The Curious Case of Al Wiggins Jr v. Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, MA | Original Complaint.pdf

The Curious Case of Al Wiggins Jr v. Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, MA | Original Complaint.pdf | The Student Body | Scoop.it

"Ten years ago today, on the campus of Bridgewater State College, (now Bridgewater State University) in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, I fell victim to a hoax created by the bold-faced lies of an unethical, unprincipled and dishonest doctor. 


The incident all but ruined my chances to graduate from college.  The Social Security Administration says It was also the day I became a disabled person.  Since that time, I've been on the lookout for the hypocrites of modern medicine."


Al Wiggins Jr | Founder of The Hive - April 15, 2014.

#OpDejaVu's insight:

"During his deposition, Wiggins described the disturbing things he had seen on campus:


"I had seen women walking around [in] broad daylight with black eyes.  ...what I was taught was if you see elderly people, children, or women, or a combination of those three, walking around in fear in broad daylight, there's something wrong in your community"


Wiggins testified that he saw at least two women with black eyes walking around and noted that nothing else prompted him to call [Bridgewater State College Chief of Police, David] Tillinghast." - Al Wiggins Jr v. Bridgewater State College.

Sixty years after Brown v. Board of Education, the schools in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, show how separate and unequal education is coming back.
#OpDejaVu's insight:

If this is what gerrymandering does to school systems, at the expense of innocent children, they can keep it.  This hideous situation is an American disgrace.  The adults responsible for the denigration and suffering of innocent children should be ashamed of themselves.  This isn't racism.  It's just plain stupid.
