DAMN SHAME / Politics and all that jazz / Serious Shit / What Kids Can Do

A teenager shows what true leadership is about… peep this!


********* UPDATE **********

(YOUTUBE HAS TAKEN ROBERT’S VIDEO DOWN FOR WHAT APPEARS TO BE MORE HARASSMENT VIA THE SCHOOL.  I WILL BE CONTACTING HIS SCHOOL SOON FOR AN UPDATE. IT RECEIVED MORE THAN 18,000 VIEWS IN 3 DAYS)

**** UPDATE II (12/23/09) ****

(I JUST RECEIVED A COPY THAT SOMEONE ELSE DID ON THEIR YOUTUBE CHANNEL, THEREFORE, WHEN YOU CLICK THE ORIGINAL CLIP, YOU WILL NOW BE ABLE TO VIEW THIS.  ADDITIONALLY, ROBERT [THE BRAVE KID WHO STOOD UP FOR HIS RIGHTS] POSTED ADDITIONAL FOOTAGE FROM THAT DAY.)

I’m posting this today because it can’t wait.  If you think what is currently happening (and again IN PLAIN VIEW) isn’t taking place, then my guess is you don’t want to know.  I’m just really glad to find that some of our kids are smart enough to discern truth.  The school is called Breckenridge High School and is located in Minnesota.  The Principal’s name is Daniel Bettin.  The science teacher’s name is Scott Wermerskirchen.  Their names and information are in the video, but I want to be sure to blast these two because I wish a teacher or even a principal would put their hands on my child in an aggressive manner! This brave young man, Robert Wanek, did exactly what an independent thinker should do, but you won’t believe what happened to him and some of his classmates…

Here’s Robert’s additional footage in response to Youtube removing his original…

I’ve got your back Robert!  You rock, big man!!!  I only hate that it’s Xmas break right nowbut please believe this is only part one for Why O’ Why!!!

  1. I reviewed the video that is here and I must say that this kid (teenager) is on a good mission. He’s well spoken too. It’s refreshing to discover that our teens are interested in activism. I thought activism had become a thing of the past as one who is a “baby boomer”. I’m glad to see that there are still young people out there who do care about their future. This was a good post/article.

    What do the kids say these days? Way to go Robert!!! Us “baby boomers” prefer to give KUDOS that we are more familiar with… so “knock ’em dead” young fellow! I am looking forward to the updated findings. Cool site by the way and congrats on the 10k mark (nice song to celebrate that achievement).

    • Hi Stevenlew59… yeah, this little dude has restored my faith in our youth! It’s refreshing to know that there are some kids out there who have more than sex, drugs and rock & roll on their minds. I hope he has filed charges against that principal and science teacher especially since he has witnesses. I do plan to follow up on this because it’s absurd that he was suspended for giving out literature on swine flu! If it were Porno, well, that would be a clear violation, but educating his peers on the serious dangers of the vaccines is just horrible. Since you’re a “baby boomer”, I’m sure you can identify with his peaceful “protest”. It does seem more and more clear that we are loosing our right to free speech. I tell ya’ the more I think about how he was treated for exercising his right and how he was violated, the more mad it makes me. Rest assured, there is a part two coming to this post.

      Thanks for the KUDOS too. I was surprised we hit that number fairly quickly! We do try to keep it interesting.

  2. I sent this link to some friends and they pointed out that the video is no longer there. Are you aware of this? Can you re-post? Thanks.

  3. I’ve posted these videos at my site and gave you a hat tip.

    This young man is to be commended for standing up for what he believes is right!! Way To Go Robert!!!!

    • You are too kind for the “tip of the hat”! I do blush right now! *wish I knew the emoticon for that, BUT you got a sista’ blushing!* (smiles really big and still blushing)! Hey… I only got an email about this on the 18th regarding what “little big man” had endured. This kid is so cool and wise beyond his years to me (I have been checking into him too). “Way to go Robert” I CONCUR! So glad that some of our youngsters are thinking about more important things, THAT’S for sure!

      P.S. Very cute new pic BTW! I do admire your ability to switch up the “shots”. I won’t say what I’m thinking, but I am sure you’ll read between the lines on that! Okay, maybe not hahah! My friend really did MISS OUT (IMHO)! Sorry :)… I know I said I wouldn’t mention it again but I KNOW HE’S lurking, quiet as he’s trying to remain!!! 😉 LOL!

  4. I am also commenting to make you know of the perfect discovery my friend’s girl encountered using your web site. She came to find plenty of pieces, with the inclusion of how it is like to have an amazing helping mood to have certain people completely completely grasp certain tortuous matters. You actually did more than her expected results. Thanks for giving the valuable, trustworthy, edifying and as well as cool tips on the topic to Gloria.
