Malice aforethought: BoE calculated this move to destroy a community

The school board's decision to abolish Seven Locks Elementary School completely, instead of building a "replacement" school on Kendale Road or compromising with a modernization of the existing school, was a calculated and malicious attack on the community.

For more than 40 years, the school has united several different and diverse neighborhoods who otherwise would have little in common.

But the community wouldn't let Weast and the school board have their way, so, like Saddam Hussein burning his own country's oil fields, they would rather destroy an entire school if they can't have their way.

This is out-of-control government at its worst. It transcends party lines. It's time to see what's behind it all.
