MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - McGill-Toolen Catholic High School Assistant Principal John Repoll witnessed the Boston bombing on Monday, April 15.
Now, he is keeping close tabs on the developing news in Boston as authorities continue to search for the second suspected bomber.
Repoll said he wants the second suspect taken into custody alive. Repoll said he hopes the suspect will answer the question on everyone's minds: why?
"Since the incident you feel a part of it, I guess, because you were," Repoll said.
Repoll said he's glad the American people know who's accused of being behind the horrendous crimes that occurred the week of April 15.
"I think (having a suspect) helps because at first you didn't know, and you're always, especially the Bostonians, looking over your shoulder," he said.
"I sense some anger and resentment from the students that this would happen, and I get a sense that they want these people brought to justice as quickly as they can be," said Mark Tenhundfeld, an economics and government teacher at McGill.
Tenhundfeld said the students have been asking questions about government protocol and civil rights in relation to the most recent events.
He also said his economics class researched how much money the Boston Marathon generates per year. The dollar amount they came up with was $140 million.
As time moves on, so will the people of Boston and the rest of the nation who has been affected by the tragedy.
"The American people, they're going to cooperate. And it's not going to be tolerated, and I believe you see that now," Repoll said.
