Police REFUSE To Release Video Of Ahmed “Clockboy” Mohamed’s Arrest… Here’s Their Reason
Ahmed “Clockboy” Mohamed was the kid who brought a homemade clock to school that looked like a bomb and then played the role of innocent boy when the cops put him in handcuffs.
According to the tech-news site Motherboard, the Irving, Texas, police have video of the time when Mohamed was in custody of the police at the station. The police department hasn’t released the video, and the Texas Attorney General’s Office has been backing it up.
When Motherboard sought the release of the video, the Texas Attorney General’s Office ruled that it could be kept from the public, citing privacy concerns and Mohamed’s juvenile status.
“Law enforcement records and files concerning a child and information stored, by electronic means or otherwise, concerning the child from which a record or file could be generated may not be disclosed to the public,” Assistant Attorney General Paige Lay wrote, according to Motherboard.
The attorney general’s ruling explained that the city had given legal grounds for withholding the video from release.
“The city explains that some of the submitted information details procedures to be followed in the event of a bomb threat as well as investigative processes and informant information relating to specific bomb threats and the investigation of suspects in a bomb threat,” Lay wrote.
“Upon review, we find the city has demonstrated release of the information at issue would interfere with law enforcement.”
