Principal sorry for suggesting Kobe Bryant deserved death

Principal sorry for suggesting Kobe Bryant deserved death

According to CNN, a Washington state high school principal has been placed on administrative leave after she said "karma caught with a rapist" following the helicopter crash that killed nine people including Bryant.

The post, which removed a short time later, was in reference to a 2003 case in which Bryant faced rape charges involving a 19-year-old woman. Prosecutors dropped the criminal case September 1, 2004, after the accuser decided not to testify.

Bryant, daughter Gianna, and seven others died January 26 when the helicopter crashed into a hillside outside Los Angeles in foggy weather.

"On January 26 after news broke of Kobe Bryant's death, I made a comment to my private social media which was a personal, visceral reaction", she wrote.

"Our priority is always the safety of our students and staff", Superintendent Jeff Snell wrote to parents. "On the basketball courtroom, you're not my good friend, and I'm not your good friend, and it's both kill or be killed". Bryant released a statement, negotiated by lawyers, in which he recognized the woman did not view their sexual encounter as consensual and later settled a civil lawsuit with the woman. I want to apologize for suggesting that a person's death is deserved.

The district is investigating the Facebook post, KGW reports.

She also apologized for the disruption her post caused at school and referred to it as "a personal, visceral reaction". "Even if there's a few times that we've been at a club at the same time, Kobe's not the kind of guy, never been, like, 'Lis, go get that girl, or tell her, or send her this.' I have other National Basketball Association friends that are like that". "We communicated with our community last night, my teachers yesterday, and then the students today. We also teach our students that what we share online has permanency".

Thomas also played the 16th hole at the Phoenix Open wearing Bryant's No. 33 jersey from Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. "I've learned an important lesson and I hope that I can earn your trust back".

"He was really making change", Leslie told "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King in her Florida home. Especially when she's in such a place of power that she is right now. "She represents the school and that's how everyone's gonna see this town and this school". Many students at Camas High School will stage a walkout in protest of her actions.

"Honestly, I think she should step down, personally", he said. She says she regrets the message and shouldn't have posted it.
