Word on the street!

School related tragedies dominate this week’s news wrap up. Catch up on what’s going on in your world!

1.       A Massachusetts high school teacher was found dead on Tuesday allegedly at the hands of 14-year-old Philip Chism.

2.       In another school killing, a 12-year-old alleged bullying victim in Nevada shot and killed a teacher and two fellow students 

before turning the gun on himself. 

3.       Following some extremely racist comments he made on The Daily Show with Aasif Mandvi, Don Yelton, a GOP precinct chair in Buncombe County, North Carolina was forced to resign. 

4.       You might be getting your legalized weed sooner than you think. A Gallup poll revealed that Americans are for legalizing the already commonly used substance for the first time ever. 

5.       Police tracked down and question the man responsible for driving his BMW convertible down the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps (aka the Rocky steps). The video of his feat went viral, obviously.
