My wife went to Workman High School and was a cheerleader. The La Puente girl cheerleaders always gave the visiting cheerleaders very angry dirty looks, wanted to fight, and threw rocks at the Workman bus after games. Not at all friendly. What was weird was that the Workman High School neighborhood and the La Puente High School are pretty much the same neighborhood and equally ghetto. Also, as an adult I have driven past La Puente HS and the students look kind of ghetto. I just saw a sea of male teens wearing extra long white t-shirts and chola looking girls. Didnt see any crime going on but I could see a foreign born teacher not really understanding the La Puente culture and being paranoid.
why do people in Covina think Covina is not Ghetto. IT IS, my sister lives there. First of all there is violnce everywhere. What city do you know that dosn't have violence. As far as the dress cose in La puente HS. It is not even allowed to wear plain white T-Shirts. Stop lying. Also what you say about La Puente and Workman it is not even like that. Your crazy.

What is "kind of ghetto", to you? What year was your wife a cheerleader? The cheerleader now are very friendly. I know some of them. Anyways, if your wife went to Workman you should know that the are suppose to be rivals. That exists in all districts.

The man is a racist and sexist, and incompetent. He should have been fired years ago.

Rivalry is one thing but the Puente cheerleaders wanted to fight and kick the Workman cheerleaders behinds. Very angry. Very intimidating. No other school was like according to my wife. Wife also said Puente cheerleaders wore make up like cholas. Wife had chola friends and knows what a chola looks like.

As for ghetto, my definition is young latino/a not graduating high school,getting the GED, buying a Acura with 1000 dollar set of rims, not going to college, and working at Rite Aid until they die. Or 85% of my neices and nephews

It should also concern everyone to know that he also had two knives, 1 on his person and 1 in his desk. And yes a gun in his desk. It scares me to think of what could have been had those weapons got into the wrong hands. I can't believe that anyone in their right minds would even think that this was ok!!!! I would bet my life that had another columbine incident happened here we would not be so nice with regards to our comments.

well children i was in mr k's class my jr year and he is a discusting raciest man. and i say that with the upmost respect. i mean a teacher should not go around calling girls babe and asking them personal questions and he of all people should not be talking about mexicans as he did. he was a good teacher in the sence that he kept us awake thru the whole class but no no no he for one thing loved to start fights no joke he could never be wrong and he always had to have the last word. i remember once he said that he knew the law like the back of his hand and that he could have 2 girl sitting on his lap in class and they couldnt do anything to him cuz its not against the law well sorry mr but it is! he just a weirdo! who loved to make enemys and trust this lil insident isnt his first and wont be last! his ass should get thrown in jail for a couple months so that he womnt be able to talk crap about trhe "home dawds" as he calls them "okay babe".. ew! i hate him!(mostly for personal reasons) yet he is a disturbing man and maybe he should get clothes that is a lil bigger cuz i use to get grossed out by his fav cky nipple popping white tee ew! oh and all you ignorant people trash talking lp! suck it cuz its a real pretty place to live and its not gehtto at all alright so shut up!

The gun was contained and stored inside of a lock box.
Now the poor guy is charged with a felony.
He get's treated like a criminal and is now suspended from the classroom.
What a joke. This state is run like a regime and the law is backwards to benefit the criminals.
Dude, exactly. I heard the exact same thing, he didn't even take it out. It had never been used, he said it was just for self defense himself. They make such a big deal, he was just defending himself. The area isn't as dangerous as everyone thinks it is on here though. You think this is ghetto, PLEASE! Go to central La or go see the rest of the world.
