This petition today is about the school to prison pipeline..

16 year old Isaiah Gathing has been detained at the Kalamazoo County Juvenile Home since February 2018. Then 15, he was involved in an altercation with a teacher. The teacher struck Isaiah. Isaiah retaliated. The incident was recorded. Isaiah has a history of mental health issues and was on an Individualized Education Program (IEP). Although he has not been charged, he continues to be held without bond or bail. The courts needed to establish competency. An independent psychiatrist determined Isaiah to be incompetent. The courts were not satisfied with that decision and had one of their psychiatrists conduct another assessment. Isaiah was again found incompetent. The courts, still unsatisfied, ordered a third independent assessment and Isaiah was found to be competent. The courts have recommended he be treated as an adult and is recommending prison. He is still housed in juvenile detention... Hes is know 17 years old and has been transformed to kalamazoo county jail and waiting on his 5th competent test. He was found incompetent twice by the juvenile psychologist how spent the most time with him. This kind of INJUSTICE need to stop..
