I hope this poor excuse for an educator goes to prison for his crimes. Animal cruelty should not be taught by schools. Thanks for the story James.

And they wonder why our Children are the way they are. What was he doing with a Gun at school anyway?
Such a good example to our kids kill the pesky animals. I hope they throw the book at him. He is not what we need in our schools. Scary to think that this is how he handles a simple situation. I wonder how he deals with the kids when they are out of line.
I voted no

Do you think the principal was justified in killing the kittens?
No 89%
Yes 11%

It's the 11% that worries me. What is wrong with these people?

Out of 3, 600 about 400 people think it is okay to murder two little kittens. That is just disgusting!

I noted this earlier on someone elses post but it deserves to be noted again !

How can anyone condone this. This is all wrong..... I don't even know if I believe the principle first of all. There's no mention of even trying to go near or capture the kittens. Doing this on school grounds is also unacceptable.... That's enough right there for a conviction !! I'm not hearing the entire story .I don't think any of us are.

I don't know.I wouldn't want the kittens to die or suffer either but shooting would not be the first thing I would do. Well,personally I would never do it. It just doesn't sound like even one attempt was made to capture them . They were so young and a good chance of being caught. Maybe even walking over to someone if they sat on the ground.
