I feel like people may get mad but I found it funny
@MintHippo, I thought it was funny, just bad timing. Probably because they took his clock.
@MintHippo, I laughed hard at the picture, laughed harder at your comment then laughed even harder at The Handlebars comment. I love this app
@MintHippo, I don't know what's funny about beating a dead horse
@MintHippo, idk isn't the fuse part the clock? Or am I thinking of old timey ones where the fuse was a time delay, which is what the clock is. Also I probably didn't find it funny because of that inconsistency, but Handlebar completely made up for it, that was hilarious!!
@BunnyGruff, fuse for a bomb
@MintHippo, ya, they may blow up on you.
@MintHippo, HOW DARE YOU! just kidding I thought it was pretty good too x)
@The Handlebar , THEY TOOK HIS CLOCK
@The Handlebar , such clock blockers
He didn't get called out because of racial profiling. That kid's clock looked like a ducking bomb and was in a briefcase
@Baboo the Ocelot, he didn't even build the dang thing. He took apart an old clock and taped it to a briefcase.
@knight of shift, clock lives matter.
@dusty44, true Dat.
@Princess Kenu, *explodes into space and time*
His neck looks unnaturally long on the left....
This is hilarious. It's never too soon.
When you build a bomb but it's actually a clock and they don't go nuts
Bomb, just without anything to cause an explosion... and so threatening no evacuation was called, no bomb squad... because if they really thought it was a bomb they would have risked their and everyone else's lives. Yeah that makes sense.
@TheMonkeyGod, they thought it was suspicious, and the kid refused to explain. Maybe do some research next time?
@knight of shift, he said it was a clock. What more can he explain. I did my research. If they had thought it suspicious they would have responded differently. How do we deal with suspicious packages? Not by keeping everyone close.
@TheMonkeyGod, no he didn't, he refused to explain. He brought a suspicious item, and refused to give an explanation. Kids dad's even a Muslim activist. They did it for attention from people like you.
@knight of shift, yeah... you watch Fox right?
@TheMonkeyGod, no, I actually don't. But sure act like this poor innocent child, who brought a suit case clock, which he didn't make BTW, was just a victim of horrible racial profiling. Ignoring his father's activism, and a similar issue with his sister. But yeah I don't even have cable. So...
@knight of shift, I didn't mention racial profiling. But the teachers 100% did not act like this was a real threat. The police didn't act like it was a real threat. No one acted like it was real. They were trying to upset him and it back fired.
@TheMonkeyGod, no they were showing proper caution for a suspicious item. Bombs squads are not called in for every suspicious item. Also by the tune police were called it was because of his refusal to explain what it was and why he had it.
@knight of shift, proper caution? Carry the device with you to the principal, show the police, yep keep hold of it. No we don't need anyone with expertise to look at it. No we really don't need to keep anyone away from this very threatening device. Have you heard of logic? It fails the logic test. Logically, if it is a suspicious device you will isolate it and keep people away from it until it's nature can be ascertained. Your not going to parade it through a populated area. I'm not saying he wasn't trying to create a situation, but the teachers and police decided to one up him, and screwed up.
@TheMonkeyGod, one up him? God you're dim .
@knight of shift, I'm dim? You who thinks that if you had a suspicious device the correct protocol is to hold on to it for a few hours and keep people close to it, is calling me cum because I noticed the police and teachers acted inappropriately in accordance to what to do if you have a suspected explosive device and also how the police acted inappropriately in questioning the kids without a parent or guardian/representative present. Yeah, yeah... cool. Oh and do you know the old saying about people who resort to name calling are the ones who know they have lost a debate? Goes that they can't fight the person's argument so the seek to belittle the person. Quite interesting.
@TheMonkeyGod, yeah I didn't read that rant. Sorry ya wasted your time. 😄
@TheMonkeyGod, you know, I'm extremely left wing with more issues, but this one just has too many signs pointing to the kid trying to stir the bottom of the pot. Say what you want about the procedures taken, the fact is the kid brought in a clock that looked like a bomb (seriously, a clock could have been compacted into something much smaller) and then acted as though he was entitled to not explain what it was. As a white male, if I would have done the smell thing, same clock, etc. I would have explained what it was if it was questionable.
@knight of shift, Oh good you're illiterate
@DeadStroke, yes after reading his previous statements,and responding with coherent statements,im illiterate. Got me there...
