Sonora High School was put on lockdown for two hours after a student was stabbed around 7:40 a.m. today, police said.As usual, the commentariat is a good read for piecing together the rest of the story. In particular, La Habraites (La Habrans?) don't like the tainted image this type of thing brings:
The 17-year-old victim was stabbed outside of a classroom by a 17- to 19-year-old male who has not yet been identified, police said.
The student was reportedly taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange. Police said that his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
La Habra undoubtedly has its seedy parts just like every other city in America. I've lived in L.H. for 24 years, went to H.S. at Sonora, and work in La Habra. The people who say La Habra is the "hood" are probaby from some rich south county city who have been fed with a golden spoon their whole lives. Sonora is a California Distinguished School,a few times actually. On it's faculty is a former California State Teacher of the Year and the city as a whole is a positive place. Don't judge an entire city just because we aren't located by the beach or because a stupid kid makes headlines for trying to be a thug...crime doesn't happen anywhere else in the O.C.?
