Principal Resigns After Calling Kobe Bryant’s Death “Karma”
A high school principal in Camas, Washington has resigned after suggesting that NBA all-star Kobe Bryant deserved to die in the helicopter crash that killed him and 8 other people, including his 13-year-old daughter.

She was referring to allegations made by a 19-year-old hotel employee in 2003. Bryant denied the rape but admitted to a consensual tryst with the accuser.
