Blown out of Proportion
30D Blogging Challenge

This week in Texas, a fourteen-year-old Muslim boy was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school ...his teachers mistook the item for a bomb. Was this the right move, or did the teachers in question blow this situation too far out of proportion? Are we now erring on the side of too much caution?


I hate to admit this but I am basing this answer purely on what I have seen and heard through social media and national media. We all know that these two sources do not always represent the total truth of a situation. I whole-heartedly believe this incident was blown hugely out of proportion! If the teacher truly believed she had been threatened and that the student had made a bomb what would her first reaction be? I think it would have been to evacuate the school. From what I have seen, and I admit to having not seen it all, the student was arrested or at least taken into custody at the school. Shouldn't the other students have been taken away from the situation? I think this was totally an example of hate mongering and profiling!
