Third Grade Murder Plot Foiled

Waycross, Ga. —Relying on an informant, police were able to stop the murder of thirde grade teacher Ms. Belle Carter. 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 Tuesday.

The special needs students were organized. A kids plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape, mittens and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward.

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.”

    This truly shows that most parents dont care enough to make sure they’re kids are not participating in anything like this. Maybe parents should pay more attention to their children. This is insane and these children need to be taught a lesson. Maybe we should go back to old times where parents paddled kids, and schools could too. Who knows, maybe our children would be more diciplined. Whatever we are doing now, or not doing its NOT working.

    Yes and no. I fully agree that the basic responsibility lays strictly at the parent’s feet. If more parents were pro-active, the schools wouldn’t be so Gestapo like with their zero tolerance rules.

    In this case I feel that the kids are getting the shaft. They’re in 3rd grade for Christ sake!! They brought MITTENS!! They are in special ed.

    Apparently they were reacting to a previous suspension. What they needed then and now is a note home to Mom and Dad followed by a good spanking.

    My child was threatened with suspension for assault with a deadly weapon. Weapon of choice?
    A cookie. He was in 2nd grade and told a girl at lunch, “If you like me you’d eat that cookie in one bite.” She did but them kacked it up on her tray. She didn’t know what to do so she asked a janitor for help cleaning up. By the time it got to the dean it was “Assault”.

    2 things. They weren’t in the kind of special ed people normally think about. They were kids with stuff like ADHD and dislexia, not mental retardation. Secondly, mittens could be used to prevent fingerprints, which is the kind of stuff kids can watch on CSI these days.

    I know all about ADHD, trust me. But they were in THIRD GRADE!

    To clear up some matters – the kids were not in a special education class. They were in an EIP class (early intervention). This simply means the students were in a smaller class size so they could get more individual help.

    IEP!!! That strengthens my point. My son is graduating high school after 6 years of having an IEP. Until we got him into a school that took IEP (Individual Education Plan/Program) seriously he was always labeled a criminal.

    I always asked three questions to those who wanted to expel or sometimes jail him.

    1. Is this an ADD/ODD issue?
    2. Is this normal child llike behavior and the scholl is overreacting?
    3. Did he do wrong?

    If three was the case the school was always stunned to see me push for punishment. While if ADD/ODD was at issue I gave fair warning that someone’s career was on the line.

    These kids are not a number 3.
