Australia Alleged inappropriate behaviour by staff member at Richardson Primary School being investigated by police
This Is the Recent Mass Shooting That Could End in Execution
Both Robert Aaron Long and Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa were arrested last month for allegedly carrying out high-profile shooting sprees that killed a large number of people. Both crimes have revived our national debates about guns. But only one of the men has a realistic chance of ending up on death row. Colorado, where Alissa will face trial, is one of 23 states to have abolished the death penalty. Georgia, where Long was arrested, is one of 27 that still have the punishment on the books. It’s also among a smaller subset of 15 states that have actually executed someone in the last decade, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
Police are investigating allegations of inappropriate behaviour by a staff member at a Canberra primary school after multiple students raised concerns over the behaviour last year.
Parents from Richardson Primary School in Canberra's south received a letter in November which revealed "multiple students" in one class had made complaints against a staff member.
The letter said the matter was being investigated by the ACT Education Directorate and that the staff member had been stood down in the interim.

"The ACT Education Directorate has referred this matter to ACT Policing for assessment and consideration," a spokesperson said.
"As the matter is being considered, we are unable to comment further."
Allegations of 'serious nature': principal

"I am writing to inform you that a number of students ... have made allegations of inappropriate behaviour by a [staff member] that has been working in your child's class," Ms Wilson said in the letter.
"Due to the very serious nature of the allegations, the staff member will not be at our school whilst I work with the Reportable Conduct team within our directorate to conduct a thorough investigation.
