Apple, Facebook, and Football: tibets Reporter wears grape costume to defend boy suspended for banana suit captain-price-official: shatterstag: gaymergirls: basedheisenberg: Real recognizes real. I finally got curious and decided to google this story, and the headline is just the tip of the iceberg.ย  Let it never be said again that journalism is a humorless business. Covering an odd tale about a 14-year-old autistic boy who was handcuffed by police and suspended for running down the sidelines of a high school football game at halftime wearing a banana costume, Washington, D.C. reporter Pat Collins donned a grape suit and went out to get his story. Speaking to Bryan Thompson, who pulled the prank on Sept. 14 and found himself at the center of a controversy over the schoolโ€™s response, Collinsโ€™ sarcastic outrage seemed palpable. โ€œSchool officials accused him of being disruptive and disrespectful,โ€ Collins said. โ€œFrankly, I donโ€™t see what all the fuss is about.โ€ He asked the student: โ€œWhy a banana? Why not a โ€ฆ grape?โ€ โ€œI donโ€™t know,โ€ Thompson replied. โ€œPotassium is great.โ€ Following the prank, Colonial Forge High School Principal Karen Spillman suspended Thompson for 10 days, and even recommended that he be kicked out of school for the entire year. Shortly thereafter, Thompson had composed his own rap song about the incident (called โ€œFree Banana Man!โ€), set up a Facebook page dedicated to โ€œBanana Man,โ€ and someone even launched a petition calling for his suspension to be lifted. Thompsonโ€™s outrage at the punishment was shared by his fellow students, who began creating yellow t-shirts that read, โ€œFree Banana Man!โ€ So the school did what schools so often do when their authority is challenged: they banned the shirts, began confiscating them, and sent students to detention for supporting their classmate. Thatโ€™s when the American Civil Liberties Union got involved, telling the principal that her actions were unconstitutional. โ€œBut when you think about it, you might see [the schoolโ€™s] point,โ€ Collins jokingly concluded. โ€œIt starts with a banana. Then, all of the sudden, you have an apple, and an orange, and maybe a grape! And before you know it, you have fruit salad in the schools! We canโ€™t have that.โ€ The schoolโ€™s principal was ultimately forced to resign, and Thompson has since returned to his studies. [x] NICE โ€œI donโ€™t know,โ€ Thompson replied. โ€œPotassium is great.โ€

Heโ€™s 6 years old ffsโ€ฆI canโ€™t More infuriating info: The boy is autistic The boy and his father were in a truck The father stopped the vehicle and raised his arms to show he was unarmed ONE OF THE ARRESTED OFFICERS WAS ACTIVELY STALKING THE FATHERโ€™S FIANCE They are trying to claim self defense AND claim they didnโ€™t know there was a child in the truck They fired โ€œno less than 18 roundsโ€ into the truck The father was hit but still alive. The boy ended up being shot in the head multiple times. There is bodycam footage of the incident and every official/lawyer that has seen and spoken on it has called it horrific. 50% of all police violence victims are autistic or mentally ill. If an autistic person starts screaming or canโ€™t look a cop in the eyes, they use that as an excuse to shoot. I hope Black Lives Matter starts talking about that, too. Police violence hurts the mentally ill a lot and of course that also means black autistic / mentally ill kids are getting hurt and killed. Ableism is deadly. I agree with the sentiments above, I just want to give an update here since Tumblr doesnโ€™t do timestamps. The shooting was in 2015. Stafford was found guilty of manslaughter and is serving 40 years. Greenhouse pleaded guilty to negligent homicide and malfeasance in office and is serving 7 years total. Not enough but at least there was some semblance of justice done. Fucking hell.

Amazon, Apple, and Facebook: did you know?. In 2017, a black lab got his photo in the Stafford High School yearbook. Alpha was student AJ Schalk's service dog, so 'all they had to do was lower the camera on picture day, and Alpha ended up with his own school photo. He's saved AJ's life many times by alerting him if his blood sugar gets low, and he comes to school so often, they even gave him his own ID.
