Don't mess with these third graders. Nine boys and girls at Carter Elementary School in Georgia planned to attack their teacher. After a teacher was tipped off by a student that one of the girls bought a weapon to school, the authorities were then notified.
The kids, each one with a different learning disability, planned to knock the teacher out with a glass paperweight, handcuff her, duct tape her mouth and then stab her with a steak knife, and a broken one at that.
The teacher had scolded one of the students because they were standing on a chair. Police chief Tony Tanner (great name) had this to say, "We're not sure...how many of the students actually knew the intent was to hurt the teacher...because they are kids, they may have thought this was like a cartoon..." A cartoon with some very realistic consequences. Luckily, those were averted.
