You be the judge of this event that everyone already agrees was mishandled.

You can now see a photo of Ahmed Mohamed's clock, now the most famous clock in the history of clocks after Big Ben because Ahmed was arrested for bringing it to high school

The police in Irving, Texas released the photo of the "suspicious device" today to show the American people just exactly how bomb-looking the clock wasn't (after being disassembled to achieve maximum suspiciousness). The police also said that the student would not be charged with bringing a "hoax" bomb to school, a law that nearly everyone heard of for the first time today.
