This must be the transcript of a live report. Its good that it was intended to focus on the tone of the crowd but not much else.
I am personally saddened that US citizens are so excited about his murder. We are a nation that tries to spread democracy around the world, whether others like it or not, yet we denied him due process. Even when us commoners have a close one murdered, does a person being sentenced to death really bring closure?

Good to the extent that it draws attention to a larger issue, no so much because it was very biased.
The article presents an assessment of the school from the perspective of a student and guardian who are both pleased with the structure and atmosphere synonymous with the school. Unfortunately, this is a very one sided scope and presents the school as the “last best hope” for children the low-income students it serves.
