10 Year Old Accused of Trying to Poison Teacher

Sometimes you just don't want homework.

Students who attend Mt. Pisgah Middle School, in Cornova, Tennessee and their parents were stunned Saturday by the news a student allegedly tried to poison his teacher Friday.

Stunned really? I've got to say, and it's sad to admit this, but I'm not surprised. Repulsed? Sickened? Confused? Yes, yes, but not surprised.

Shelby County School Board spokesperson Mike Tebbe said the 10-year-old student walked to the teacher's desk and poured a cleaning liquid into her coffee cup.

What do you do with a 10-year-old with murderous ambitions? Obviously something went wrong at some point during that 10 year span. How come these little shits are never the ones that get kidnapped?

A PTA parent who's child was in the same class at the time said the liquid was dry-erase board cleaner.

Bet the teacher will be keeping that under lock and key from now on.

Parents said the student was likely old enough to know exactly how sick the teacher could have become. "It was absolutely thought about, pre-calculated," said parent Marcus Vaughn. "He had to realize what he was doing."

He knew what he was doing though I doubt he really understood the consequences. I find that children have little ability to factor out the results of their actions and weigh the consequences. Although this is exactly why I believe it beating children from time to time.

The student was taken from the school and charged with reckless endangerment. He also faces a long suspension.

No shit.

"It puts the responsibility back on the parents," Vaughn said. "Now, they're going to have to do something to make sure this child don't keep going on a negative path."

If their kid is trying to kill people at age 10, there's not much hope for a turnaround.

Whatever happened to just jumping them after school?

I remember one guy in primary school got that pissed off. He grabbed a hostage and locked himself and her in the stock cupboard with a blackboard compass to her throat - you know, the big 18" wooden ones with the 6" steel spike the thickness of a kiddies crayon on the end.

That didn't freak me out much, especially as me and her were the only hostage options in the room for the fuck nut.

Years later he was having a driving lesson from his dad and he reversed out onto a main road straight into me on my pushbike.

Bastard, maybe he wished he'd picked me all those years previously.

He's probably on a government maintained list now . . . . . dumbass.
