    PA - Teacher & son suspended after son took handgun to school TWICE!

    SHICKSHINNY, Pa. (AP) — An elementary school teacher whose 11-year-old son twice brought a loaded handgun to school faces felony child endangerment charges. Linnea C. Holdren, 43, and her son were both suspended from Hunlock Creek Elementary School, and the boy faces an expulsion hearing later this month, officials said. According to a police affidavit, Holdren told officers who offered to give her a gun lock: "I can't lock up his guns. They belong to him, and he has a right to use them whenever he wants to use them."

    The boy showed the loaded gun to other students during recess on Nov. 29, authorities said. Police were called after another student reported the gun. The boy also brought the gun to school on Nov. 23 and showed another boy how to load it in a bathroom, police said........

    What's REALLY scary is that she is a TEACHER!!!!

    THUD!

    I can't understand why her son wasn't permanently expelled the first time? I thought NJ & PA both had that stupid ZERO TOLERANCE policy?

    This just makes no sense. I have an 11 year old son and there is no way he would have guns, much less unlocked. She should not be teaching or parenting!

    I completely agree.
    And not putting teachers down, most put their heart into their job, but like every proffession you get the occassional whack job. She should be put in jail. IMO

    I wouldn't want her teaching mine. Maybe she's a candidate for the Darwin Award.

    If this were a teacher in my child's district she would not be teaching ever again.

    I think hunting is very big in that area, and school is even closed the first day of hunting season....many children hunt ...but in SCHOOL? With his mother's blessing?

    Sounds like the kid is the parent in that household.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Hunting may be big - but doesn't change the fact that the mom needs to be a parent: "those are his guns" - doesn't mean you can't lock them up or take them away if he's not using them right.

    Oh I agree and this lady takes the cake! Not only with that comment but she had her child to LIE and say he was target shooting before school and didn't realize he had brought it to school with him.

    CPS needs to be involved! The sooner the better!
