It's sad that it's 2 weeks later, and this armed robbery on public high school property is the first I'm hearing about it. It should have been news the day it happened. Our community children go to this school, and regardless of whether or not this was a school day or not (day before Thanksgiving), it sickens me to think that this even occurred in our community. Please keep us updated as to whether this thug was caught.

Believe me, If it had happened at WJ, BCC, or Churchill High School, it would have been on that nights news, and every parent would have been notified. Dougie C in Kensington

I found out through a neighbor that this took place,or I would have never known. This is so wrong I have a handicap sister that walks one of my dogs during the day.How sad that now she cannot have this pleasure of going for a walk in broad daylight around the fields of Einstein.
