All started with arrest of a young man at school for a hand-made, digital clock brought to school. Ended up not being that hand-made, was just some reassembly of some parts. Not much interesting, actually.
It caught attention due to alledged racism or religion issues (still to be confirmed?). Even the White House and President of USA have spoken on behalf of this young, intelligent man.
Which apparently was not that intelligent, techically speaking.
And now he seeks damages of, what ? 15 million ?
I would agree if he'd seek for 5 to 10K. But even then, after all publicity he got around him, probably not so much.
There's a word for what he (his family) is seeking. The word is "extorsion".
He had it (a plausible reason). He lost it. Nohing more to see here, really.
