Feds investigating ex-school district of student in clock incident

This will be fun to watch http://www.chron.com/news/article/Feds-investigating-ex-school-district-of-student-6697228.php

DALLAS—The Department of Justice has launched a civil rights investigation into charges of harassment and possible religious discrimination in the school district where 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed was handcuffed after bringing a clock to school in September.

"We have, as you may know, opened an investigation into the case of the young man in Irving, Texas," U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday evening during a televised interview with a Muslim advocacy group. "So we will see where that investigation goes."

A Justice Department official elaborated for The Dallas Morning News, via email, that "the Civil Rights Division has an investigation into the Irving School District regarding both harassment and the discipline of students on the basis of race, religion and national origin."

The investigation does not target Irving City Hall, whose police officers questioned, handcuffed and charged Ahmed with making a "hoax bomb" after his principal pulled him out of class. But it raises the possibility that federal authorities will probe not just the ninth-grader's treatment that day, but allegations that he was harassed for years in middle school because he is Muslim.

The news has rippled through Irving, which has been in the news near-constantly over tensions with its Islamic community.

"I'm overjoyed," said Anthony Bond, a friend of Ahmed's family for years. "That so-called hoax bomb clock boy incident is part of a much bigger problem ... He was harassed, he was Muslim-bashed for his whole three years in Sam Houston (Middle School) and it obviously continued into MacArthur High."

1. Another joke

 

The police Department admitted that they it was not a bomb when they detained him

That's kidnappjng

But The Justice Department refuses to look at how the Police Department handled it

Another disgusting cover up

3. Yes, she is upholding the law and the US Constitution

AG Holder did a great job upholding the law and the US Constitution and I am glad that you agree that AG Lynch is also doing her job

4. you mean her lack of support for the first amendment

while ignoring the fact that most hate crimes in the US are directed at Jews? Where is she when some kid gets expelled or suspended for simply a Star Wars tee shirt?

I'm sorry, a disassembled 30 year old clock taped in a pencil case isn't an "invention", and a WASP would get the same treatment. There is no evidence of discrimination outside of CAIR's propaganda.

No, Ed Meese Holder was a partisan race baiting hack.
