    Boy held after teacher's death closes schools in Danvers, Massachusetts

    14-year-old arrested in murder of Massachusetts teacher, Danvers schools closed for investigation | Fox News


    (CNN) -- The suburban Boston town of Danvers, Massachusetts, shut down all seven of its schools Wednesday after a teacher's body was found in woods behind the high school.

    Authorities found Colleen Ritzer's body behind Danvers High School after she was reported missing Tuesday, according to the Essex County District Attorney's office. Searchers found blood in a second-floor bathroom, according to the prosector's office.

    A 14-year-old boy is in custody, authorities said.
    No gun involved apparently, although CNN had to get the word "gun" in the story at the end somehow.

    Who would have thought being a teacher was as dangerous as being a police officer?

    Teachers have know this for very long time now. If you teach in a big city high school you have to be able to not only control but sometimes intimidate people that lots of folks would cross the street to avoid coming even near to.

    Sad story for sure.

    Here's the local reporting: Boston Herald

    No report as to what happened or what if any weapon was used.

    The only mention of gun was this comment:

    Ritzer's death comes the same week as the death of a teacher who tried to stop a student with a gun at a middle school in Sparks, Nevada.
    Not sure why that is a bad thing, they didn't mention a weapon in THIS case.

    And who would have thought you would extrapolate that conclusion from this article?

    Why couldn't have it just read, "Ritzer's death comes the same week as the murder of a teacher in Sparks, Nevada."

    Hyperbole to make a point. The classroom is becoming an increasingly dangerous place. Today's culture encourages kids to deal with their hurt feelings in the most absolutely violent way possible, and teachers are getting caught in the middle more and more.

    Why does it matter one way or the other? It doesn't

    Danvers isn't a big city. Its a suburb of Boston. Just like most suburbs, it ranges from really nice to crappy. So rather diverse.

    The local reports on this kid is painting a pretty crappy picture. Bastard went to a movie right after killing her. Fortunately, he'll be tried as an adult.
