Students react following murder of Massachusetts teacher

On the backdrop of the latest American school tragedy, one that has left a beloved teacher dead and a Massachusetts community in mourning, on Wednesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited a pair of students to offer their reactions.

"When I had found out that Miss Ritzer was murdered in the school, it was devastating, it was surreal," said Brianna Wallis, a student. "There was nothing that I could understand. I didn't know how someone could kill someone that was so innocent."

Colleen Ritzer is believed to have been killed by Philip Chism, a 14-year-old student at the Danvers High School where the 24-year-old educator taught.

"I didn't know anything of the relationship," said Paige Strauch, who, like Wallis, had Ritzer as a teacher. "I thought he was a good student. He seemed like a good kid that would never do anything like this."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Wallis and Strauch, as the pair go on to offer insight from Wednesday evening's vigil at Danvers High School. And for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Did I just hear Mr. Morgan talk to two 15 year old girls that just lost their teacher and say "It must have been a hell of a shock". Was that inappropriate or am I being to picky...

    Sen. Ted Cruz's remark on Obamacare, email scammers upsets Nigerian community
    Tuesday, October 22, 2013
    Supporters of the Lone Star senator cheered him on, but one statement in particular has some members of the Nigerian community upset.

    "Have you all noticed, you know the Nigerian email scammers? They've been a lot less active lately, because they've all been hired to run the Obamacare websites," Cruz said during a public appearance at a Houston rally.

    Dear Mr Morgan,
    Current technologies can easily solve handgun attacks at schools and other sectors. The issue who would invest in research to implement these technologies to stop or reduce these attacks. Regards

    Hmm
    Hey Morgan
    Perhaps the US should have mandatory registration of box cutters.
    That's it, we need box cutter control.

    Before we rush to judgement, I'd like to see the alleged video of the kid allegedly dragging the teacher into the woods and hear the audio of his alleged confession. Also, was he read his miranda rights? Where was his lawyer. Police coerce confessions, fabricate evidence and anonymously make false statements to the press all the time, particularly when it comes to black defendants, to sway public opinion. This way, the fuzz doesn't have to go out and actually find the real killer. They'd much rather use their resources to stop and frisk, confiscate our guns and give routine traffic tickets.
