A developing story
Tragically a local sixth grade student was struck and killed by a pickup truck Friday, April 20, 2018.
The incident occurred during a school sanctioned “walk out”. The walk out was scheduled as a protest against gun violence on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine school shootings.
According to the school district superintendent:
“This was an isolated group of students who breached the school’s perimeter,” De La Torre said, “We believe this was a group of about 12 to 15 students.”
He also indicated that the school had about 10 individuals keeping an eye on students participating in a walkout to protest recent school shootings according to a KFOX14 news report.
The students reportedly wanted to go to a park and they had to cross loop 375 to get there. Here is a picture from google maps:
We all know that people do dumb things. What responsibility do the school administrators have here? Are the other students culpable?
We deserve better
