Superintendent Addresses Security in Wake of Rape Arrests at Rockville High

Superintendent Jack Smith

In an open letter on the Montgomery County Public Schools website, Superintendent Jack Smith said the school system cannot provide any more information about an alleged rape that took place at Rockville High School.

“I know community members have many questions about this serious incident. To ensure we do not unintentionally prejudice an ongoing investigation, MCPS cannot provide any additional details about this specific case at this time,” Smith’s letter reads.

Smith says he believes law enforcement will make more information available in the coming weeks.

He said student safety is the school system’s top priority, “and a responsibility that we do not take lightly.”

The post also includes a letter from Rockville High principal Billie-Jean Bensen that was sent home to school parents on Friday.

    Two dangerous and violent “DREAMERs,” both illegals from Guatemala, were arrested for brutally raping a 14-year-old girl right in a Maryland high school bathroom. The two males are both past high school age but were put into the 9th grade with 14 and 15 year old American children even as they should never have been allowed into government funded schools at all.

    Those of Montgomery County who allowed these two illegal aliens to stay and to enter a public school (!!) are equally guilty of this horrible crime.
