The woman was taken to a hospital where she was treated for injuries described as minor. She was then released, the police said.

Either the juvernile is the stupidest criminal or one of the most unluckiest to actually kidnap his own high school teacher. You would think when he and his partner were looking to kidnap someone he would have passed on kidnapping his own teacher. A prime example of the failure of the District school system.

Must be a way to blame this on the police. He's just misunderstood & unloved. His Moms didn't give him a teddy bear when he was 2. Sniff. Oh, the horror...

Another in a record number of ignorant callous and dumb black youth.

He probably smiled and spoke to this teacher everyday all the while thinking how nice it would be to stick a gun in her face for control. Just stupid.

I bet the perpetrators that killed the principal are black also and probably knew HIM and was just waiting to take advantage of his kindness.

This was a man who risked his career to try to help better educate young blacks. He even used his own funds to help a couple black kids attend college.

But when your mind is set on taking advantage, in a negative way of anything placed in front of you. This is what happens. This is the mindset of way too many of our young blacks, females included.

How far can you get with the items stolen from the principal, and did you have to kill him. And how far will the money you stole from your teacher take you, and if she hadn't escaped would you have killed her also.

And these are YOUNG people with this callous mindset and it's something that just isn't changed overnight or with prison time.
