That's a chilling story, but sometimes kids can be really frightening. Several years ago, I covered a nasty murder trial on the Prairies, where kids stabbed another child to death (through his eye!) and then tried to render his flesh into something they could drink. The ringleader was 8 years old.

Soon after covering that story, I became a business reporter. Different sort of crime.....

I read about this story also, Jerry. Very interesting read. "Teaching can hurt you", says one teacher who sent this article to me last night.

I always know that teaching can be a health hazard! I wonder why we do not get combat pay!

Seriously, these children seem so young to have thoughts like those. According to the article, the children are "too young to be charged with a crime under the Georgia law". Scary.

Sandra - 'tis good thing I hadn't read that story prior to bed time or else I wouldn't have slept! I don't blame you for covering the business pages after that!

Eden - it would be so challening to carry on after something like that. There is no doubt that teaching has become more complex!

I am so glad you mentioned the parents. My first thought too was where were the parents in all of this. I don't care how old they are, something needs to be done to teach them a serious lesson. Unbelievable!

And I can't believe the line: "We did not hear anybody say they intended to kill her, but could they have accidentally killed her? Absolutely," Tanner said.

Preschool is looking safer and safer these days, although I once read about a preschooler coming to school with a gun in his lunchbag (true story).

Givenb what is happening with children these days I am not sure that any age is truly 'safe'. One really wonders where it will head . . .
