    SNIP TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A stabbing at John Tyler High School has taken the life of Todd R. Henry.
    Tyler police are investigating the horrific situation that happened just before 9am Wednesday morning. According to Tyler Police Chief Gary Swindle, Henry was stabbed in the neck. Police do have a juvenile suspect in custody.
    The school was placed on lock-down just after the incident. Parents began picking up their children at 10:45am. None of the other Tyler ISD schools are dismissed. Teachers are telling KLTV they have been informed that classes will be held as usual Thursday.
    The church across the street from John Tyler (New Life Community Church) says they are opening their doors to anyone who may want to come pray. SNIP

    Another example of the need for metal detectors and police officers on campus. I wonder if it was a special needs child that did this. I know I read the article and it said that "special needs" was what he was trained in and dealt with.

    I don't think the predominant race of a school matters nor does the race of the teacher. That offends me. According to Wikipedia the demographics are almost a 50% split between African Americans and Hispanics. The kids at Columbine were white and the school predominantly white. I don't care about the color of anyones skin when it comes to school violence. It could have just as easily been same race stabbing. Until we know the motivation behind stabbing considering he dealt with special needs children I don't think race matters. MOO!

    As of the 2006-2007 school year, the student population consisted of

    46.2% African American
    46.0% Hispanic
    7.2% White (Non-Hispanic)
    0.4% Asian/Pacific Islander
    0.1% American Indian
