Motive: Louis Thompson has known Peter Mccoll for over 20 years, in fact, the two of them both attended the same university located in Riverside, California and were very close friends. After graduating, they decided to get jobs together as teachers at a Secondary School in Los Angeles. Louis working as a History teacher and Peter as an English teacher. They remained working in the same environment for the next few years, occasionally doing other things outside of their work, but they still remained steadily focused on their jobs, but in very different ways. Louis began to grow greedy, he wanted to be more than just a History teacher. He wanted to become the principal, and be in control of the entire school. He wanted more money and more power. Peter on the other hand aspired to be the best teacher he could, and to not only teach his students, but build positive relationships with them and inspire them to use their imaginations. Peter's attitude towards teaching ended up getting him promoted to Vice Principal. Louis was furious. He fiercely believed that it should of been him who got promoted, not Peter.
