    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    "I think it is unacceptable," said Kevin Clark, who was nearby when the bus came to a stop.

    MBTA detectives spent Tuesday evening processing the crime scene, looking for evidence and clues as to what happened.

    "It's crazy, it's crazy. These are kids. These are high school kids," Clark said. "They are not grown ups."

    There's no word on if anyone has been arrested.

    The incident remains under investigation.
