TOWSON, Md. (WBFF) - Upset parents are contacting Baltimore County Schools about a slide that was shown in their child's history class this week at Loch Raven High School.
The slide featured a picture of President Trump above pictures of a swastika and hammer-and-sickle.
Over the picture of the president are the words "Wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall." The words "been there" and "done that" appear under the pictures of the swastika and hammer and sickle. A banner on the side reads "Oh that's why it sounds so familiar!"
Parents are questioning whether the slide was part of a history lesson or if the teacher was spreading political ideology.
The parents didn’t want to be identified because they're afraid of negative repercussions for their children at the high school.
They say the image was put up in class on Wednesday.
A devastated Queensland mother has shared the moment her young son breaks down, having just been bullied at school again because of his disability.
Quaden Bayles - an advocate for dwarfism awareness - was left utterly distraught after he was set upon while waiting to be picked up.
“I want people to know - parents, educators, teachers - this is the effect that bullying has,” his mum Yarraka says in the confronting video, in which Quaden declares “I want to kill myself”.
“This is what bullying does. So can you please educate your children, your families, your friends.”
The nine-year-old is the face of Stand Tall 4 Dwarfism, which was established by his mum in a bid to raises awareness of the condition and stamp out bullying.
The youngster was diagnosed with achondroplasia dwarfism when he was just three days old.
LAS VEGAS - A prank group is apparently looking to send an aerial message ahead of Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Las Vegas.
Known as P.U.T.I.N., or Pigeons United To Interfere Now, the group shared footage of various pigeons wearing tiny red “Make America Great Again” hats, which are a hallmark of President Donald Trump’s campaign.
According to a press release from the group, the pigeons are trained and were released in Downtown Las Vegas, just north of the Paris Theater where the debate is being held.
“One of the pigeons, the leader of the flock, was adorned with a small, orange hairpiece, to commemorate that of their leader, President Donald J. Trump,” according to the press release. “The project was the result of months of exhaustive research, logistical hurdles and pigeon caretaking.”
Complex-Dwyane Wade recently appeared on Ellen to talk about his 12-year-old child Zaya coming out as a transgender girl.

Boosie Badazz decided to criticize Wade's support in a rant on Instagram.
"I gotta say something about this shit, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too fucking far, dawg," the 37-year-old said, before quickly delving into more transphobic comments. "That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon' be. They don’t have shit figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her.

(CNN)A 6-year-old special needs girl in Florida was involuntarily committed to a mental health facility because she was "out of control" at school, according to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office incident report.
Authorities were called to the Love Grove Elementary School last week after the girl, Nadia King, was "destroying school property, attacking staff, out of control, and running out of school," the report said.
After a clinical social worker at the school told the responding officers that Nadia was "a threat to herself and others," she was taken to the River Point Behavioral Health for a 48-hour psychiatric evaluation under Florida's Baker Act, the report states.
The Baker Act allows mental health facilities to hold a person for up to 72 hours for evaluation. A law enforcement officer, a mental health professional or a Circuit Court judge may involuntarily commit an individual under the act if they are thought to be mentally ill, are refusing a voluntary examination and are thought to pose a threat to themselves or others.
Daytime TV host, Amanda Seales, from the show 'The Real', heaped praise on Jussie Smollet's hate crime hoax that divided a nation and cost Chicago a lot of money and resources.
“Even if it was a hoax for the sake of bringing attention to this, then I’m like, that’s low-key noble,” she said.
“Like, I’m just at my wits end about us centering situations like this and wanting to make people have to pay,” Seales said in reference to Smollett’s alleged hate crime hoax.
Fox News- A New York City man who’s now been arrested 139 times thanked Democrats for guaranteeing his immediate release despite repeatedly swiping hundreds of dollars from unsuspecting subway commuters since the state’s new bail reform law went into effect Jan. 1.
Charles Barry, 56, has been arrested six times since the start of this year. He’s been released each time without having to post bail under New York’s new bail reform law since his alleged offenses were nonviolent, the New York Daily News reported. In the past, Barry’s served several stints in state prison and has a lengthy record, including six felonies, 87 misdemeanors and 21 missed court hearings, the newspaper reported, citing court records.
“Bail reform, it’s lit!” Barry yelled to reporters Thursday outside the NYPD Transit District 1 headquarters in the Columbus Circle station before officers transported him to Manhattan Central Booking. “It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”
“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” Barry shouted to reporters. “It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing. They punk’ed people out for bullsh-- crimes.”
FREEHOLD, N.J. - A FedEx worker is being praised across social media after a Ring camera at a home caught his simple act of patriotism.
Rick Guerino Jr. tells FOX 35 News that he got an alert from his Ring doorbell camera that someone was near his home.
“I saw a FedEx worker and I didn’t remember ordering anything,” he said.

