Monster Children? Fourth Graders at NY School Plotted to Kill Teacher With Hand Sanitizer
From the Reuters News Service, original article can be found online at this link.
Three fourth graders in a New York elementary school plotted to kill their teacher with hand sanitizer in December, The New York Daily News reported.
The 9-year-old students, who attend Elba Elementary School in upstate New York, allegedly told fellow students they were going to kill their teacher “by putting antibacterial products around the classroom,” according to the police report.
Chief Deputy Jerome Brewster of the Genesee County Sheriff’s Department told the Daily News that police had found little motive for the scheme beyond the fact that the children said the teacher “is mean.”
However, Brewster also said that authorities considered the plot to be “idle chatter” and did not charge the student with crimes, instead referring the matter to the school district who are treating the threats “very seriously.”
Editors Comments: Every child has the potential to become a kind, generous, and noble person, who will be a blessing to this world. But children raised without discipline and Biblical morality have grown up to become psychopathic killers. This story could be amusing if there were not so many real stories about children who actually murder and commit heinous crimes. The fact that these three children could conspire together to kill their teacher by exploiting her allergies indicates their moral compasses were not pointing anywhere. Children like these are wild weeds, untrained, and needing moral instruction on love and righteousness. Perhaps one of these 3 students was a ringleader and influenced the others to join in this plot, but how would you like to get a call from your school to find out that your sweet child was involved in a murder plot against his teacher? Scripture says: “Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof leads others astray.” Proverbs 10:17 and “Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.” Proverbs 22:15.
Biblical teaching, training, and heart-felt prayer can help prevent your child from becoming one of the “monster children” who become the subject of one of the many articles like this one.
