Long Island middle school allegedly forced a Muslim student to say he pledged to ISIS.
It all started in the East Islip Middle School school cafeteria in January when 12-year-old Pakistani American student Nashwan Uppal’s classmates asked him what he will be blowing up next, the New York Post reported.
After noticing that school supervisors were doing almost nothing to stop the bullying, Uppal, who reportedly has a severe learning disorder and social disabilities, moved to another table in the cafeteria. The classmates followed him and continued on with their anti-Muslim taunts.
The next day Uppal was removed from his gym class by school administrators. East Islip Free Union District Superintendent John Dolan, Principal Mark Bernard and Assistant Principal Jason Stanton brought Uppal and interrogated him for terrorism allegiance.
According to the lawsuit filed by Uppal and his parents, Stanton shouted at Uppal to confess that he was a terrorist. Frightened by the treatment of his school administrators, Uppal wrote a letter confessing his allegiance to ISIS.

Christopher Schneider of Commack, Long Island saved his neighbors by noticing black smoke emanating from the back of their home. He told his father to take a look at the house next door. His father acted on his son’s discovery and saw a fire beginning to form.
Christopher was told to call 911 while his father tried to get the family out of the home. The family was on the other side of the house when the fire broke out and they were just about to fall asleep. However, the persistent knocking on the front door by Mr. Schneider alerted the family.
Christopher learned about black smoke when the local fire department gave a presentation at the school where he attends. The demonstration included information on how black smoke almost always meant there was a fire.
Thanks to Christopher and his knowledge, several lives were saved.
You are our superhero this week, Christopher! Thank you from the SOCKKIDS!
