Like Stealing Money From A Kid in a Wheelchair

Nolan Turner is 12, and only wanted to raise money to help bring a better understand of his life to his classmates.

Turner, who has spin bifida and is in a wheelchair, was raising $1000 to rent wheelchairs so that he introduce to his classmates wheelchair basketball and how to operate them and their challenges.

But while out in a Carolina neighborhood with his money bucket containing $250 a man he doesn’t know approached him, snatched the bucket and ran off with Turner unable to catch up to him.  Police are still looking for the suspect.

Nolan’s father has set up this fundraising site for anyone who would like to donate.

After a loss in the Catholic Youth Organization finals, Forbes confronted the opposing coach of the 6th grade team and attacked him.  The fight ended with parents pulling Forbes from the man, but not before he had bitten off part of the coach’s ear.  Forbes then fled the scene, but was later arrested and charged with mayhem, assault and battery, and other criminal charges.
