First Grader Plot To Poison Classmate.

Some first-graders planned to poison another child, but thanks to other students who spoke up, everyone is safe.

The disturbing incident took place at Winterberry Charter School in Anchorage, Alaska, last week.

Two students reported the plot, stopping it before it got off the ground, according to a letter to parents from that school's principal.

"They shared that three students in the class were planning on using the silica gel packets (these are not actually poison, but the students believed they were) from their lunchtime seaweed to poison and kill another student," wrote Shanna Mall.

She said she called the school resource officer, who spoke to each of the students and their parents or guardians.

No one was harmed, and no criminal charges were made. But the three students involved received "significant consequences," Mall wrote. 
The fact that these children were not hand cuffed and do not face criminal charges is quite telling. If they were black children this would be a much different story.
Mall went on to say, "It is important for parents to talk with their children about speaking up when they learn of something that could potentially harm others. We are thankful for the student that said something to a trusted authority when they learned of the potentially harmful situation to another student," Anchorage police said in a statement.
So, when people complain about those of us to aspouse that black lives matter, and they counter by saying all lives matter, stories like this remind us that there has never been a question in America as to whether white lives matter. The double standard is loud and clear.
