OMG! Look What Boston Marathon Runners Just Did.

Boston magazine had almost wrapped up its May edition on April 15. That’s the date the Boston Marathon was attacked. The front page was scrapped and a new one commissioned. It had to be a page that captured the iconic race and reflect the incredible people of Boston who came together during the tragedy.Check out the new front cover below. Take a moment, scroll to the bottom of the page, and read the story of how this running-shoe tribute was created. Generally I wouldn't advise anyone to share sneakers, but these 120 shoes deserve to be shared with the whole world.

Why should a superintendent get a raise while teachers in the same district struggling to make ends meet see their paychecks flatline — year after year after year?

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave begged the question. Minutes later, she was handcuffed and placed in the backseat of a cop car.

The scene was captured below by YouTube user Chris Rosa, who attended a board meeting for Vermilion Parish Schools in Louisiana.

You can watch Hargrave begin speaking about 33 seconds in. The situation starts becoming contentious around 6:35 minutes. Hargrave is arrested at 8:35, and then walked outside in handcuffs and placed in the back of police vehicle. (Story continues below.)



"We work very hard with very little to maintain the salaries that we have," Hargrave, who teaches middle school language arts, said during a public comment portion of the meeting, stating that she's seen classroom sizes balloon during her time at the school with no increased compensation. "We're meeting those goals, while someone in that position of leadership [the superintendent] is getting raise? It's a sad, sad day to be a teacher in Vermilion Parish."
