Black teacher stabs white teacher with a screwdriver
The black teacher stabbed the white one about 16 times in a crowded hallway, so she can't claim that it was an accident or that someone else did it. It was also recorded on closed-circuit TV. The black teacher, Ronette Ricketts, 40, has been charged with first-degree attempted assault and second-degree assault, both felonies, and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a misdemeanor. Ricketts is accused of brandishing a screwdriver and striking the white teacher numerous times in the face, back and upper torso in a second-floor hallway, police said.
