Calif. student suspended for poem about Conn. school massacre

Wednesday, January 2, 2013

KGO-TV reports that a high school senior in San Francisco has been suspended over a poem she wrote concerning the Dec. 14 killings of children and school staff in Newtown, Conn.

“I understand the killings in Connecticut. I know why he pulled the trigger,” said Courtni Webb, 17, the suspended student.

A teacher reportedly found the poem in class. School officials reacted quickly, suspending Webb immediately. She faces the possibility of expulsion, KGO said. Webb said in her defense that her poem was “just talking about society.”
