FAKE: High School announces 4 students killed in an auto accident… just to teach lesson about safe driving

I cannot imagine anyone thinking this was a good idea.

During the morning announcements students were told the name of four students who had supposedly died in a car accident that morning. Several minutes later, a second announcement told students their classmates were not dead and that, instead, the announcement was part of a simulation drill.

The Brodhead HIgh School principle says the drill was put on by the student council as part of a year-long campaign on safe driving. Throughout the day more announcements told students more of their classmates were dying in car accidents.

The students that were “dying” as part of the drill were aware ahead of time but were not allowed to use their phones to notify other classmates that they were okay.

“A lot of our fellow friends and students actually started crying because they thought these people were actually dead and so I think a lot of them actually called their parents in school too,” Brodhead High School student Madison Trombley says.

In a Facebook post, one of the participants passionately defended the tactic. Miranda Ryser wrote:

“To the people who are upset about what happened at school today, good. I hope you’re upset about it because I would rather have you upset and pissed off at the student council and the principal for a day, instead of being depressed because one of your classmates ACTUALLY died. I get that some people were already affected by other car accidents but it happens. People die on the daily basis and it happens. Touchy subject or not it happens and it shows that it can happen unexpectedly.”

According to the news, “The district superintendent says the drill was not intended to cause any harm or stress or scare students.”

…  But I think the ship has sailed on that one.

Mindy Kaling’s brother posed as black to get into med school; their feud offers insight into liberalism

If you were to peer into the mind of a liberal, you would see a world where affirmative action is viewed as a great program that single-handedly saved minorities from the brink and where slut-shaming is quite possibly one of humanities greatest offenses. This EXACT scenario is playing out right in front of us within the family of Mindy Kaling, star of The Mindy Project and formerly The Office. [Read more…]
