    World gets scarier all the time!

    http://www.news4jax.com/news/15755299/detail.html

    This is a story about third graders (8-9 years old!!) plotting to do harm to their teacher in retaliation. Even brought a knife, duct tape, hand cuffs etc. to school!
    What are our kids learning!!???
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Reminds me of a song.
    To the tune of "Old Smokey"

    On top of Ol' Smokey, all covered with blood.
    I killed my poor teacher, with a 44 slug.
    I went to her funeral, I went to her grave.
    Some people threw flowers, I threw grenades!



    When I was a kid, everyone had a pocket knife or Buck knife, nobody thought anything about it, but we didn't pull them out when we got into fights.
    When I was in high school, we had a skeet shooting club that met 1 day a week after school.
    The makeshift range was on the other side of the school from the student parking, so most of us would go get our shotguns out of our cars at lunch and put them in our lockers, then took them with us to our last class of the day if it was on the same side of campus as the range. We were required to keep them in a case until we got to the range though.
    To be in the club, and thus allowed to bring a shotgun on campus, an individual did have to be approved by the administration, and have a fairly clean disciplinary record.

    Can you imagine the reaction today...
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    They Just watch the news or get the information from games like Grand theft auto or a boat load of other video games.




    I would be kind of interested to see what the parental reaction is

    It seems that the usual reaction of parents with kids like these is "Don't you touch my kid!" and "Well, he musta deserved it" type of stuff.
    Late last school year we had a lock down at the local middle school. Seems one girl was p.o.'d at another and walked into her classroom and cussed at her calling her out for a fight. When the girl refused, and the teacher attempted to send the perpetrator to the Principal's office, she went up and down the hallways yelling how she was gonna kick the other girl's a**. They finally get her corralled into the Principal's office and call her parents who then threatened the Principal with the "you better not touch my daughter or you'll be sorry" type of reply. School goes into lockdown, police are called to the scene, parents are escorted in by police to get their kid. I guess the administrators were worried about the parents as much as the kid.

    I know back in MY day, something like that happens and someone is going to have a very sore sitting area, be grounded and a whole host of stuff. But then again, I don't see that things like this happened very often back in MY day.

    In my day, there would have been a major ass whooping.............mine, it wouldn't matter who started what, I would have my butt handed to me with a size 11 still in it , then my dad would have done the same thing to the other kid He had no qualms about straighting out *problem* kids.

    And we turned out okay, right!?

    My folks probably would've been about the same but there weren't really too many times to test it.

    This is horrible. Are parents so busy these days that they can't teach their kids right from wrong, pretend from real?
