Failing the children

Where are the parents these days?
Some first-graders are receiving counseling after a fellow classmate threatened to kill them and blow up the school.

The incident occurred Friday, after a 7-year-old student at Caroll Bell Elementary School, in the Harlandale Independent School District, threatened other children, Harlandale ISD spokeswoman Leslie Garza said.

"(He told) them he was going to tie one of them up, kill that student, kill that students' families and he was going to blow up the school," she said.

Garza said school officials found several weapons in the boys backpack, including knives and cigarette lighters.

He and another 7-year-old boy, who said he was coerced by the first boy into holding a knife, were suspended for three days.

God, I hope that kid turns out OK. I don't have much hope, though.

Ah yes. Suspended for three days.

So will they be delivering the free breakfast and lunch to the home?