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJXT/CNN) - An elementary school teacher from Florida faces drug charges after deputies say she bought 3.5 grams of methamphetamine from an undercover narcotics detective.
Valerie Prince, a first-grade teacher at Jacksonville Heights Elementary in Jacksonville, Fla., was arrested Thursday. She is charged with felony purchase and possession of methamphetamines.
According to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office, Prince originally tried to get an undercover detective to bring the meth either to or near the school while she was working. Law enforcement was not willing to do so, and Prince allegedly ended up making the purchase after work.
James King, a law-abiding college student in Grand Rapids, Michigan, was brutally beaten in an unjustifiable case of mistaken identity. Taskforce members misidentified James as a fugitive; stopped, searched, beat and choked him into unconsciousness; and then—even after it was clear they had the wrong man—arrested James and charged his with a series of felonies to cover their tracks. After fighting a criminal prosecution aimed at preventing James from vindicating his constitutional rights and sending him to prison, James was acquitted. But that was just the beginning.
When James filed a lawsuit against the officers to hold them to account for their actions, the officers argued they were entitled to several forms of immunity and persuaded the court to throw out James’ case. An appeals court reversed the worst parts of that decision, but the government has now taken James’ case to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to shield the officers from any accountability for violating the Constitution.
Border Patrol officials said a stun gun was used to subdue a man suspected of migrant smuggling in a struggle at an El Paso Burger King captured in a viral video.
In the video, which surfaced Tuesday, the man pleads with two Border Patrol agents and claims he has done nothing as they arrest him at the fast-food restaurant.
He clings to the counter and asks why he is being detained as the agents pull at him. After continuing to resist and not following their orders, an agent appears to shock him with a stun gun before he is forced to the ground as the officers put handcuffs on him.
The video, which by Wednesday afternoon had reached over 1 million views and had been shared 20,000 times, has since been taken down. Attempts to reach the Facebook user have gone unanswered.
"The man refused to cooperate with the verbal instructions and attempted to avoid being handcuffed and a struggle ensued," a Border Patrol statement reads. "Agents deployed their Taser in order to gain control of the subject while mitigating the physical struggle."
Border Patrol officials said in the statement that a private citizen told the El Paso Police Department "suspicious individuals" were on his property. Agents working with the police identified four people matching the descriptions the resident provided, according to the statement.
"All four were taken into Border Patrol custody for immigration violations without incident," the statement says.
The Border Patrol did not name the suspects or give the location of their arrests.
Shortly afterward, the citizen told law enforcement that a suspicious vehicle was parked at the residence and that the driver had walked away, "a tactic commonly used by alien smuggling organizations," the statement reads.
The Border Patrol said agents questioned the man after finding him at a nearby restaurant. Records indicated that he was in the country unlawfully and had a criminal history, the statement says.

