A suit has just been filed against the Placenta-Yorba Linda Unified School District for the coordinated “isolation and discrimination” of a high school student for using a mesh face mask. The trainee, junior Aidan Palicke, states that he used a mesh face mask for 2 years with no concerns– however was all of a sudden tossed out of his school and pushed into a home-based research study program.
In addition, the claim declares, Palicke was required to take his last tests at a desk outside by himself in 40-degree weather conditions.
The legal claim was filed with the help of the California chapter of the Children’s Health Defense, a non-profit organization founded interestingly enough by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
“For two and a half hours, he endured the cold conditions that caused numbness in his hands and concentration issues. He felt shame and humiliation as students were staring at him from the inside. The teacher came outside to check on him and offered an old dirty blanket, but never once showed remorse or sympathy for the inhumane treatment,” CHD said in a press release about the case. “Aidan was clearly being made an example.”
In order to take his mathematics last, Palicke states that he needed to sit outdoors for an overall of 5 hours in simply a tee shirt, while “shielding the humiliating states from fellow students.”
The teen stated that he was buffooned for needing to take the tests outside and informed by individuals that he thought about to be good friends that he ought to have simply caved and used the mask that the school provided to offer.
“My closest friends making fun of me, calling me names, hurt the most,” Palicke said.
Chris Palicke, Aidan’s Father, has actually questioned if the school all of a sudden chose to begin penalizing his boy over the mask as retaliation for his own active participation in school board meetings, where he loudly opposed COVID-19 lockdowns, masks, and other problems including of Critical Race Theory. This would seem to be a pretty clear cut incidence of Political Discrimination.
While speaking at a current occasion hosted by CHD for students who oppose mask mandates, Palicke was asked, “How are you able to stand up, to stay strong and keep going?”
“I know this is bad, but I am 16, so when I can’t breathe or when I am struggling I know how to take the mask off and I can deal with the consequences because I am old enough. But you know who isn’t old enough? The five-year-olds, the six and seven-year-olds, who are being forced to comply, and are being taught they have to listen to their teachers. These kids are struggling, they are more afraid of taking their mask off and getting in trouble than they are of not being able to breathe,” the high school student explained. “This is truly what this fight is about….getting masks off these kids that no one else is protecting.”
According to CHD, The Placenta Yorba Linda Unified School District “abused the education code and termed Aiden ‘a clear and present danger.’ They removed him fraudulently on these provisions. Educational codes do not allow schools to remove students for defiance. Placenta-Yorba Linda Unified School District had to PROVE that Aiden was a clear and present danger. They could not, because he was not.”
The Orange County Register reports, “the lawsuit argues that school officials violated various education codes and constitutional rights while inflicting emotional distress. The lawsuit seeks, among other things, a court order barring the district from suspending or expelling students from in-person instruction for failing to comply with mask policy.”
The mask required in California schools was raised on March 12, however Palicke will not be going back to the school in the fall due to the bullying and discrimination he has actually currently dealt with there.
Another case of COVID-19 associated bullying ended in catastrophe previously this year.
On January 13, a 15-year-old kid in Illinois committed suicide after ruthless harassment over incorrect claims that he was “unvaccinated.”
Robert and Rosellene Bronstein, the young boy’s moms and dads, have actually submitted a suit versus the Latin School of Chicago declaring that school authorities failed to do anything to stop the bullying, in spite of various problems from them and their child.
According to a report from the Chicago Tribune, the claim names the school, a variety of staff members and parents of the supposed bullies.
“A student at the school, whose parents are named in the suit, spread a false rumor that the boy was unvaccinated, the suit alleges. Though he was vaccinated, the boy was harassed about his perceived vaccination status,” the suit says, per the report.
The parents allege that even teachers joined in to torment him, in what could definitely be classified as discrimination as well.
“He was told by a teacher in front of a class that he was going ‘nowhere in life,’ the suit alleges, and was cyberbullied in a group text message thread by members of the junior varsity basketball team and on the social media app Snapchat. A Snapchat message circulated around the school said of the boy: ‘Ur a terrible person,'” the report says. “On Dec. 13, a student sent a Snapchat message to the boy encouraging him to kill himself, the suit alleges.”
In a statement to the Tribune, the school stated that the claims in the suit are unproven, and though it “deeply grieves” the death of the student, it plans to “vigorously defend itself.”
“The allegations of wrongdoing by the school officials are inaccurate and misplaced,” the statement read. “The school’s faculty and staff are compassionate people who put students’ interests first, as they did in this instance.”
