused.) They did put both him and the device in an office (which isnt what youd do if you thought it was a bomb.) Then they waited with him for the cops to show up (which of course, youd do if you think youre about to be blown up.) Riiiiiiight. From where I sit and the known facts of this incident it appears the ISD made what appears to be a knowing false report of a felony criminal act (claiming that they suspected the kid had a bomb), they caused him to be arrested, they suspended him for possessing a non-dangerous and non-banned item and then they sent home a letter ducking all of this instead of taking responsibility for their false report and apologizing. Lets be clear: It is against the law to make a false police report. It is also against the law to subject someone to arrest when you know, or have reason to know, that the alleged crime you accused them of never occurred. Therefore, since the people who made that report had every reason to believe that the item the kid possessed was in fact a clock and not a bomb, such is evident from their actions, and yet they caused him to be arrested without cause (and incidentally, the cops refused to charge him as they had no reason to do so) I want to know why everyone involved in the report within that school is not right now under arrest for false imprisonment (of the kid) and filing a false police report.
