Kent WA student Brings his home made phone to school and gets arrested
KENT WA - An 11 year old student at Kent Middle School was inspired by Ahmed Mohamed who recently brought a home made clock to school and was quickly given job offers, an outcry of praise and even an invitation from the white house to meet the president. Shawn Alexander of Kent Middle School was hoping for the same amount of attention for bringing his home made phone to school.
Shawn was arrested and is currently waiting for social media to come rescue him, give him job offers and hopefully get to meet the president.
Shawn admits his homemade phone was really just an actual AK-47 but assumes this is no different than the bomb replica 'clock' that Ahmed Mohamed brought to school.
Ahmed Mohamed has reached out to Shawn in hopes to meet with him so they can share their inventions. Ahmed has expressed interest in a possible trade between his clock and Shawn's phone.
