WHY DO THEY BULLY?
Bullying is not okay and my heart breaks for Keaton Jones from Tennessee. A message to Keaton, stay strong and don’t let these bastards keep you down. Keaton’s mom, Kimberly Jones said in a Facebook post Friday she had just picked up her son, Keaton, from school because he was too afraid to go to lunch. SAD! Before zero tolerance in schools, I can remember a time and place in a time long ago when one used to be able to defend oneself against bullying with a knuckle sandwich. Don’t you remember that to LB? I can’t say I understand the go fund me page for Keaton. Giving money is not going to stop bullying.
A Tennessee woman’s video of her son’s tearful recounting of being bullied at middle school has prompted a wave of support from athletes and entertainers. One star is even going as far as to reward the young boy in a big way.
The video of Keaton had more than 18 million views as of Sunday, and a crowdsourcing page for his future education has raised more than $29,000.
The post has gone so viral that celebrities far and wide are taking notice and offering their support to young Keaton. However, one star is going above and beyond to reward the young boy for his persevearance. Chris Evans, who will reprise his role as Captain America in the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War,” took to Twitter to not only share his support, but to invite the young boy to Los Angeles for the film’s premiere.
“Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better,” the star wrote. “While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”
Bus Driver Charged with Vehicular Homicide Allegedly Asked Kids Before Crashing Bus In Chattanooga, TN … “Are You Ready To Die”
HE SAID WHAT?
According to reports, 24-year-old bus driver, Johnthony Walker, allegedly asked the children aboard the school bus before crashing it in Chattanooga, Tennessee, ‘if they were ready to die”. What? Walker was arrested Tuesday and charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Police are looking into speed as a possible factor for the accident; however, with the cameras on board and other devices, it is possible that we will know what was said on the bus prior to this horrific accident.
Parents of some of the children who survived a deadly school bus crash in Chattanooga are starting to shed some light on the moments leading up to the crash, which killed five kids and injured more than 20 others.
CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann spoke to a mother who had three children on the bus, one of whom died. The mother says that her other two children told her that just before the crash, the bus driver asked the children if they were ready to die.
“The mother says that in the moments before the crash, the bus driver said something to the effect of ‘Are you all ready to die?’ and then seconds later, the bus was on its side and five kids were killed,” said Strassmann.

The Unconstitutional President Continues … Obama Administration Forces Transgender Bathroom Rules on Every School in America … Or Else!
THE THUG IN CHIEF FORCES TRANSGENDER BATHROOM RULES ON EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL IN AMERICA, OR ELSE …
What the hell happened to the country I grew up in and what happened to presidents taking oaths to uphold the U.S. Constitution? Barack Obama, bypassing the people, and the states, and the courts, has once again exercising executive authority to enforce his leftist ideologue will and vision on “We the People” and America. The New York Times is reporting that Obama will issue a “decree” ordering all public schools in the country to allow “transgender students” to use the bathroom and locker room of their choice. Hmm, so much for State’s rights. Now Obama is looking to rewrite laws himself and threaten states by withholding federal funding if they do not comply.
A note to parents, the Obama administration will order every public school in America on Friday to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms and locker rooms of the opposite sex. In essence this is creating coed bathrooms and locker rooms. UNREAL.
The Obama administration is planning to issue a sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.
A letter to school districts will go out Friday, adding to a highly charged debate over transgender rights in the middle of the administration’s legal fight with North Carolina over the issue. The declaration — signed by Justice and Education department officials — will describe what schools should do to ensure that none of their students are discriminated against.
It does not have the force of law, but it contains an implicit threat: Schools that do not abide by the Obama administration’s interpretation of the law could face lawsuits or a loss of federal aid.
The move is certain to draw fresh criticism, particularly from Republicans, that the federal government is wading into local matters and imposing its own values on communities across the country that may not agree. It represents the latest example of the Obama administration using a combination of policies, lawsuits and public statements to change the civil rights landscape for gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people.
As stated at Red State, “So they cannot be required to use the bathroom of their genetic, physical gender, and moreover, cannot be required to use private or individual bathrooms which would avoid everyone’s discomfort. The decree is that if you’re a 12 year old girl, there may be a penis next to you in the bathroom. But don’t you dare complain.”
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS WORLD COMING TO … AND LIBS THINK DODGE BALL IS DANGEROUS.
A Dayton elementary school, female, 2nd grade student was stabbed Friday on the playground at her school in Dayton, Ohio. The incident took place at the World of Wonder PreK-8 school at 4411 Oakridge Drive. The 7 year old female student suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Dayton Children’s Hospital. The suspect is described as a black male, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10, and between 18 to 20 years of age. He was wearing athletic shorts, sweatshirt, and an orange T-shirt.
My first questions is, in this day and age, how does anyone just walk onto a play ground when kids are at recess? One would think that schools would have measures in place to prevent these types of things. Do we never learn? Listen to the confusion in the video below of the 911 call. Damn, you would think a sccool would have a more organized standard operation than this.
A Dayton elementary school student was stabbed on the playground Friday afternoon by an adult, school officials say.
The second-grade student was on the playground of the World of Wonder school on Oakridge Drive in the city’s Residence Park neighborhood, WHIO reports.
The incident occurred during recess, and the adult male who stabbed the girl trespassed on school property, the Dayton Daily News reports. It’s unclear if he is in police custody.
School officials found the girl face down on the playground, according to the Dayton Daily News.
The preliminary investigation suggests that a male walked onto the playground about 1:30 p.m. and stabbed the girl, then left the area headed toward Kammer Avenue.
“A man stabbed somebody,” a school secretary told 9-1-1 dispatchers. “They stabbed them on the playground.”
During the same call, another employee is heard telling the secretary how the victim was doing.
“She’s laying face down and the police are here,” the employee said.
The school was placed on lockdown. Students were dismissed just before 4 p.m.
Principal LaDawn Mims-Morrow, in a letter sent to families of World of Wonder students, said, “a trespasser entered our playground during recess today and assaulted one of our students. The incident is being actively investigated by Dayton police, who are pursuing a lead.