@knight of shift, you should read it. Decent points
@DeadStroke, I just read it, just more ranting about his previous one point. Then he noted the strawman argument, which would have had merit if he didn't try to insinuate that I watched for news based on my political opinions. He broke the "rules" of debate first. And in regards to his "point" it goes no where. My points showed what the boy did wrong. His points about procedure were pointless.
@Manny Machado, thank you, people act like it's a matter of left vs right. When really it's just common sense and perception vs political correctness and over reactions.
@DeadStroke, no, there weren't any good points.
They didn't think it was a bomb. They thought it was a fake bomb, the term the police used was a "Hollywood bomb".
Which is illegal by the way, making a fake bomb and carrying it around is basically making a bomb threat, which is a felony in most states.
@talmet, on the inside of the suitcase, it had electrical leads just hanging there, not connected to anything.
@Manny Machado, I'm not saying he wasn't. But the other point is still valid. He got the reaction he wanted, and it was undertaken so badly that it kind of validated his point. As opposed to the Knight of Shifts view that only one point can be valid, I'm holding that both are. The kid pulled a stunt. Those in authority not only played into it, but did so in such a way as to make the situation so ridiculous that it made the point the kid was aiming at. Best approach, accept it is a clock and give the kid a low grade for a sh!t project. Again the statement made that protocols not being followed is the issue. They knew it wasn't a bomb. He knew it wasn't a bomb. He wanted to screw with them, they knew that, they decided to try and screw him but screwed up. He did the initial 'wrong' thing. Everything that followed was completely the fault of those in authority. Nothing was done by the book. Nothing. So they screwed up bigger because they were doing it to a kid. They goofed.
@talmet, so he should have been arrested and charged with a felony offense... yet he wasn't... and again no protocols for dealing with a possible explosive device were followed. No one thought it was an explosive. He played the game well and the authority people lost because they lost their cool and decided to try and play the big man card.
@Azuro, what's you're point? They didn't think it was a real bomb. They thought it was a fake bomb, which is making a bomb threat, which is a crime.
@TheMonkeyGod, no protocols for explosives were followed because nobody thought it was a real bomb. They thought it was a fake bomb. Get it, fake. You don't need to follow explosive protocols for a fake bomb, because there is no explosive.
Should he have been charged? I don't know the law in Texas. Maybe he should have, maybe not. Also, sometimes when dealing with kids, instead of charging a kid with a felony, you just talk to them and explain that what they did was wrong.
I.e. If a kid kicks another kid, was a crime committed? Yes, that is assault and battery. But it's a kid, so you don't press charges and have he kid thrown in jail.
Calling the cops, getting the kid scared so that he/she understands what could have happened is sometimes necessary. Hell, they made a TV show awhile back where that was the whole premise. It was called scared straight, they would take kids who did something stupid and bring them into jail to show them what could really happen if they kept acting out
@talmet, you've basically argued my point. It was never thought to be a bomb, except that's what the school and police were saying to justify their actions. Which played into exactly what you guys were saying the kid wanted. Yet you all can't see that bit somehow. The police reaction made things worse.
How can you not see this??? Hell, he got to meet your President and got interviews not because he made a sh!tty project, not because he made a fake bomb, but because of the reactions of those in authority. They screwed the pooch.
I'm not justifying what the kid did, though most of you seem to think I am. I'm saying the bigger problem was the response. Which was down right stupid.
@TheMonkeyGod, the first rule is confirmation, that doesn't mean go up and check for explosives it means if it looks like a bomb then treat it as a bomb. Way more indicators that this was a bomb than a clock. But if your so confident in you infinite wisdom maybe we can call you from now on for all suspect ieds?
@dusty44, dear god. That's been my primary point. Authorities didn't act like it was an explosive
@knight of shift, Then congrats on wasting your life
@DeadStroke, dude this was over. Seems like you can't let stuff go. Goodbye
Stuck pixel.. you upload this but you won't upload mine.. that's not fair
That awkward moment when you build an alarm clock but your fabrication and design reacher thinks it's a bomb
@Nikm, I'm not sure this was entirely necessary.
@Nikm, he didn't build it. He took apart an old clock and glued the internals to the inside of a briefcase. Probably to get attention.
That awkward moment when your neck collapses under its own weight
Reminded me of the trouble in Terrorist Town rap...the one by Minx and Boyinaband...that's not too obscure, right?
It's still counting
