I got a bunch of messages from folks asking why KIPP was on lockdown earlier this week – now we know why and it is awful. From the Washington Post:
“The incident occurred in a middle-school classroom at KIPP DC Key Academy in the 4800 block of Benning Road SE, according to the school and a police report. The report said the boy and girl were arguing “about a pencil” shortly before 12:30 p.m. when the boy brandished a pocket knife and threatened to stab the girl.
He then lifted his shirt, showing the girl a loaded Beretta pistol, police said.”
Thanks to Hershel for sending:
“Apparently if you hit a telephone pole going fast enough, that motherf***** will snap in half. 49th & Central Ave. NE Eastbound commute on East Capitol will probably be slow going.”
