Teen says his pro-Trump shirt was censored in school yearbook photo

A 17-year-old from Wall Township, New Jersey, is speaking out after he took a look at the yearbook and saw that the Trump T-shirt he wore on picture day was Photoshopped out.

Grant Berardo said he wore the shirt in his yearbook photo for Wall Township High School because he was too young to vote for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, but he wanted to show his support.

This is what the shirt actually looks like.

“It was Photoshopped,” Grant said in an interview with the Asbury Park Press. “I sent it to my mom and dad, just like, ‘You won’t believe this.’ I was just overall disappointed. I like Trump, but it’s history, too. Wearing that shirt memorializes the time.”

Wall Schools Superintendent Cheryl Dyer said she is “quite disturbed by the entire situation.” The photo company, Jostens, did not comment. Whether a school employee or the photo company was responsible for the edit decision remains to be seen.

The school says political shirts are not a dress code violation.

The teen’s father, Joseph Berardo Jr., called it “censorship” and believes “it was probably politically motivated.”

The father wondered what kind of message this sends to someone interested in politics before they can vote.

“What are you doing? Don’t you go to school to debate this stuff – at the collegiate level, at the high school level,” he asked. “What’s frustrating to me is that this was the first election he took interest in, but what message did the school send?”

Firefighter warns others after daughter chokes on fidget spinner part

A firefighter in Indiana is warning other parents after his daughter had a frightening encounter with a fidget spinner.

The firefighter was not identified by name, but his story was posted on the Decatur Township Fire Department's page on Thursday. The firefighter said his daughter was in the back seat of the car playing with the fidget spinner and talking. "It broke out of the holder, flew in her mouth, and lodged in her throat. I did about 5 minutes of back blows and with her coughing it became dislodged and went to her stomach."

The firefighter called 911 and the girl was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and released. 

The fire department posted an image of the girl's X-ray, where the fidget spinner piece can clearly be seen lodged in the girl's body. 

The firefighter wanted to share his story to warn other parents that fidget spinners, the latest toy fad, can be choking hazards. This is not the first time a fidget spinner has caused injury. A 10-year-old girl choked on a piece of the toy in May, and a piece got stuck in her esophagus, requiring surgery. 

Congress introduces bill to prevent hot car deaths

New legislation on Capitol Hill aims to equip cars with technology that could help save the lives of children.

>> Read more trending news 

More than 800 children have died from heatstroke in hot cars since 1990, according to Kidsandcars.org.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced the Hot Car Act this week.

“Our legislation would move us one step closer to getting this inexpensive technology in every car on the road to help save the lives of children nationwide,” said U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan, R-Ohio.

Parents and families who have been affected by hot car deaths and safety advocates joined members of Congress to push the bill.The bill would require cars to visually alert drivers to check rear seating once the car has been turned off.

The alert must also include a noise to remind the driver to check the back seat.

The alert system could also include a vibration system to physically alert the driver.

The technology would be similar to the alert a car gives when keys are left in the car or the headlights are still on.

The bill would also educate the public on the risks of leaving a child unattended in a car after it has been turned off.

Nine children have died so far this year from being left in a back seat.
