Shit For Brains

No, this post is not about Donald Trump:

"Texas police have confirmed that they will not press charges, but have not apologised to [14-year-old high school student] Ahmed [Mohamed] or his family. Irving police spokesman James McLellan suggested to local station WFAA that Ahmed had not been forthcoming enough during his interrogation: 'We attempted to question the juvenile about what it was and he would simply, only tell us that it was a clock.' This was because - as CNN has noted since - it was a clock. During questioning, officers repeatedly brought up his last name, Ahmed said..." (Boy's arrest over homemade clock sparks outrage, Nick O'Malley, Sydney Morning Herald, 18/9/15)

Now if only Ahmed Mohamed had been a white nerd with a name like Alan McLellan...
