DAILYKENN.com -- A 70-year-old white teacher was schooled on tolerance and diversity while being held captive for seven hours in the land of Gov. Jerry Brown, (Moonbat).
A male teacher was punched in the face moments before the standoff after confronting the suspect, who refused to sign in after entering the school.

Police fatally shot a man who barricaded himself in a classroom at a California elementary school, where he held a 70-year-old teacher hostage for seven hours on Tuesday.
Luvelle Kennon, 27, died at the hospital after he was shot by a SWAT team at the Castle View Elementary School around 6 p.m., according to Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback.
The 70-year-old hostage, identified by family members as first-grade teacher Linda Montgomery, sustained minor injuries and is expected to survive.
Kennon, whose daughter is a first-grade student at the school, had his car keys confiscated Tuesday morning by another family member, his uncle Carl Jackson told ABC.
“He had a breakdown, and he relapsed again. That’s all, he’s not dangerous,” Jackson said before the standoff ended.
Kennon, who appeared at the school around 11:15 a.m., was stopped by substitute teacher after he failed to sign in at the front desk, according to the Riverside Unified School District spokesperson Justin Grayson.
Kennon punched the substitute teacher in the face, knocking him down and breaking his nose before he took Montgomery hostage inside an empty classroom, police said.
Students at the school were safely evacuated, and the standoff lasted for seven hours before a SWAT team stormed the classroom, citing a growing fear for Montgomery’s safety, Railsback said.
Kennon had a backpack with him, Railsback said. It remains unclear whether he was armed and why he took Montgomery hostage.
The school has canceled classes for the rest of the week.
