(not these girls though, they just have the unfortunate propensity to come up during a Google image search for ”middle school girls”)
You know, misbehaving when I was in middle school involved getting in fights over four-square games or cheating on your math test. Kids these days are really taking things to a whole new level. And it’s thanks to the internet!
Six middle school girls were arrested Wednesday afternoon after the group allegedly participated in a Facebook event called “Attack a Teacher Day.”
Carson City Sheriff’s Deputy Jessica Rivera, the district’s school resource officer, said five of the girls are students at Carson Middle School and one at Eagle Valley. The page came to light Wednesday morning after the invitation went out to 79 students. A parent saw the content, said Rivera.
The six girls arrested allegedly posted threats on the page aimed at specific teachers using wording like, “I’m attacking (teacher’s name),” and “Down with (teacher’s name).” According to the Facebook posting, the “attack,” which was never defined, was to take place Friday between the hours of 7-9 a.m. at Carson Middle School and Eagle Valley Middle School.
What? Why would you do this? Do you think that adults don’t have access to the internet or something? I’m very confused, and I hope you get life in jail. Err, at least a day or two.
