Default Cops: 3rd-Graders Aimed to Hurt Teacher

Cops: 3rd-Graders Aimed to Hurt Teacher

WAYCROSS, Ga. (AP) - A group of third-graders plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward, police said Tuesday.

The plot by as many as nine boys and girls at Center Elementary School in south Georgia was a serious threat, Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner said.

"We did not hear anybody say they intended to kill her, but could they have accidentally killed her? Absolutely," Tanner said. "We feel like if they weren't interrupted, there would have been an attempt. Would they have been successful? We don't know."

The children, ages 8 and 9, were apparently mad at the teacher because she had scolded one of them for standing on a chair, Tanner said. A prosecutor said they are too young to be charged with a crime under Georgia law.

School officials alerted police Friday after a pupil tipped off a teacher that a girl had brought a weapon to school, Tanner said.

Police seized a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape, electrical and transparent tape, ribbons and a crystal paperweight from the students, who apparently intended to use them against the teacher, Tanner said...

Wow, the 3rd graders. WE ARE evolving fast, aren't we? I think, I was like I couldn't even spell my name right when I was in 3rd grade, or like couldn't even tell which is my right or left side, you know.

And to think my daugther will be in 3rd grade this year. Hmm.

I see stuff like this everyday. Not to this extreme of course, but there is SUCH a lack of respect in our schools its sick. We were just having a gripe session about this today.

I balme the media and advertisers

Not to take this in another direction, but you have to wonder how much the parents of these kids were involved in their lives.

I dont know how many times ive tried to contact parents of failing or misbehaving students. If you can get someone (BIG IF) You usually get some choice 4 letter words. I can jsut imagine wht their lives at home are like.

Sometimes I feel we gotta put the onus on the kids as well and not just blame parents.

Fair enough, when they're a little older. I don't see how you can blame a 10 year old for this sort of behavior. They learned it somewhere.

The saddest part is that the state generally protects these kinds of parents and punishes good parents who make a mistake. My wife and I found that out first hand.
