PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — A mother in Pleasant Grove is furious with staff at the city’s junior high school after she said they fed her daughter lunch out of a trash can.

Sierra Prince is a special needs student in the 8th grade at Pleasant Grove Junior High School. While Wednesday was only her second day at school, she already isn’t looking forward to her third day.

“I don’t even know if I want to go to school tomorrow at all,” Prince said.

According to Prince, when she asked for a piece of pizza for lunch on Wednesday afternoon, she was told there was none left. However, after insisting she wanted pizza, a second kitchen employee pulled out what was left from the top of a trash can.

“I didn’t really like the taste of it at all,” Prince said. “It was nasty.”

BILOXI, Miss. — A heroic truck driver ran toward a flaming car, pulling an injured woman and her 1-year-old granddaughter to safety after a violent collision.

David Fredericksen had his dash cam rolling on Aug. 11 along Interstate 10 in Biloxi, Miss. when a violent collision occurred right in front of him, auto blog Jalopnik reported.

Fredericksen exited his vehicle and, with a fire extinguisher in hand, doused the burning car and pulled the woman and her granddaughter to safety.

Both the woman and the baby reportedly survived, though the grandmother suffered a broken leg and other injuries, according to a caption accompanying the video on YouTube.

No one involved in the crash was identified.

The video’s timestamp reads “1/28/2013″ but the caption accompanying the video clarifies that it is wrong at that the incident happened Aug. 11.

On Thursday, former congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) appeared on MSNBC to talk about his attempts to derail the 1033 program which arms local police departments with military grade weapons, and the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

“To militarize them and give them military weapons…it creates a culture… guns, and tanks and gasses…it’s an an attitude that encourages the police to overreact,” Paul told host Andrea Mitchell, while noting that he tried to stop the program’s implementation during the 1990s.

In June, Congress voted on halting the program that arms members of local police departments, an amendment that was ultimately shot down with whopping support from both Republicans and Democrats.

As violence between protesters and local authorities continues, Paul believes that police departments have forgotten that the Founding Fathers never intended for a nationalized police force, and that local police are supposed to represent the community they patrol.
