Nine-year-olds plotted to tie up, hurt teacher

"The plan was to handcuff the teacher, put tape over her mouth and hit her over the head with the paperweight and possibly cut her," said Lt. Duane Caswell of Waycross police, adding that some students said the knife was simply there to cut the tape.

"It was a rather elaborate scheme for children of that age," he said.

The students spent a week planning the attack and planned to carry it out on the day they were caught, Caswell said.

As a teacher this sort of thing scares me, however, not because i fear for my safety.

This scares me because it is an insight into our deplorable society. What external factors are involved that cause 9 year olds to come up with a plan like this and then think it through and prepare to implement it.

Gone are the days of innocence for children.

It is scary when nine year olds start plotting crimes of this nature.. I'd guess they were planning on doing more than just cutting her seeing the need for handcuffs, and tape to gag her.
