High School Student Reprimanded For Posting Fake License To “Hunt Black People”
Officials at Pennsylvania’s Highlands School District took immediate disciplinary action to remove a student after a photo of a fake license to hunt and kill black people began circulating on Snapchat.
According to the above picture, the carrier of the license is permitted to kill black people during “open season” between January 1 to December 31st. Once officials saw the picture, it was immediately sent to school officials.
“Once that happened, it got forwarded to multiple [people], that’s when we became aware. Someone turned it into [Principal Dan Gottron], he started to investigate and follow through with that,” Superintendent Dr. Michael Bjalobok said to KDKA-TV.
It’s unclear if the student has been suspended or expelled, yet according to reports the student is no longer at the school.
“It’s just a horrible type of situation. Totally unacceptable to the Highlands School District. We will not tolerate this and we’re going to definitely follow our board policy in issuing consequences for this action,” Dr. Bjalobok said.
