Wednesday Evening Thread: Free Kiera Wilmot!

FREE KIERA!

By now I’m sure most of you have read about Kiera Wilmot. Just in case, here’s a refresher:

Kiera Wilmot got good grades and had a perfect behavior record. She wasn’t the kind of kid you’d expect to find hauled away in handcuffs and expelled from school, but that’s exactly what happened after an attempt at a science project went horribly wrong.

On 7 a.m. on Monday, the 16 year-old mixed some common household chemicals in a small 8 oz water bottle on the grounds of Bartow High School in Bartow, Florida. The reaction caused a small explosion that caused the top to pop up and produced some smoke. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.

Prosecutors have charged her with several felonies and are considering potentially trying her as an adult. (more here)

Ummm, NO. We will not sit idly by while a bright, well behaved young girl is vilified and demonized for being a curious student of science. Has all common sense left the school administrators and legal authorities in Florida?

This is UNACCEPTABLE.

The State Attorney handling this case is Jerry Hill. He can be reached at  863-534-4800 or email his office here.

The School District Superintendent is Dr. John Stewart. The office number is  (863) 534-0521. Ask that he intervene on Kiera’s behalf and ask law enforcement to drop the charges. Ask him to re-instate Kiera in school.

There is also a petition here.

Let them know we’ve got Kiera’s back and her dreams will not be destroyed.

    Here’s How the Rifle That Just Killed a 2-Year-Old Girl Is Marketed for Kids

    On Tuesday, inside a rural Kentucky home, a five-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his two-year-old sister. The boy had been playing with a .22 caliber single-shot Crickett rifle made and marketed for kids. The children’s mother was reportedly outside the house when the shooting took place, and apparently didn’t know that the gun contained a shell.

    “Just one of those crazy accidents,” said the Cumberland County coroner, according to theLexington Herald-Leader.

    Clearly the issue of parental responsibility is at the center of this tragedy. But against the backdrop of the Newtown massacre and ongoing national debate over regulating firearms, it also points back to the big business of guns—including how the industry profits from products aimed at children.

    Muslim cabdriver alleges assault by passenger who cited Boston Marathon bombing

    An Army reservist and Iraq veteran who works as a cabdriver says a passenger he picked up early Friday at a Northern Virginia country club accused him of being a terrorist because he is Muslim, then fractured his jaw in an attack being described by Islamic activists as a hate crime.

    Mohamed A. Salim says the passenger compared him to the men accused of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing 11 days earlier and threatened to kill him.

    Don’t Use Jason Collins as an Excuse to Blame Homophobia on Black People
    —By Adam Serwer | Wed May. 1, 2013 2:54 PM PDT

    …There was certainly homophobia in the civil rights movement—but in the 1950s and 60s, American society was homophobic, and Pierce offers no evidence that the civil rights movement was more homophobic than any other American institution during that period. Given that one of the architects of the civil rights movement’s nonviolent strategy was Bayard Rustin, it was arguably less homophobic than much of society at the time. With a few notable exceptions, surviving leaders of the movement, from Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), to Rev. James Lawson, to Jesse Jackson, to Julian Bond are all in favor of gay and lesbian rights.

    There’s also little evidence for the proposition that black
    homophobia is “the most virulent and stubborn of all.” Black folks, who were disenfranchised for centuries, didn’t put any of those old anti-sodomy laws on the books. The legal architecture of discrimination based on sexual orientation is one of the few things in America that dates back to colonial times that wasn’t built by black people.

    U.S. Will Appeal Order on Morning-After Pill
    By PAM BELLUCK
    Published: May 1, 2013

    The Department of Justice said Wednesday that it will appeal a federal judge’s order to make the most common morning-after pill available without a prescription for all ages.

    In a scathing opinion handed down three weeks ago, Judge Edward R. Korman in the Eastern District of New York said the Obama administration had put politics before science in restricting access to the drug.