RICHMOND, Va., -- Richmond Police have charged the Uber driver who allegedly sped through the streets with passengers in the backseat.
Olufemi S. Olomola, 38 of Marlin Drive in Henrico, was charged with two counts of abduction, reckless driving and felony hit and run for the Monday night incident.
John Murray and Tameka Swann said they were picked up from their home on the city’s Northside just before 8 p.m. Monday for a night out on the town.
But, shortly after pulling away, they said someone rear-ended their Uber on Chamberlayne Avenue.
“Our Uber attempted to pull over so that they exchange information, but the car didn’t stop behind us. They went around us and sped off and that’s when our Uber sped off behind him,” Swann recalled.
Murray began to stream their trip on Facebook Live from the backseat.
The Uber driver then pulls onto West Broad Street and races through several more red lights, according to the video.
The couple said an SUV then crashed into the side of their car at West Broad Street and Arthur Ashe Boulevard. The video showed the driver continuing to speed away narrowly missing a bicyclist.
“At approximately 8:15 p.m. on Monday, officers were called to the 2800 block of West Broad Street for the report of a hit and run. Officers arrived and spoke to the driver who reported that while transporting passengers, his vehicle was struck by another car and that car left the scene,” according to a police spokesperson.
“That was the scariest moment of my life,” Swann said. “I have never been that scared in my life. It was a nightmare.”
The couple says they suffered minor bruises and were checked out at the hospital.
Disturbing surveillance footage has emerged showing a mother-of-five's final hours after she was locked up in a Washington state jail for four days when her husband called 911 for help while she suffered a mental health episode.
Damaris Rodriguez, 43, was found dead in her cell at South Correctional Entity, known as SCORE, in Des Moines on January 3, 2018, after she had been incarcerated for 106 hours - despite not being charged with any crime.
The shocking footage has been described by the family's attorney as a 'window into hell' and captures four days of alleged neglect by authorities.
It shows the mother in distress, as she is seen stripping naked, crawling along the cell floor, banging on the door and appearing to vomit and hallucinate.
Attorney Nate Bingham told DailyMail.com that starvation after she didn't eat for the four days she was kept in the jail, ultimately caused her death.
Jail staff had written in her medical notes on the day she died that she was at risk of starvation ketoacidosis but still failed to seek medical help, it is alleged.
Two other inmates have died at the facility in the two years since Rodriguez died.
Rodriguez's family have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the correctional facility, saying she was wrongly arrested when she was suffering a 'mental health episode' and needed medical help.
The incident began when Rodriquez's husband, Rey, called 911 on December 30, 2017, asking for medical help when his wife was suffering 'a psychiatric problem'.
A California high school basketball game ended with students from one team erupting into a chant of “Where’s your passport?” as the opposing team’s principal angrily confronts them.

AKRON, Ohio — A fight over hot dogs at an Akron Speedway gas station Saturday night led to a wild brawl caught on video that started inside and spilled out into the parking lot, according to a police report.
A 27-year-old woman said she was standing in line at Speedway with her friend when she let another female know that she shouldn’t steal a hot dog since the gas station has cameras.
The female and her friends “didn’t take kindly to that comment” and they punched the 27-year-old woman, the report says.
A Good Samaritan saw what was going on and attempted to get the group of females off of the 27-year-old woman. When he attempted to help the woman, the group of females started to hit and attack him.
First the tires were used as weapons, then a window cleaner brush, followed by an entire gas nozzle and hose.
At one point in the video, a woman grabs the gas nozzle and hose that was presumably attached to the pump, and whipped it at a man pictured in the video.
Towards the end of the video, the group of females fled the gas station in a black Ford Focus after they heard sirens.
Akron Police told News 5 the women involved could face charges of criminal damaging, assault, theft and disorderly conduct.
Police said they have been called to the Speedway at 390 East Exchange Street 123 times over the past year, but said many of the disturbance have been caused by people leaving area bars,
A second Chinese citizen journalist who had been covering China’s deadly coronavirus outbreak from its epicenter in Wuhan has gone missing just days after the disappearance of Chen Qiushi, a former rights lawyer who was video blogging from the city.
Fang Bin, a Wuhan businessman who had been posting videos filmed from city hospitals, was allegedly arrested on Sunday (Feb. 9, link in Chinese), according to Hong Kong broadcaster RTHK, the same day he posted a 12-second video of a piece of paper with the words “resist all citizens, hand the power of the government back to the people” written on it, which he read aloud. RTHK, which didn’t name its source, said that plainclothes police officers accompanied by firefighters broke down Fang’s door to enter his flat. Hua Yong, a Chinese artist and rights activist, told Quartz yesterday that Fang’s friends had separately told him of the arrest.
Again, Chinese officials are caught lying. The official statement from China is that children overall have stayed clear of the Coronavirus, only infecting 2 newborns.
But CCTV footage leaked online shows dead children at a Wuhan hospital. One is seen lying on the floor and one is wheeled out on a gurney.

Bloomberg claimed in an interview in 2015 that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.
“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Bloomberg said. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”
Except Mayor Mike is wrong. In fact, he’s not even close. Since 2000, minorities have committed about 55% of the murders in this country while whites were responsible for about 45%.
