The image in question.
The Mike Freeman with a Gun Image is a picture of former vice-principal Mr. Freeman holding a rifle in a Williamston sweatshirt. We are not sure when this picture was taken, nor the context behind it. Regardless, the students of Williamston High School find it hilarious that such a picture was taken. Members of Willemstan have been spreading this image through the internet and various school projects. The image was discovered in early 2019 by Charlie Nolan on the HS Student Shared, and spread around the school by many members of Willemstan.
- The first public appearence of the image was on a final project for Spanish II produced by Charlie, Dakotah, Ian, and Sean near the end of the 2018 - 2019 school year. This project was called "The World in 50 Years", and was basically turned into a complete shitpost. At the end of the presentation, the image was shown to the entire class with no context.
- Around the same time, the image was also uploaded to System I. It has been in every System folder. When Sean and Ian erased System II, they deliberatly left the image as one of the few untouched files, in the hopes that it would be discovered by future Williamston students.
- The image has been used in many instances of Anti-Delp Propaganda directed towards Mr. Freeman during 2019 and 2020.
- The image made a cameo appearence at the end of the Final Project for Spanish III. Several copies of the image were placed on "El Principal"'s desk as an inside joke, alongside Charlie's first suspension notice.
- The image was posted during the various raids on r/Williamston in 2020.
- The image was used as the profile picture for the Willemstan 2 server.
- The image is used in the Mr. Freeman article for the Willemstan Wiki.
- The image is used in "Vapebusters" parody song by Charlie and Ian in late 2020.
- The image is used in Vapebusters: Remastered, made in 2021.
- The image was used as the profile picture for the Revolution Camp, a Discord server for The Revolution.
Response from WHS Administration
During the March Incident, the administration became aware of the Mike Freeman with a Gun Image. They were not pleased with our use and spread of it, especially in the First r/Williamston Raid. They asked Charlie to remove it, but at this point the cat is already out of the bag. The remaining reddit posts with the image were not posted by him, so he has neither the authority nor the motivation to take them down. However, most of the wiki articles with the image were taken down for a time due to the wiki purge that took place. Even if members of Willemstan removed all traces of it from the internet, pretty much every student in the class of 2022 and 2023 already knows about the image.
