Some of you may know the name Tyell Morton and some of you might not. He is a teenager who played a prank at school which might land him with eight years in jail. No one was killed and no one was injured (physically or mentally) by his actions but because of the fear created by the fact he was seen carrying a package into a girls bathroom and then leaving with nothing means he may end up spending time in jail as a terrorist because it was feared he had planted a bomb. The package he was carrying was an inflatable sex doll. A bomb squad were called and they found not a package lying on the floor, but a blow up doll. Had anyone else seen it, it would have been reported as a prank. But because CCTV operators had seen him they’d gone to town and called the bomb squad. OK in their defence they did the sensible thing but upon finding out that it wasn’t a bomb surely the kid should have been left to be punished by the head teacher of the school. Instead Tyell, who is described as “normally well behaved” (surely that’s like character testimony to the good?) was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief.
His school, rather than supporting him or trying to get the charges dropped have instead turned their back on him. He has been banned from school grounds and will miss his graduation because he’s being held in custody.
Rush County Prosecutor Phil Caviness says that he has no sympathy for the teenager because, “the post-Columbine world has created a zero tolerance stance in the community.”
Would that be the same Columbine where Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured countless others by leaving a blow up doll in a toilet, or am I mistaken?
As far as I can see, this teenager is a naïve and foolish lad. He’s not a terrorist or a bomber or a threat to the security of his school. He’s just a kid who thought he’d win some kudos with his mates by making some girls scream at the sight of a sex toy. It’s not even a good practical joke, on the whole it’s pretty crap.
If he is convicted and jailed I can see only one reason for it, because he’s a black kid in America. Barack Obama should get involved because this new America with it’s Black president shouldn’t be the racist, divided country of old. This kid needs freeing, America knows it can do the right thing. You can America, yes you can.
