Knappa, OR: Vandals Shut Down School District


Vandals swinging axes or baseball bats broke every window of a small northwest Oregon high school, and the district shut down classes for the day.

The Knappa district along the Columbia River in Clatsop County has only two schools— the high school where vandals left shards of expensive double-pane class Monday morning and the adjacent elementary school.

The elementary school, too, was closed, so the pupils would not be exposed to the profanity and obscene gestures in the graffiti the vandals left. It included a bomb threat.

There were four or five vandalism incidents last year, but the schools' rural location makes them hard to prevent.

so true yet so ignorant. What you dont realize is taht no matter how much vandalism is commited onto us and our school, you don't fuck with this family. you fail to mention that during the days of no class, more than 80 percent of the attending students went to sweep glass and board up windows. Also, myself and a group of friends along with two teachers and the principle stayed the night the second night to keep watch. You fail to realize that we are so close knit that you cant screw with us and expect not to get caught. as for "hard to prevent" the vandals (wielding crowbars) were caught, put into jail, and the older of the two (tim paul, 18) and the younger of the two (16) were put into jail and juenile hall (respectively) within a week of the incident. Paul is facing 108 days in jail and 3 years probation. How's that for "Hard to prevent"? let them be an example for any copy cat vandals.
