Texas Gov: Ahmed Arrest Not Cool


Texas Governor Greg AbbottTexas Governor Greg Abbott denounced the arrest of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed Thursday. “The last thing we want to do is put handcuffs on a kid unjustifiably,” he said. ”

Just call this a tragic situation. It looks like the commitment to law enforcement may have gone too far and didn’t balance all the facts.” He said he appreciated Mohamed’s penchant for inventing. “I admire those with ingenuity and we’re trying to make Texas the state of innovation, where we promote young minds to achieve things like that,” Abbott said. Read more at The Dallas Morning News.

  1. The object that Ahmed took to school did indeed look like a bomb, at least it looked enough of a bomb to regular folks with no military training, enough to cause a panic and stampede. When police questioned Ahmed, he could not claim it was a clock since it did not remotely look like a clock, and hence was arrested for trying to scare the public with a faux bomb. The clock picture that was shown in the media was not what he actually brought to school. None of it matters: our idiot in chief has already invited the young son he would have had to the white house.

  2. #1 Hal,

    Abbott a left wing Liberal???

    I want some of what you are smoking!!!

    Abbott himself was Attorney General of Texas in 2004 when the state executed a man who was almost certainly innocent of the crime for which he was executed.

  3. Oh please. I was bored to death with these electronic projects in school, once or twice I even wished special forces would have arrested and handcuffed the instructors, but still, I learned something and I am grateful. If Ahmed enjoys digital electronics good for him and I wish him a successful career, as for the apologies that’s the very least that could be done. If stupid people should panic because of those little black boxes that some people wear, those that look like communication devices or possibly detonators, how would we feel? And – may it never come to that – would we not be outraged at any arrest? Would we not demand apologies and perhaps dismissal of a few police officers?
