Even more revealingly, the muslim family has now refused to allow the Irving PD to release the video of his police interviews, wherein the police claim he was combative and non-cooperative:
Last night, Irving Texas Mayor Beth Van Duyne revealed that the family of Ahmed Mohammed has repeatedly refused to meet with city officials, refused to released records exonerating police conduct, and that President Obama had tweeted about the case even before pictures of the so-called “clock” were publicly available. [Remember, Daddy Mohammed named his trucking company “Twin Towers Transportation” as a kind of FU to the entire nation.]
Appearing on Glenn Beck’s The Blaze TV, Van Duyne noted how reporting on the interaction between Mohammed and police had been remarkably one-sided, in part because the Mohammed family refused to release records noting:
“As a juvenile, they can not release those records. The school district, a number of times, has asked the family, to release the records, so that you can have the balanced story out there. The family is ignoring the request from the ISD.”
Van Duyne told Beck it would “help to describe why it progressed as it did” if the records were available. “Nobody is going to walk in and say, ‘oh you’re a 14-year old child, you’re totally cooperating, we have all the answers we need, let’s arrest you,’” Van Duyne added.
A spokesperson for the Irving Police Department has said there have been multiple open records requests for the full police reporting, but that those requests remained in the hands of the city’s legal advisor. The available police report describes the event only as, “…Arrestee being in possession of a hoax bomb at MacArthur High School.”
Van Duyne said that according to the information she had seen, Mohammed had been “non-responsive” and “passive aggressive” in response to questions from police officers.
The refusal to amiably resolve the situation continued as the family rushed to bring Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) representatives into the case, and repeatedly cancelled meetings with the school district and city officials before finally speaking to the media…..[let me re-phrase that: purposefully stalled for time while CAIR organized a media circus. Thus they had a tweet set up from our first muslim president that went out just minutes after the story broke]
…….“At the exact same time they were supposed to be meeting with us, they were on their front lawn with a press conference,“ she said…….
………the Mohammed family were members of a mosque tied to an Irving Sharia Tribunal which Mayor Van Duyne had publicly opposed. [Which would be another strong motivation to stage this thing, to both darken the reputation of the city and to try to force them to allow the sharia court]
So now the family, probably under CAIR’s direction (is the white woman seen directing the Mohammed family photo ops dressed in hijab a creature of CAIR?), is being “conciliatory,” saying they don’t blame the school but “political figures who have created a charged environment,” surely a reference to the Irving mayor who blocked the sharia law court. Man, how badly do they want that thing?!? Apparently, pretty danged badly. It also contains a certain potential threat of lawsuit – as in, if the political environment does not change, they may pursue lawfare against the district.
The family has already pulled the boy out of Irving schools and will probably move out of Irving shortly. Wow……we’ll really miss them.
This is exactly what kabuki theater looks like. The mainstream media doesn’t even halfway fake an interest in the truth anymore, it’s all about sensationalizing the leftist narrative. What a crock.
