BLACK TEEN FROM FLORIDA CHARGED WITH FELONY AFTER SCIENCE EXPERIMENT GONE WRONG
via Black Girl Dangerous:
CALL TO ACTION: The criminalization of this Black child MUST BE STOPPED. Please read this and then contact the people in charge via the info below! The school-to-prison pipeline is racist and we cannot let it stand.
Update: Riptide spoke to the Polk County School District about why they felt expulsion was a fair punishment for Wilmot. Their response: kids should learn that “there are consequences to their actions.”
We’ve also obtained the police report from the incident. It shows that Wilmot was mixing toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil.
No one got hurt. It just made a noise. Give me a fucking break. Really. This does not deserve a felony charge.
