"I'll Kill You," He Explained
We have many questions about this incident.
Who reported it to police? Did the witnesses and the alleged victim believe that Mark Duncan, the 50-year-old administrator in question, was seriously threatening the young man's life? Was Duncan holding a gun at the time? A knife? A razor? Did he ever put his hands on the student?
Does Duncan have a history of shooting, beating or killing students? What did the "victim" say to Duncan that provoked such an intemperate response?
Is it not ironic that the last assistant principal in Southeast Delco to get into serious trouble, Rich Joseph, did so for allegedly saying to a student, "I love you." At least he wasn't criminally charged, just fired, only to be rehired a year later when the school decided the charges against him were baloney.
Certainly, if Duncan angrily said to a recalcitrant student, "I'll kill you," that would be cause for his bosses to have a conversation with him and maybe even bring disciplinary action.
But criminal charges? As we said, we need to know more.
