Posted on 12/24/2011 10:17:19 AM PST by WOBBLY BOB
Dozens of teens and teachers froze as they say 40-year-old Ronette Ricketts began viciously stabbing fellow English teacher Cynthia Glozier. 3 wounds to the head, 2 puncture wounds to the neck, a dozen more to her back and body.

But dozens froze? The plan to make people passive is working well.
Two generations of “call 9-1-1” and fear of lawsuits has made people hesitant.
Big HURRAH for the kid that took action.
Crappy reporting. Does this journalist realize that he/she did not tell what the student actually did?
Romantic rivalry perhaps.
First Degree Attempted Assault?
I really have to wonder about the intelligence of the modern legal system sometimes.
“I really have to wonder about the intelligence of the modern legal system sometimes.”
When the lawyers make the laws, the laws become all about generating wealth for the lawyers. The huge expense of justice was one the reasons we had a revolution.
“But dozens froze..”
I can only imagine if I was a high school student that saw two TEACHERS fighting... I might freeze as well. Good job to the young man who stepped in. It sounds like he may have literally saved a life.
Yes, he probably did save the teacher’s life. Very good for him, and that he was able to use the football skills he’d learned to get the weapon out of the attacker’s hand. Quick thinking and quick action on his part.
Ms. Ricketts appears to be someone who got stiffed at the Air Jordan free-for-all. It was nice to see, in the news video, that the court room at her arraignment was packed with well-wishing, student yoots.
Dont they usually file the most drastic charges possible to scare the perp in to pleading to a lesser charge?
This must have been a green assistant DA who was just filling the spot solo for the first time while everyone else was home for the holidays.
“Principal Edgar Glascott said students, teachers and faculty are all in shock as both teachers are extremely well liked. Ricketts’ defense attorney said students packed the courtroom this morning to show their support of her. Sources tell PIX 11 Ricketts feared she was about to be fired.
While Principal Glascott confirmed he had heard of Ricketts’ fears, they were unfounded. “
What else you start yelling FIGHT
I’m thinking high school football players may be more use to “scuffles” and putting themselves into a situation where violence is present. Centuries ago when I was in high school, a female teacher set up a fake scenario where a student “got out of control and appeared as if he was going to hit her”. It was part of a psychology class and it was suppose to be the lead up to a discussion about when people intervene. Long story short, the only two students who intervened and grabbed the male student were two football players. Hmmm?
Diversity has a price paid in blood.
Unions usually support the employee when they appeal job actions like dismissals, not criminal charges. If the employee has legal coverage through a union sponsored insurance program her coverage can come from that, otherwise she hires a defense attorney.
If she is not found guilty, she could come back to the union and appeal for her job, but the district can fire her even though she was found not guilty in court. Different standard of evidence.
"I saw Ms. Ricketts just hammering her in the side of head. I saw a lot of blood. It was shocking. I just jammed her really hard to get the screwdriver fly out of her hand. If I didn't step in she would have killed her."
..or a very smart DA who didn't want to be accused of racism.
After doing "community service" for her temporary lapse in judgement, she will be promoted to a higher paying, less stressful job. Very likely, she will be the principal's boss.
Do not overlook the trump, racism card. Its power is awesome, incredible, but reliable.
You left out, "'mon, Ricketts! Keel dat wyatt beeotch!"
Here's a link to a story with more details and a video of the hero. http://larrybrownsports.com/high-school/football-player-break-up-hallway-stabbing-school/105931
Hero football player, Justin Richardson.
To clarify.......it appears to be a predominately black student body at the school......the attacking teacher is black, the victim is white. The principal is a rather young white man, he looks younger than both the teachers involved.
Thank God, the young black male student intervened. He saved someone’s life. He is a hero.
At the end of the video, the reporter intimated that the charges may be increased.
With the action going on, I would wait to get a good look at the weapon...intervening it a knife fight can get you killed. A screwdriver is less deadly. One student knew what to do, that was all they needed. Thank God for him.
Looks like a decent kid from a good family.
Kudos to Mr. Richardson (who sort of looks like Clark Kent in this picture).
it was battery, not assault. rme
And we wonder why it is that blacks are 12% of the population but commit 50% of the murders.
Atheletes in contact sports have a sense of being strong and tough. They develop a sense of determination to physically achieve what they set out to do and have the self confidence to do it. They play knowing they are risking injury to themselves. They are not afraid of pain. They know how to injure opponents. They learn to think and exercise self control while the adrenalin is running high.
My son, a lacrosse player, stepped in to rescue a woman who was being kidnapped in a parking lot. The victim sends him birthday cards on his birthday and thankyou cards on her birthday. She’s married and has three children and was targeted randomly by the perp.
I agree. Doesn't have a name like Le Romulus Richardson, either. Doesn't try to talk "thug." I bet he goes to a church.
Ricketts, on the other hand, looks like trouble waiting to happen. Attitude written all over her face. Not a happy one.
Black teacher attacking a white teacher.
Certainly not a hate crime.
Eric Holder said this is obviously a racist attempt by the dying white power structure to single out a well liked black teacher and make her appear to be violent on the basis of one isolated incident.
He pointed out that all of the black kids in the school support her and her neighbors said she was a good girl when she was little.
I thought the same thing.
~ Larry Elder, "The Ten things You Can't Say In America"
Can’t speak directly for New York, but Grand Juries aren’t used in the case of normal criminal charges in my area. They are only convened when the DA needs to conduct an investigation to determine if charges are warranted.
Even in serious murder cases, the DA files charges and there is a preliminary hearing before a judge, although the preliminary hearing is frequently waived by the defendant and the case goes directly to trial or a plea agreement.
The article said that she was to go before a grand jury on Tuesday.
Black on white violence, I’m shocked.
You have got to be so PROUD of your son! Not only did he save the woman’s life but the future three children that she has now. No wonder she sends him cards. She has to think, “If it wasn’t for him, what would have happened?” Bless your son. You did a good job, Mom!
You caught that one, did you?! LOL! Yes, today I feel like I graduated CENTURIES ago!
It feels like centuries since I was little. I can remember back to 1981,maybe part of 1980.
Where’s the black outrage?
On days like this... I can’t even remember if I had breakfast. I am able to walk so I must have had coffee!
I’ve had days in which I couldn’t remember if I ate,too!
Don’t you get rickets if you haven’t had enough Vitamin B?
She sure is. It’s good to see someone jumping in to help a person in grave danger.
Ricketts is from a vitamin D deficiency.
I just looked it up and it doesn’t affect adults,according to Wikipedia.
For someone who lives in Florida I’m awfully pale. I’m mostly German so I burn easily.Very easily. You should see my grandfather! He’s very white and he and my grandmother have been here for 20 yrs.
