Kiera Wilmot, 16, Arrested And Expelled For Explosive ‘Science Experiment’

What Kiera Wilmot claims started as a harmless experiment is now a nightmare for the 16-year-old Florida native. Wilmot, a Bartow High School student, was arrested at her school last week for allegedly detonating a water bottle filled with an explosive concoction of common household chemicals. According to the Miami New Times, “[A] police report … indicates Wilmot mixed toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil — a combination that has inspired hundreds of YouTube videos and generally produces a fairly unimpressive explosion.” One teen told Florida-based WTSP News 10 that Wilmot merely wanted to see what would happen when those chemicals mixed. WTSP also reports that Wilmot has been expelled and will now finish high school in an expulsion program. According to Miami New Times, Wilmot was known as a good student.

He Filmed Alton Sterling Shooting

what has happened to the individuals who filmed and distributed the shocking videos of Alton Sterling’s death. The videos show a Baton Rouge police officer pinning Sterling to the ground outside a convenience store, then pointing a gun at his chest and opening fire.

Muflahi has filed a lawsuit against the city of Baton Rouge, the Baton Rouge Police Department and four of its officers. The lawsuit alleges the police took his phone, locked him for hours in a police car and seized his security camera footage without a warrant.

Students Sue, Claiming Police Groped 900 of Them in Drug Search

In Sylvester, Georgia, 9 high school students have filed a federal civil rights lawsuit, alleging they were among 900 students who were groped after the local sheriff ordered school-wide pat-down searches. The students say that on April 14, sheriff’s deputies searched hundreds of students for drugs, with some officers groping students’ breasts and genitalia. In an interview with local media, Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby said he believed the searches were legal because school administrators were present. Officers did not have warrants, and the pat-downs did not yield any illegal drugs.
