I can't believe these hoods have nothing better to do then destroy an educational institute for kids. Please find these idiots so justice will prevail.

There is alot more to this story than what is being put out there for the public. The Principal knows exactly why this happened-several students were busted for drugs a few days before. What amazes me is that there was no alarm that was activated when the concrete bench got tossed through the window and the so-called school "security" (a bunch of wananabe cop losers) wasn't around? No one noticed a car parked there at an odd hour?(Unless they came in off Industrial Park St).....Takes more than one person to heave a heavy bench through a classroom window and start a fire. It sure wasn't something that could be accomplished in less than 5 minutes. Alot of the parents have no concern or interest in the progress of their child-most are too lazy to attend parent teacher conferences to find out how their child is doing. The poor teachers are basically babysitters for a bunch of smart mouthed, rude, disrespectful, arrogant pukes who show little to no respect for them or their peers-a learned behavior from their home life.

Is that how they got in? They threw a heavy bench through the window? Damn that shit must have been planned. I doubt someone could just improvise that.

it's late for me to be commenting on this but I remember when this happened I went to school when it happened. One day two beautiful classrooms and the next nothing except an empty spot of sement. They want 150,000 dollars to replace it no wonder why they left it empty. You know all the government wants is money they don't ace about kids education they don't care about anybody or anything; so you lancers and all of the other schools don't give up on learning prove yourself that you can become I don't know a wrestler or the fastest girl to eat twelve pies, I don't know but all of that includes some sort of education don't let some stupid kid that let his/her anger out on something special. And all of you teachers don't quit teaching just because you get laid off doesn't mean you have to stop teaching don't let a bunch of dummies ruin your dream.
