Ahmed Mohamed, Texas Teen Arrested for Clock, Becomes Issue At GOP Debate

Mohamed, 14, was taken into custody on Monday at MacArthur High School in Texas.

Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was taken into custody on Monday at MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas after a digital clock he crafted himself was mistaken for a bomb by school officials.

"I don't think a 14-year-old should ever get arrested for bringing a clock to school,” Jindal said. “I'm glad that police are careful."

The Louisiana governor went on to criticize the Muslim community for not doing enough to "denounce violence."

"The biggest discrimination is going on against Christian business owners and individuals who believe in traditional forms of marriage. They are throwing this woman in jail in Kentucky. Let's talk about that," said Jindal in a reference to Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