    The Justice Department’s decision to appeal was likely based not only on the substance of the judge’s ruling, but also the precedent the ruling would set in countermanding an order by a White House cabinet member, Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services.

    ‘Political intelligence’ firms face insider trading inquiry

    The Securities and Exchange Commission has issued subpoenas to firms and individuals connected to the leak last month of a federal funding decision that appeared to cause a surge in stock trading of several major health companies.

    The move deepens the government’s scrutiny of the emerging “political intelligence” industry, which has been thriving on delivering valuable information from Washington to investors. This relatively new breed of companies capitalizes on the fact that decisions made in Washington — whether a regulator blocking a big merger or a lawmaker tweaking legislation — can create opportunities for stock traders to make money.

    Winning over Obama with ESPN

    President Barack Obama loves to watch sports – and the people who want to catch his eye know it.

    Companies and trade associations are doing something a little strange: they’re buying up airtime on ESPN.Continue Reading

    Media strategists tell POLITICO they offer up the all-sports network as an option to clients who want to get their issues in front of Obama and top White House officials, known as big sports fans and rabid ESPN watchers.

    “It’s certainly a tactic that’s talked about a lot,” said one media strategist, who had a client advertise on ESPN in hopes of reaching Obama during the climate change debate of his first term. “It was for exactly that reason.”

    The strategist said the ads can’t be so obvious that Obama knows he’s the intended audience.

    Italy Appoints Black Cabinet Minister, Erupts With Racism

    NICOLE WINFIELD May 1, 2013, 12:08 PM 10337

    ROME (AP) — It was hailed as a giant step forward for racial integration in a country that has long been ill at ease with its growing immigrant classes. But Cecile Kyenge’s appointment as Italy’s first black Cabinet minister has instead exposed the nation’s ugly race problem, a blight that flares regularly on the soccer pitch with racist taunts and in the diatribes of xenophobic politicians — but has now raised its head at the center of political life.

    One politician from a party that not long ago ruled in a coalition derided what he called Italy’s new “bonga bonga government.” On Wednesday, amid increasing revulsion over the reaction, the government authorized an investigation into neo-fascist websites whose members called Kyenge “Congolese monkey” and other epithets.

    Kyenge, 48, was born in Congo and moved to Italy three decades ago to study medicine. An eye surgeon, she lives in Modena with her Italian husband and two children. She was active in local center-left politics before winning a seat in the lower Chamber of Deputies in February elections.

    Premier Enrico Letta tapped Kyenge to be minister of integration in his hybrid center-left and center-right government that won its second vote of confidence Tuesday. In his introductory speech to Parliament, Letta touted Kyenge’s appointment as a “new concept about the confines of barriers giving way to hope, of unsurpassable limits giving way to a bridge between diverse communities.”

    His praise and that of others has been almost drowned out by the racist slurs directed at Kyenge by politicians of the anti-immigrant Northern League party, an on-again, off-again ally of long-serving ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, and members of neo-fascist Internet groups.

    In addition to his “bonga bonga” slur, Mario Borghezio, a European parliamentarian for the League, warned in an interview with Radio 24 that Kyenge would try to “impose tribal traditions” from her native Congo on Italy.

    Sen. Pat Toomey: Gun bill failed because GOP “did not want to be seen helping the president do something he wanted to get done.”
    – – – – — -Because of his support of gun safety legislation, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) has watched his approval ratings soar. They are now at the highest they’ve ever been, as opposed to say, Kelly Ayotte’s. According to a Qunnipiac Poll, 85 percent of Pennsylvanians approved of his and Senator Manchin’s gun background check proposal.
    You know what at least 85 percent of Americans should DISapprove of? This, via the Times Herald:

    “In the end it didn’t pass because we’re so politicized.There were some on my side who did not want to be seen helping the president do something he wanted to get done, just because the president
    wanted to do it,” Toomey said.

    THERE IS MORE. —- —C’MON –KARMA!!
