“On 7 a.m. on Monday, the 16 year-old mixed some common household chemicals in a small 8 oz water bottle on the grounds of Bartow High School in Bartow, Florida. The reaction caused a small explosion that caused the top to pop up and produced some smoke. No one was hurt and no damage was caused.
According to WTSP, Wilmot told police that she was merely conducting a science experiment. Though her teachers knew nothing of the specific project, her principal seems to agree.
“She made a bad choice. Honestly, I don’t think she meant to ever hurt anyone,” principal Ron Pritchard told the station. “She wanted to see what would happen [when the chemicals mixed] and was shocked by what it did. Her mother is shocked, too.””

So young Kiera Wilmot is having felony charges thrown at her because she mixed some chemicals and it caused a very minor explosion. An explosion that didn’t harm anyone or anything! Can you imagine this? The girl is not doing anything wrong, had she been white she would have been praised for even attempting such experiment. Florida I know you are a backwards state, every story that comes out of you proves that, but if you allow this girl to rot you are going to have karma that will last centuries. Wilmot did nothing, I mean absolutely nothing, wrong! I am happy that at such a young age she is curious about science, this already shows that she will be an importance scientist for America. Instead of America to see that, they would rather throw the book at her. I strongly believe that since these racist idiots can’t touch Michelle Obama, they are going after any young girl that has the potential to be like her.
I will not stand for this. Florida get your pink flamingo behind together and do what is right. Anyone that has a hand in attempting to ruin this young girls future, you are already setting up your future lineage for trouble, what goes around comes around twice as hard.
