    Georgia Teen Accused of Trying to Hire Undercover Cop to Kill 2 Classmates

    A Georgia teenager allegedly attempted to hire an undercover officer as a hit man to kill two classmates, according to the Pickens County Sheriff's Office.

    The Pickens High School student, identified by authorities as 17-year-old Morgan Miles Morris, was arrested Wednesday evening and charged as an adult with criminal solicitation to commit murder, the Pickens County Sheriff's Office said in a news release posted to Facebook.

    After receiving a tip that Morris was allegedly attempting to hire a hit man, the sheriff's office said it "arranged for undercover law enforcement officers to meet with Morris."

    The boy allegedly offered an undercover officer $12,000 to kill two students at his high school, according to Capt. Kris Stancil.

    Source of payment? Motive?

    Wondering about -
    - whether this 17 y/o actually had $12,000 for payment. Affluenza? Newspaper route? Wishful thinking? Visa card?
    - why teen wanted two classmates dead. Competitors for girlfriend, position on sports team, or ?

    ATF's undercover team, ATF employees who have posed as hit men. http://abcnews.go.com/US/hired-kill-...ry?id=22883468. Mar 13, 2014
    It's good to see at least some would-be-hirers get linked up w law enforcement, instead of ppl willing to kill for the right price.
    Note: not particularly enlightening as to this case.
