The purported target is a veteran educator who teaches third-grade students with learning disabilities including attention deficit disorder, delayed development and hyperactivity, friends and parents said.

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.

I will not ascribe the likely political persuasion of any of the kids parents.

Nope, I will not do it.

We don’t need no education

We don’t need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom...

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.

Someone, somewhere, is surely wanting to hire these kids on as management.

How long until some Freepers who defend every student under all circumstances, comes screaming on this thread trashing the teacher/school and saying that these poor children should not be held responsible because they are just too young and immature (and maybe “learning disabled”), and thus are not capable of understanding the severity of their actions?

Can you imagine what might have happened if one of the kids had brought a DRAWING of a gun to school?

Nobody has the ba—s enough to discipline their kids anymore. It’s not politically correct, and so these kids have grown up not knowing any consequences.

I fear for our future.

"This is an isolated incident, an aberration. ... We have good kids," Center Principal Angie Coleman told the newspaper.

The principal said this???

There are two key factors in this incident that seem to be on the increase.

One is, and I have noticed this more and more, that today’s children and teens seem to have some enormous difficulty with being criticized or disciplined. I wonder if this is because our society now pampers and extols the virtues of children beyond anything that is healthy.

The other is that the children are so warped that they even think up these things. I never had thoughts like this so much as cross my mind back when I was a child. I was innocent. There is no such thing here anymore; or it is rare indeed.

Having one child assigned to cleanup suggests murder was their goal.

Where can they keep these deranged kids so they cannot continue on their murderous path? Clearly they’ll always be a menace to society.
