Clock Boy Wants $15 Million in Damages and Apologies for Becoming a TV Star and White House Guest

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 at 12:55 pm

Didn’t this little punk move to Qatar? We thought so the day after he met Obama, but we guess he’s still looking for a pay day.

Attorneys for the family of Ahmed Mohamed, the Irving high school student who made international headlines after being arrested earlier this year for bringing a homemade clock to school, have sent letters to both the city of Irving and the Irving School District demanding apologies and $15 million in damages.

Both letters claim that Mohamed’s civil rights were violated, and he and his family have suffered physical and mental anguish because of the ordeal.

The letters claim Ahmed was singled out “because of his race, national origin, and religion.”

“Ahmed never threatened anyone, never caused harm to anyone, and never intended to,” read the letter to the city. “The only one who was hurt that day was Ahmed, and the damages he suffered were not because of oversight or incompetence. The school and city officials involved knew what they needed to do to protect Ahmed’s rights. They just decided not to do it.”

The letters demand $10 million be paid to the family by the city of Irving, and $5 million from the school district.

The family also wants written apologies from Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne, “acknowledging that she has never been presented with any evidence that Ahmed was a ‘pawn’ in any ‘civilization jihad’ or that the events here were planned by Ahmed’s family or friends as part of an ‘influence operation.'”

They also want apologies from the school district, as well as Police Chief Larry Boyd, saying Mohamed “never intended to threaten anyone, and that his detention, interrogation, and arrest were wrongful and were made at a point in time when there was no reasonable suspicion to believe that Ahmed had committed a crime or was about to commit any crime.”

Awfully demanding. Hope they’re told to go fuck themselves. But don’t anyone think bad thoughts or you’ll be an Islamophobe. Meanwhile, look at how much he’s suffering here:

    If the school doesn’t settle, will be interesting to see what comes out in discovery. I think this might enable the school/police to show things they couldn’t show because the family refused to sign a release due to the kid being a minor. I hope they don’t settle.

  2. DoJ or DoE will get involved on 23/23/15 at 3:18 pm

    @ Stacy M – you’re right, that would be interesting. But if any information that will make the Obama Admin look bad were going to come out, I’ll bet the DoE or DoJ will intervene and force a settlement.
