ARE YOU MORE CONNIVING THAN A FIFTH GRADER?

If you think the Febreez incident in Twillingate was sensational, have you heard about the three elementary
The 10- and 11-year-old kids are accused of putting poison in their teacher's coffee as well as in the icing of a cupcake! Apparently one of trio panicked and knocked the cup of coffee out of the teacher's hand when she was going to drink it.

The punishment. They were expelled from the school and moved to other schools. The  teachers union and some parents are not pleased. They have informed the police, who are now investigating.  The Fresno County district attorney's office will decide whether to press charges against the children.

The incidents occurred in mid-December but only came to light last week after because a parent of one of the students bragged that her boy saved a teacher's life.
 
The teacher never took a sip of the coffee or a bite of the cupcake.
 
I know it is not local but the rules seem familiar: if a teacher does something to a kid, the teacher's life is changed forever (as it should be). If a kid does something to a teacher, they are just transferred to another school.

What is the world coming to?
