    So the government, FBI and all other law enforcement officials want us to be vigilant and report any suspicious behavior. Yet, when it is reported the “person of suspicion” then sues. You can’t make this stuff up. Only in America.

    I wonder what would have happened if he was just your average white boy… If he had brought a small briefcase full of spurious looking elements that looked an awful lot like a BOMB and presented it to the teacher, would he have gotten the same reaction. (sent to the office, arrested, etc) Anyway, why is it worth $15M for his “pain and suffering”? It’s totally RIDICULOUS!!! A public apology, certainly, if it was proven he wasn’t trying to “send a jihad message” or intimidate anyone. BUT FIFTEEN MILLION DOLLARS!!? What the hell, man!?
