Facebook group "Attack a Teacher Day" lands 6 girls in jail

So this is especially crazy for me since the school these girls are at is just half an hour north of where I grew up. Carson High (where these girls would have gone for high school) is actually the arch rivals of my high school in all competitive sports...

Facebook: Attack a Teacher Day Group Gets 6 Girls Arrested!

January 10, 2011 05:55 AM EST



Thanks to Facebook’s “Attack a Teacher Day” group, 6 girls are now in jail! Five of the girls were students at Nevada’s Carson City Middle School and the sixth girl was from Eagle Valley Middle School. The unlucky and idiotic bunch was trying to gather a bunch of fellow students in order to “Attack a Teacher Day” at both schools. The specific date the girls were hoping for was set for Friday, January 14th. The girls were arrested and booked on Wednesday, January 5th.



Apparently, one of the 6 girls even went so far as to invite 100 of her Facebook friends and classmates to join in on the event! Police were able to uncover that 18 students has accepted the girls’ invitation and were willing to join in on “Attack a Teacher Day.” Fortunately, police put an end to the rubbish before it reached the next stage. Wow, talk about breathing a sign of relief!



Thankfully, Facebook’s “Attack a Teacher Day” group was shut down and the girls were all arrested and booked. However, this is really distressing news because it truly shows insensitivity to the rules of society. The way these girls approached their plan was so brazen and lacked such empathy that one has to wonder what the heck is wrong with them. Could it have been gang mentality? Probably, there’s also a good chance these girls are idiots too.

I'm going to go with idiots.





Edit to add: They weren't joking, they had every intention of doing it IMO.

Even if the person(s) who originally created the event intended it as a joke, they invited other people who may not have realized it and may have taken it very seriously. Not to mention, it's an easy cop out to say "I was just joking." when facing criminal charges, regardless of how serious you actually were in the moment.

It was made into a public event the minute they posted it on facebook , they got what they deserved .

Would it have reached the next level ? they may not have planned it too but the danger of posting things like this on facebook is it can get out of hand and quick reguardless of intentions .

"Although the arrested girls have claimed that the event was a joke, it is being taken very seriously by police because of recent shootings. "

If it was a private joke with a few friends, it would have been no big deal. Making it an event meant that someone in that group might have been mentally instable enough to take that joke seriously

Ha ha Kate! Thanks for catching that! I got my nails done the other day and I'm getting used to typing with them still... :P
