No one was hurt? The teacher lost their car for a while, was subjected to horrendous fear, school was the site of a crime, another felonious car theft was discovered when the perp left it, probably out of gas, near the school before stealing another. terrorism, 2 grand theft auto crimes, and carrying (probably stolen) weapon on school property. Perp should get at least 25 years in the pen for this no matter their age, race, or sexual preference
