Loretta Lynch defends Muslims and announces investigation in arrest of Texas 'clock kid'
by Timothy M. Phelps
Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch, speaking to the American Muslim community just a day after the attacks in San Bernardino, announced Thursday night that the Justice Department will investigate the arrest of a 14-year-old Muslim boy for bringing a homemade clock to school in Texas.
The Irving Police Department arrested Ahmed Mohamed in September after school authorities grew suspicious of a clock that Mohamed said he made and brought to school to show his teacher. Authorities suspected it was a bomb.
Ahmed was never charged, but several congressmen asked Lynch for the civil rights investigation she promised Thursday.
