School named after 'revolutionary' murderer

(The Blaze) In what critics are sure to call yet another example of indoctrination in the public school system, California officials not only ?named? an elementary school after a revolutionary Mexican-American murderer — they are staunchly defending the decision.

Tiburcio Vasquez was a notorious California bandit who lived in the late 19th century, according to the USC library, who started his career in crime at the young age of 14 when he stabbed a constable at a party. From there, he spent decades robbing, murdering, and likely having at least one affair with a married woman.
