Ahmed was arrested and interrogated without being allowed to phone his parents, which is illegal because he is a minor. Some have argued that the only reason Ahmed was treated in this way is because he is Muslim. The police are denying this was a motivation in their investigation. Since the incident everyone from Donald Trump to Sarah Palin, to Mark Zuckerberg have weighed in on the issue. Zuckerberg actually offered Ahmed a job at Facebook and President Obama has invited him to the White House.
What are your thoughts? Do you think that Ahmed was treated differently because of his religion? Or do you think that because of the numerous attacks on schools over the past several years, that the school did the right thing... as the saying goes, "it's better to be safe than sorry."
