Shaun Harrison, dean of Boston's English High School, has been sentenced to 26 years in prison for shooting one of his students. Prosecutors say that soon after arriving at the school, Harrison recruited Luis Rodriguez to sell marijuana for him. When sales were not as brisk as Harrison wanted, he shot Rodriguez.

  1. He’s very strict.

    1. My Whole month’s on-line financial gain is $2287. i’m currently ready to fulfill my dreams simply and reside home with my family additionally. I work just for two hours on a daily basis. everybody will use this home profit system by this link……… http://easyjob.club

      1. Will they shoot me if I don’t perform as expected?

        1. As long as you don’t chew gum in line you should be fine.

        2. Yes, that’s exactly what they do!

          They also make you reside with your family “additionally,” which means you stay in a dilapidated trailer out behind the house.

          I know this because my friend’s husband’s neighbor’s sister, who just bought a green Audi, told me the details.

        3. No. Their entire point is to harvest your organs.

      2. So . . $2287?

        Basically a normal month working slightly above minimum wage?

    2. My closest companion’s ex makes Bucks55/hr on the PC. She has been jobless for eight months yet a month ago her wage with huge extra was over Bucks8000 simply chipping away at the workstation for a couple of hours. Read more on this site….. howtoearn.club

      1. Good sarc; I nearly spammed you.

  2. Back in my day, when we didn’t move enough drugs for our teachers, we’d just have to stay after school and clean erasers. I’d end up covered in white dust like Al Pacino in Scarface, but in my case, in was just chalk dust.

  3. If Boston English High had declared their school to be a gun-free zone, all of this could have been avoided.

  4. Well, it is clear why Amazon is considering Boston for a second headquarters, the education system.

    1. No way on Boston. Winters slows business and Massachusetts has high taxes.

    2. He should’ve just sold his drugs through Amazon fba

  5. I’m conflicted whenever someone floats the idea that arming teachers is the solution to school shootings.

    On the one hand, I think restrictions on firearms are as useless as restrictions on drugs, alcohol, etc…, and I think in general never knowing when someone is armed tends to promote civil behavior, so I wouldn’t stop a teacher from being armed.

    On the other hand, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that at least two of my teachers would have shot me any number of times in my academic career.

    1. Only two? I can count twelve. Clearly you were not trying hard enough.

      1. Yeah, I can think of maybe two teachers who wouldn’t have shot me.

    2. Not “arm teachers.”

      Simply stop disarming teachers.

  6. What kind of pussy highschool has low drug sales.

  7. But after a dispute over slumping sales, Harrison shot the teen in the back of the head with a .380 pistol as they walked on a snowy city street in 2015 and left him for dead…

    If we’d pay teachers the millions we pay NFL players, they wouldn’t have to resort to acting like NFL players to make money.

  8. But where duz he paaac hiz kaaar?

    1. Hahvahd Yahd, of course. But cars aren’t allowed in there.

  9. That photo is RACIST!

    1. Yeah! Everyone knows white teachers don’t carry guns. That’s the fucking problem! Or??? is it a pun, he’s “armed” and has a gun, but no head?

  10. You left out the best part!

    BOSTON ? Shaun Harrison was a Boston high school dean and anti-violence advocate known by students as “Rev” for his pastor-like demeanor.

  11. That’s the problem with using a low power round like the .380.

    If he had used a 9?19mm Parabellum or a 45 ACP he would be walking the streets a free man.

    1. That’s the problem with not having mandatory firearms training for all citizens.
      Teach them properly about ballistics.

      Really? “shoot him in the back of the head”?
      The bullet entered near Rodriguez’s right ear and just missed his carotid artery, breaking his jawbone and causing nerve damage and hearing loss.
      Reads like he shot him in the side of the head on a slight downward trajectory. Not efficient at all.
