two Cumberland County students have been arrested for plotting to kill other students at an elementary school. Diagrams have been found that show planned school shooting.
can we just admit we have a mental health crisis, not a gun crime crisis. gun crime is at a 40 year low. it's that our society is producing the rare 6th grader who wants to shoot up the school.
Wow. Pellet guns are a chance to teach youngsters proper firearm handling from an early age, not just some toy. Dumbass parents.
With pellets? Lol
10 years ago this would not have made national news...
*tear forms in eye*
"They grow up so fast"
You'll put your eye out, kid!
We should arm all kids with guns so if anyone tried to shoot up the school the good guys could stop the bad guys. The teachers could even have a hall pass system for the guns so if there is a shooting they could make sure only the good kids have their guns. You could even have like designated team colours so when the cops come they don't shoot the good kids. But should tax dollars fund the armories or should the kids bring their own personal weapons. I don't want my kids having no socialist gun. So maybe have the kids work in the fields to pay off their guns and then they can go to school. Don't want no freeloader kids they need to pull themselves up by their bootstraps to fix this problem that they created.
when I was a kid, some used to call in bomb threats just to get out of school. I think someone got detention once
To be fair the feeling was there all the time. I mean you can't tell me that you didn't sit in class when the teacher was to lazy to teach, while the room was either too cold or too hot, in cramped desks wishing for it all to end.
I can't judge the school system is shit. Has been for a good century. We waste fuck loads of money just to teach kids to hate society. Then are surprised when they grow up with hatred for other races, hatred for authority, and zero faith in the government. I mean if you really want to train insurgents put them through elementary school again and they will try to burn down the government no instructions needed.
I hated school so much I barely passed every class on purpose. I learned more from my local library. Nothing says fuck school more than getting straight As until your average can't be lowered below a c+ then doing the bare minimum to not get kicked out. Fuck school.
Most information is repetitive and reviewing things that are not even applicable for real life. I swear if they didn't spread out the information across all the grades you could probably learn all you need to from school in 6 years. College is even worse I think it's garbage that you have to retake all the old information you already know. Take classes you don't need. Then write meaningless documents for no reason.
Education is great but school is the worst method to date to learn anything. Hell I learned math and English before I started elementary school from my grandma and she didn't have real school in her time.
wow the world is now mad .....i miss good ol days when news act like i dunno a News ?
and they are that a brats why make them a new headlines ? and news should deal with real issue not this .
Sixth graders.......rly ?
You have to Charge THEM ? For what ,some stupid joke or Imaginary prank. This country has bigger problems
A lot of parents don't teach respect, discipline or common sense to their children. Mainly because they lack it themselves. Everyone needs to improve themselves so the youth has role models to look up to.
People need to stop putting their kids on games and phones and spend some time with them having conversations. I love my mom but she did the same thing with my sister's kids after we took them in and then I had to go to work to support everybody, I wasn't able to spend as much time with them so she stuck them on a game all day just so they would leave her alone. at least when I was a kid she had to stick us outside because we couldn't afford to have a game system. Now it's all they care about, they actually get depressed when they aren't allowed to play on their systems. And naturally the only games they want to play are shoot em up type games.
I've plotted bank robberies. didn't mean i was actually going to do it. at what point has a crime occurred?
Shoot up the playground and tell the kids to stay in school!
this sounds like paranoia. Just talk to the parents and make sure these kids aren't taking pills to "adjust" their behaviour. This is definitely not news worthy unless you want the Hysteria and push the narrative
when i was a kid growing up in Australia in the sixties, we had some access to firearms and owned pellet guns. In those days the mass shooting and school shootings were unheard of.
Today its almost a common thing.
it all seemed to have start when some girl in the uk didnt like mondays.
While I’m glad this plan was discovered, I’m not sure if this should even go to trial. I’m mean all they have are the kids testimony, a hand drawn map of the school and a plan, this isn’t real hard evidence. The map could be for multiple reasons, the plan could be for a video game idea, and the testimony could have happened under duress.
If a 16 yr old rich kid from Texas can drive drunk, kill 4 people and get 10 years probation. I would hope two 6th graders who had nothing but words could get out of this. But I’m thinking the kids and parents are probably lower class and won’t be able to afford their own attorney and these kids will be in the system for the rest of their lives.
People apparently didn't read the articles. It wasn't about airsoft these kids allegedly were trying to copy cat a similar tragedy to Columbine.
