Ahmed Mohamed's Family Wants Something That Will Leave You Shocked!

Ahmed Mohamed became famous worldwide a while back due to his school being threatened by his homemade clock. He was wrongly accused of bringing a homemade bomb to class. The incident raised a lot of discussions about Islamophobia, discrimination, and acceptance of minorities in the United States. Likewise, many people realized how wronged Ahmed was, so since then, he was granted scholarships, a lot of expensive gadgets, and the opportunity to meet face-to-face with some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world. But now, there's seem to be something that would negatively affect Ahmed's reputation as a kid genius.

$15,000,000

$15,000,000

That's right. Ahmed and his family are reportedly seeking as much as $15 million in compensation since that is supposedly the amount of damage the incident has done to the family. Doesn't that just seem a bit too greedy, especially since Ahmed has already several scholarships, job opportunities, and expensive gadgets gifted to him freely?

Demanding An Apology

Demanding An Apology

Aside from the whopping $15 million, Ahmed and his family also want a written apology from the mayor and the police chief since Ahmed was arrested. Maybe the global outrage and shame is more than enough without a written apology, don't you think?

Taking Civil Action

Taking Civil Action

Apparently, if the Irving School District and the City of Irving do not agree to pay $15 million to the family and provide a written apology, they would be filing a civil action lawsuit.

Ahmed's Civil Rights

Ahmed's Civil Rights

The letters of the family sent by Laney and Bollinger law firm noted that the school and the police have impeded the civil rights of Ahmed. Moreover, the parents apparently had experienced physical and mental pain. But is that really worth $15 million?

Within 60 Days

Within 60 Days

Ahmed's family wants the $15 million compensation given within 60 days. $10 million from the City of Irving, and $5 from the school district. Again, isn't that just too much? It'd be only okay if the family then donated all of the money to a worthy cause, say, for example, an organization helping poor children learn how to code, do math, and enjoy science.
