Hundreds of friends, family, and students marched on Philadelphia school district headquarters late this afternoon. The protestors blocked the streets outside while several were arrested inside attempting to block the doors of the auditorium. The School Reform Commission was planning on holding a meeting to vote on a final decision regarding the closure of 27 schools. Philadelphia Police say that 19 were arrested for disorderly conduct for blocking the doors to the auditorium, including Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers national union.

The SRC voted tonight to spare 4 schools, and close 23. See list at the bottom.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput announced today that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia plans to sell or lease part of the campus of St. Charles. Borromeo Seminary in Lower Merion. The plans include giving up several buildings and up to 45 acres on the “college division” section of the property. Current college division operations and the enrolled seminarians will be moved up to the “theology division” side of campus over the next few years as renovations are completed. The “upper campus” is about 30 acres and will accommodate 200 seminarians and hundreds of full time students after the renovations.

Bucks County investigators have determined that the shot that killed 89-year-old Marie Zienkewicz during the February 19th stand-off between Warminster police and her up-stairs neighbor Andrew Cairns was fired by law enforcement. Police responded to the Jefferson on the Creek apartments at 675 East Street Road because Cairns threatened to kill himself. Cairns fired at police and they returned fire. Although the bullet that killed Zienkewicz came from a police officer's gun, Cairns will be charged with her murder for starting the incident. After a long standoff he eventually surrendered. Cairns is charged with homicide, attempted homicide, assaulting a police officer, eight counts of aggravated assault, nine counts of recklessly endangering another person and related offenses..

Smith is charged with rape, robbery, sexual assault, theft, simple assault and other offenses.
