Kids these days...
A group of nine children in Georgia have been sent to bed without dinner after a plot to attack their third-grade teacher was uncovered by local authorities. The children plotted to knock their teacher unconscious with a paper weight (likely fabricated during art class) and called for the use of a broken steak knife, handcuffs and duct tape. The children went so far as to delegate roles; including standing watch, covering windows and doors, and cleaning-up any subsequent mess.
The children plotted the attack after their teacher scolded one student for standing on a chair.
The news broke just a week after a 13-year-old girl was busted by the cops for running a prostitution ring in Dallas, Texas. The middle-school madame was allegedly bringing classmates to a local club to dance and prostitute for the male clientèle.
In related news, Nickelodeon announced its plan to relaunch a child-friendly spin off of HBO's award-winning series OZ, after critics accused the network of losing touch with its key demographic.
