    Cops: 3rd-graders aimed to hurt teacher

    Police say a group of third-graders plotted to attack their teacher, bringing a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape and other items for the job and assigning children tasks including covering the windows and cleaning up afterward.

    The plot by as many as nine boys and girls at Center Elementary School in south Georgia was a serious threat, Waycross Police Chief Tony Tanner said Tuesday.

    The children, ages 8 and 9, were apparently mad at the teacher because she had scolded one of them for standing on a chair, Tanner said.

    They could be expelled, but a prosecutor said they are too young to be charged with a crime under Georgia law.

    Tanner said school officials alerted police Friday after a pupil tipped off a teacher that a girl had brought a weapon to school.

    Police seized a broken steak knife, handcuffs, duct tape, electrical and transparent tape, ribbons and a crystal paperweight from the students, who apparently intended to use them against the teacher, Tanner said.

    The alleged target is a veteran educator who teaches third-grade students with a range of learning disabilities, including attention deficit disorder, delayed development and hyperactivity, friends and parents said.

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

    I saw this on one of the TVs at work today but we have the sound turned off. Was trying to piece things together and couldn't quite do it......this is crazy.

    Re: Cops: 3rd-graders aimed to hurt teacher

    It's also kinda funny to think of how they planned it. Did they do it at recess under the monkey bars? Or maybe on a cute little chalkboard in one of their basements. If they kept the plans I would really wanna see um!

    This reminds me of that one thing of how many 1st graders could you take or whatever. I'm willing to bet that the teacher could not have handled 9 third graders!

    So say they attacked and he punched them all in self defense and got away. Think their parents would sue him for hitting their child?

    Re: Cops: 3rd-graders aimed to hurt teacher

    ZERO way I would not be able to overpower a dozen 3rd graders. They would be in a world of hurt.

    Of course I'm a stud...others may not be so lucky...LOL

    I think I would be fine as long as i took out the one with the knife and stayed on my feet... If they got me to the ground I might be a bit concerned... On second thought I think I could take them all out with one swift roundhouse kick!

    LOL, there is a website out there somewhere that takes into account your age/sex/weight and determines how many you can take but I can't seem to find it!
