Cops: 3rd-graders aimed to hurt teacher

WAYCROSS, Ga. - 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.

Nine children have been given discipline up to and including long-term suspension, said Theresa Martin, spokeswoman for the Ware County school system. She would not be more specific but said none of the children had been back to school since the case came to light.

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 scheme involved a division of roles, Tanner said. One child's job was to cover windows so no one could see outside, he said. Another was supposed to clean up after the attack.

"We're not sure at this point in the investigation how many of the students actually knew the intent was to hurt the teacher," Tanner said.

The parents of the students have cooperated with investigators, who aren't allowed to question the children without their parents' or guardians' consent, he said. Authorities have withheld the children's names.

Police expected to forward the results of their investigation to prosecutors, Tanner said.

Children in Georgia can't be charged with a crime unless they are at least 13, District Attorney Rick Currie said.

Martin told The Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville, Fla., that administrators would follow school system policy and state law in disciplining the students.

"From what I understand, they were considered pretty good kids," Martin said. "But we have to take this seriously, whether they were serious or not about carrying this through, and that's what we did."

Four mothers of other third-grade students at Center Elementary called for the immediate expulsion of the suspected plotters.

Stacy Carter and Deana Hiott both cited school system policy stating that an(AP) — y student who brings "anything reasonably considered to be a weapon" is to be expelled for at least the remainder of the school year.

"We don't want our children around them," Carter told the Times-Union. "The one with the knife could have stabbed my child or someone else's child at lunch or out on the playground."

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

    These weren't just normal grade 3's. They were children with ADD, ADHD and hyperactivity! We all know what happens to these kids. They are violent towards their parents, siblings, and clearly their own teachers! I'm really not all that suprised to be honest!

  6. Amanda says – reply to this


    106

    WOW. This has to come from things they have learned on TV and in the movies. How else would such young children learn how to pull of something like this. This is ridiculously scary. Parents need to shield their young children from watching violence on TV… or this is what will happen!!!

  7. 3rd planet says – reply to this


    107

    The better question to ask…WHERE WERE THE PARENTS & WHY DIDN'T THEY KNOW ABOUT THIS!??? Why is this happening? NO parental supervision! Parents don't raise kids anymore, the kids raise themselves. IF there r 2 parents in a home, both work so nobody watches, or pays attention to the kids! Parents r too "tired" to raise their kids. Parents, if u're not going to pay attention to ur kids, DON'T HAVE 'EM!!!!!

    I'll tell you what's wrong with kids today. Lazy parents. People are too God damned lazy to raise their children right….then, they expect schools to do it for them. If the kid turns out to be a fuck up…..and they always are, the parents want to blame the school system for it. Not one parent has the balls to admit they've not done their job….who's the scapegoat? You guessed it… The school system. Bunch of lazy mother fuckers sitting around all God damned day smoking weed, drinking, and collecting a disability check while their kids turn schools into shit. You wanna fix the problem???? Let's hold the food stamps and disability checks until their kids get good grades…lol. Then, you'd see these lazy bastards take an interest.

    Hello Perez,

    I would like to request that you IMMEDIATELY take down that IRRELEVANT photo depicting Chinese students in the classroom to accompany your story that had nothing to do with the Chinese ethnicity. In fact, it was in Georgia, and I know that the photo is from a Chinese classroom because of the banner in the background.

    As a reader of your blog who is of Chinese descent, I am highly OFFENDED that you would choose to put such a photo, especially in light of the heat China is already getting for the situation in Tibet, and the many people who wish to boycott the Olympics.

    Your story had nothing to do with the image, and showing these children of only that one particular descent gives misleading messages about the Chinese community. Imagine if the photo that accompanied it were all Latinos, or Blacks, or any one other cultural minority. I am shocked to see that you, in particular, that is of an ethnic minority has chosen to inadvertently target another minority group for no apparent or relevant reason.

    Please either replace the image with one that pertains to the actual story itself, or take it down completely.

    Thank you,

    -Jen Choy

I went to a private school when some of my teachers treated us like garbage. They would try to intimidtae us with humiliation and bullying. Also, what kind of country is america? students hurting one another, now they are turning against their authority. wake up people! xnax and a new car wont make ur kids happy or less violent.

    Inept parents exist everywhere, but to generalize all parents as idiots is really unfair. It is also ridiculous that people from other countries instantly jump on the "All Americans are stupid" bandwagon. In that vein I guess one can assume that ALL Canadians are lazy weed smokers and ALL British people have horrendous teeth. Ridiculous! There are moronic parents in every city in every country, just as there are excellent parents in every city in every country.

    WTF is wrong with this picture??? I think these kids have severe emotional problems that aren't being dealt with! The parents in this situation need to step up and take responsiblity. Children just don't come up with a plan that devious without some parental misguidance. You can only imagine what these kids get away with at home if they were freaking out over a simple reprimand. You can bet most of these little freaks will be doing time in juvie before long!

    I actually live in this town and my son will go to that school in a couple of years. This is not the only problem that the school system has been having lately. The teachers and bus drivers all over the system are on the verge of quitting their jobs or going on strike, because they feel that the school board and administrators are not backing them up in disciplining the kids. It's a real scandal in our very small town in the Okefenokee swamp.

