Yesterday morning, a 5th grader from Trinity Elementary School tried to set fire to the T2 bus, scorching three seats in the back of the bus.
This child has previously been punished at school for having a lighter and yet when principal Briceno was called to assist in the incident, he said he was too busy to go outside.
The incident was not reported to the police, the child was not punished and out on the playground for recess after his lunch period.
Trinity's children lives are at risk. How do you think the parents of the children on the T2 bus would feel if they knew about yesterday mornings events?
Could the fact that Mr. Briceno may or may not be tenured in the next few weeks be the reason for keeping this story quiet.
