The Children Are Our Future

posted by on March 30 at 13:39 PM

From the PI:

Two 12-year-old girls have been arrested for allegedly trying to poison their teacher on Thursday afternoon, police said. Bainbridge Police Deputy Chief Mark Duncan said the two girls did not want to attend the teacher’s class at Sakai Intermediate School….

Duncan said the girls knew the teacher was highly allergic to strawberries, so they put strawberry lip gloss in the teacher’s coffee and water bottle. The 58-year-old teacher drank from the cup and immediately had an allergic reaction that required medication to counteract.

“These students actually [discussed] whether they should use real strawberries or synthetic, and decided that if they used real strawberries that that might kill the teacher,” Duncan said. “They just wanted to make here sick.”

I believe that children are the future... UNLESS WE FIND A WAY TO STOP THEM BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

That's kind of weird that a synthetic lip gloss would trigger a food allergy. I wonder what the common substance is?

Jesus, what ever happened to good ol' fashioned truancy?