    I agree with the other guy above who said he didn't pull this kind of sh** in school because he would have got his butt beat. Me too! My dad scared the crap out of me, and I didn't dare pull any crap even remotely close to this insanity! My fathering skills are smiliar to my dad's, and so far my wife and I have raised three kids to well-adjusted adulthood with one more to go. They have to see you as an authority figure and you should never get down on their level and argue with them. Never make idle threats either. If you say it you'd better mean it. I also spanked a couple of my kids when they were being especially horrible, and I don't feel the least bit guilty about it.

    The greatest natural resource any country has is its young people.
    It is not by accident that US kids are falling behind their European and Asian counterparts in terms of understanding critical core components of their education in language, math, and critical thinking.

    This has to be engineered, courtesy of a government that generally wants its population to be as dumb as posts.

    And the reason?

    So they cannot connect the dots of what their government has actually done, and continues to do, to erode civil liberties at home, and wage wars without end overseas.

    150

    This is what OVERPRAISE causes in children. If you constantly tell them they're special, they're perfect, give them little medals just for participating, etc. they get a false sense of entitlement. And that's what leads to crap like this.

  51. Stacy says – reply to this


    151

    First of all you need to change that picture. This has nothing to do with those Chinese students. That is just offensive. Plus, those ignorant assholes out there that still only like to see the pictures in a story are just gonna assume it's them and say stupid racist things.

    Anyways yea wow they must have some nice freakin parents! I would NEVER let my children behave that way! They need to learn some respect!

    Little kids just think they can get away with everything today! I say we shouldn't be afraid to punish kids when they do crap like this. Like they don't know what they were doing…….please! They wanted REVENGE! To hurt the teacher!

    I'm not saying to beat them or throw them in jail, but they definitely are in need of spankings! They need discipline and the government offers them TOO MUCH protection! And they know it and use it to their advantage! I got my ass spanked whenever I acted up and so did everyone I know and we all grew up fine!

    153

    Hey, this story is really serious. I live in this area and it just came on the local news. They are talking about how two children are being charged with conspiracy, according to the news report. So in case you had your doubts. And for those of you who live in other places, the children here in southern Georgia's (esp. the ones with learning disabilities) parents aren't very attentive. I'm not saying this is always the case but many times it is. These children are neglected and act out wherever they think they can get attention. Unfortunately that means it usually happens at school. In many of these children's eyes even bad attention is more than they get at home and is desirable in their eyes.

    We don't want to hear any more claims from the entertainment industry that children are not influenced by negative TV programs and movies. Such claims would be laughable if they weren't so dangerously stupid. Those demonically programmed children are bad enough, but the money-crazed producers in Los Angeles are the ones who should undergo psychiatric testing — or perhaps just take their drugs away.

There are some kids who are very disrespectful and are learning very bad things outside of school.(family, neighborhood, moveis/tv, music) I teach 4th grade and I know that some students are capable of doing these things. This is a very serious issue, and to laugh about it is horrible. The day I have to worry about bringing weapons to protect myself form my students is the day I will quit.

    don't try and make it another race's fault that america is stupid.

    what makes your so sure that the children are at fault!!!!!!!!!!!! These are children, what made the children snap??? Is the teacher abusive. I ask my kid are you afraid of your teacher? She shouldnt be. As a parent are you there? Are you listening to your kids? If your kids are afraid of their teacher???? They shouldnt be!!!!!! dont slam the children slam the culprit.

    This photo is offensive. It has nothing to do with the story, WHATSOEVER.
    Perez, I don't like the site you run.
    You make things seem like they aren't, just so people will talk about it.
    But this is absurd.
    The picture is irrelevant.
    You are trying to put a different connotation to the story.
    Why would you use this picture?
    Why?

    Re: Jen Choy – please! if this was a group of white kids, NO one would be saying it's racist. no one would even notice! get over yourself, grow up, and stop being so sensitive.

    if this is about georgias kids why would you make it seem as if a group of asian children are plotting it. this is perpetuating a lie especially for people who only read the first couple of lines. If you want to do the right thing dont set up false prejudices

    Maybe they should look into why a majority of this class sought to take the teacher out. The article made it sound as if the teacher was an innocent in all this. Somehow, I doubt this teacher was squeaky clean in all this. Children that age are fueled by a strong sense of justice and are very aware that they will not be taken seriously or helped by adults when they cry foul. Obviously, the alleged "scolding" of the one student was much more than is being said and possibly bordered on abuse. Why would these children feel as if they needed to go to such extremes? And why would they feel as if there was no one to help them?

    Re: Liz – Okay? I didn't say their disabilities were at fault, if you'd seen my other posts I say that lack of discipline is to be the blame. I would never and have not tried make excuses for their actions.

    Oh and I'm really sorry about your brother-in-law.

    Re: Jen LaChoy Soy Sauce Sux

    Please dont be so rude… I think it is true what Jen says. Also, there has been research showing that psychologically people will associate this article with asian children. Its a matter of implications.

    Perez, you should do the right thing and take it down. Apologize to the asian community just as any other self respecting publication would. If you want to be taken seriously, don't alienate people in this way.

    Actually racial sensitivity should be cultivated. Just because we are all more integrated does not mean that racism, racial stereotypes, and racial/sexual/ethnic misrepresentation does not exist. It's still a huge issue. There's so many pictures online. There's no reason why this one was used. Education and open mindedness is the partial cure for ignorance. We all have a duty to be aware.
