FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WJBK) –
Kyle Thompson appears to be a typical 14-year old boy, but there’s something about his life right now that’s a little different. He’s not going to school because he was kicked out.
The story begins last March at Harrison High School in Farmington Hills and ends with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) petitioning for his return to school. Thompson tells the ACLU he and his fellow football players came up with a “hit list” – a list of players they would like to hit on the football field. He and his friends say the list was just a joke, and even gave their teacher a peek when she asked what they were laughing at.
That’s when the trouble began.
