Do not charge Ahmed Mohamed for being a genius!

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, from Irving, Texas, made a clock in 20 minutes. He was excited and took the clock to show his teachers at MacArthur High School. His teacher responded by calling the police.
Ahmed was arrested and treated this way because of his name and the color of his skin. If he were John Smith and white, he would have been embraced for the genius he is. Instead, he was handcuffed, fingerprinted, and had his mugshot taken, all without his parents present.
The whole time, he insisted it was just a simple homemade clock. The Irving Police Department is still considering charges against Ahmed.
