The Texas police department at the center of the Muslim-clock-inside-a-box controversy wants to bottle-up information that would help the public decide if Texas teachers and police were unfair to the Muslim boy who brought a suspected hoax-bomb to school — or if Texans were smeared as haters by progressives and President Barack Obama.
Department officials want to keep the information from the public because they’re facing a possible lawsuit by two lawyers working with the boy’s father and his political advisors at the jihad-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, a source told Breitbart News.
The information could include details about the boy’s answers to police when they asked him if his bizarre and hazardous device was a hoax-bomb, rather than a uselessly dismantled clock, as he claimed.
Under normal circumstances, the police department releases information to the media no later than 10 days after a request for it. But the police department is asking Texas’ Attorney General for an exemption because of the expected lawsuit.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will decide whether to grant the exemption to the police department.
Some information is also being hidden by the parents of the boy, Ahmed Mohamed.
The school can’t release additional information because the Sudanese parents of the boy have not signed the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, either for the boy or his older sister, Lesley Weaver, a spokeswoman for the district told Breitbart.
On Sept. 14, the boy, Ahmed, brought his device — a dismantled, 120-volt clock packed inside a school box — to show off to his teachers. The device included an unshielded transformer that could electrocute people who reached inside the box.
Subsequently, according to Florida entrepreneur Mark Cuban, the boy showed his strange device to as many as six teachers until one finally called the cops. At least one teacher warned him the device would alarm teachers.
Media reports described the arrest as unfair discrimination of the Muslim kids, despite national sensitivity about disruptive behavior by boys in schools.
In May, two Muslims tried to machine-gun an art exhibition in nearby Garland, only 20 miles away from Irving. The two jihadis were successfully killed by guards hired in expectation that local Muslims would implement their ideology’s jihad doctrine.
Two days later, after the boy’s detention, President Barack Obama intervened — and boosted the activists’ claims of racism by Texas officials. Obama praised the boy and his useless clock-in-a-box and invited him to the White House for an October event. “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great,” Obama tweeted.
In 2009, Obama promised “to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
Since Obama choose to transform the local school-discipline issue into a worldwide Do-Americans-hate-Muslims? controversy, the boy and his family have received many gifts, plus much praise from American and foreign leaders.
The family is scheduled to meet with Muslim foreign leaders at the United Nations on Sept. 24, and then proceed to Saudi Arabia, where they will be welcomed by Muslim leaders.
Since 2001, several thousand Americans have been murdered or killed by Muslims, who justify their actions by citing the jihad commandments in the religion’s Koran book.
