In WAYCROSS, Ga., eleven third-grade students got together and plotted to kill their teacher, even going so far as to bring handcuffs and a knife to school. Each child had a job to do, including one assigned to wipe up the blood.
The plot unraveled over the weekend when a student tipped off police, Waycross Local 6 reported.
School officials said they never imagined that some of the 8- and 9-year-olds boys and girls at the school would think of bringing physical harm to a teacher, WJXT reported.
In addition to the knife being found, the school officials said other students had duct tape, handcuffs, ribbon and a heavy crystal paperweight.
In a typical ninnyhammer reaction: "I can't believe that -- because he's a third-grader. You know, I cannot believe that. Especially, for here," said parent Doris Rowland.
Heads in the sand – again.
