(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.
