At Least Use the Right Excuse!

November 24, 2015

The boy whose clock got him arrested at an Irving, Texas school is now suing the school district and the city for $15 million.

One of the reasons cited: his “reputation in the global community is permanently scarred.”

Scarred how? By the online support he received, by the offers to visit the White House, the United Nations, Google’s Science Fair and Facebook headquarters?

I can think of several reasons for suing (though not for $15 million). But not that one.

If you’re going for the sympathy vote in order to cash in, at least make it sound plausible.
