What in the heck is going on in the school system that is making it such a pressure cooker? The students are hurting each other, the teachers are hurting the students, the entire relationship and atmosphere is deteriorating. How can they get an education?
Now a murder plot, configured by fifth graders, has been uncovered in Colville, Washington at Fort Colville Elementary. Two fifth graders have been arrested for planning to kill a girl and six other students. What could have been a catastrophic event similar to the massacre at Newtown Elementary was thwarted because a teacher followed up on a fourth-graders claim that they had seen an 11-year-old boy with a knife on Thursday, February 7, according to an affidavit reported by the Los Angles Times.
In the report it stated:
“The teacher searched that boy’s backpack and that of his 10-year-old friend and found the weapons in the friend’s backpack. They included a knife with a 3¼-inch blade, a .45-caliber Remington 1911 semiautomatic handgun and an ammunition clip.”
Why would a child be in possession of this kind of artillery? If we don’t have a better reason why we should crack down on gun laws, this would be it!
Prosecuting Attorney Timothy Rasmussen, said Washington state law states that “students younger than 8 were considered incapable of committing criminal acts ” and similarly for those between 8 and 12. So, they will hold a hearing February 20, to determine whether they had the capacity to commit this crime.
I don’t know about you, but I’m shaking in my boots! Tell us, do you think it’s the video games, the violent movies, the irresponsible media, the music, what?! We seem to be manufacturing mentally unstable children, thus adults at an alarming rate!
