Why Jimmy retired

(Click the title for the whole AP story.)
WAYCROSS, Ga. - A group of children ages 8 to 10 apparently were mad at their teacher because she had scolded one of them for standing on a chair, authorities say.

That led the third-graders, as many as nine boys and girls, to plot an attack on the teacher at Center Elementary School in south Georgia.

Police Chief Tony Tanner said the students apparently planned to knock the teacher unconscious with a glass paperweight, bind her with handcuffs and duct tape and then stab her with a broken steak knife.

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


  1. I place the blame squarely on...

    The internet, rap music, video games, south park, cell phones, comic books, heavy metal, the media... the parents should be absolved of all responsibilities.

    This is kinda scary... maybe they watched an old episode of MacGyver or something.

    This is a call to vigilance in the war against children.

  4. reminds me of the question, how many 5th graders could you take on?
