    AK - 3 Anchorage first-graders planned to fatally poison classmate, police say

    3 Anchorage first-graders planned to fatally poison classmate, police say
    Three first-grade students at Winterberry Charter School in Anchorage planned to poison and kill another student last week, according to a letter sent to parents from the school’s principal.
    In the letter, principal Shanna Mall wrote that two students brought the plot to adults’ attention. Mall directed questions about the incident to the Anchorage School District, which includes the charter school.

    Exclamation

    Scary that they could be planning something so evil at such a young age!!! Do they understand the permanence of death??
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    Here's a good little article on children's understanding of death in various developmental stages.

    I think it would depend on their life experiences. Children growing up in war zones or through epidemics, for instance, know about violence and losing people, but I'm assuming the majority of children in America don't get it. JMO - some children have to learn.

    ^ by have to learn I mean they live in a world that gives them no choice but to learn. They're the children who have to learn. I don't mean to imply children who aren't forced to learn early need to be taught a lesson - they'll learn at some point.

    Sorry if I was unclear.

    At least they didn't understand that silica gel is not poison. I'd be more concerned if they obtained and used cyanide or pesticides somehow.
