NAACP getting involved...

Here is the story if you don't know what happened: http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-onlin...63715960.shtml

3rd-Grader Speaks Out About Plot To Hurt Teacher
NAACP Asked School District For Independent Investigation


WAYCROSS, Ga. -- One of the nine children suspended from a Waycross elementary school after a plot to harm a teacher was unveiled spoke out Tuesday afternoon about how and why the plot came about.

Laniyah Garner, a shy, soft-spoken 9-year-old Center Elementary School third-grader, told Channel 4 that she felt threatened to participate in the plot but said she never planned to harm her teacher.

When asked what the kids were planning to do to their teacher, Laniyah said, "I think they said to hurt or kill her."

"I was shocked that she would even be involved with anything like that, and that anything like this would even happen. I was really speechless," said Laniyah's mother, Stephanie Lockie-Garner.

She said her daughter told her that she had been assigned a specific job in the plot -- to tie up the teacher's feet.

Laniyah said the plot was created because one girl had been sent to time out and another girl was also punished.

"Ms. Carter had took something from her that she wasn't supposed to be playing with," Laniyah said.

After the students' plot was uncovered after another child reported see a fellow classmate with a weapon, nine students were suspended from school and three of the nine were charged with crimes because they're accused of bringing a steak knife, handcuffs and other items to school to carry out the scheme.

Now, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has called for the teacher to be investigated and criticized the Ware County School District for how it handled the situation.
"I think what we need is to look beyond the kids, and maybe we should find what really happened," said Larry Lockey, of the Ware County chapter of the NAACP.

The NAACP asked for the school district and the Justice Department to have an independent investigation to determine what provoked the students to form a plot to hurt their teacher.

"This is an issue about right and wrong, and we want to know what happened in that classroom where you have students who were A and B students -- overachievers in many ways -- that would cause those students to end up in a predicament like this," said Georgia NAACP President Edward Dubose.

At a Tuesday afternoon news conference that was attended by many community members and some of the nine suspended children's parents, the group's leader said there is more to the story than originally thought. Dubose said the students involved in the plot had at some point come forward to counselors at the elementary school about concerns with their teacher.

"What happened in that classroom that caused those students to reach a point after they had complained, we're told, to people over and over again and they were not listened to?" Dubose said.

The NAACP also called for the school board to hold an emergency meeting to look at the punishment handed out to the students allegedly involved in the plot.

Lol, I was trying to find more articles. You're like a woman, impatient! I haven't come to my conclusion of "who's side I am on", but I think it's a bunch of bullshit that an outsider is coming and making it a bigger issue than it needs to be.

So whether the teach was unfair or not, is the NAACP implying that the plot by these 9 kids (especially the leader) to murder their teach, is excusable or understandable? If that's the case... Way to go, NAACP Make them feel justified, why don'tcha

All I can say is I would be worried more about were I went wrong as a parent. Why didnt my child come to me if there was a problem? OR did they and I didnt listen? Or is my child the problem? Regardless of the answer, I failed somewhere.

The Jena 6, and there is a lot more to the story that them beating the out of one kid. I think all the white kids and the black kids involved should all be punished for their actions that took place in ALL that was involved.

Lol! Compairing race, with gender, with religion. Nice.

BUt don't get you started that a HIGH school had a tree where only white people could sit and a black stupend had to ask for permission? Yep sounds like disaster waiting to happen if you ask me.

Some parts. Why not add the KKK and Black Panthers. That seems more comparable.

I still think it's all bullshit and only adds room for more segregation.

<shrug> I to have to agree, people need to ask 'WTF", if a bunch of elementray school kids talk about organising to take out a teacher... particularly kids with high grades.

...I think there may be a problem in quite a few school disitricts with teachers
and/or administrators that are not attempting to do their jobs properly.

Anyone see the news about the girl that was abuducted the other day?
The school waited 24 hours to send notice, when queried they stated it was the medias (news) job to notify people, not theirs.

It was definetely the teachers fault. How dare her those kids off enough to MAKE them want to harm or kill her. I mean, who in their right mind would make them that angry. The teacher should be fired. She is a racist.

Now thats messed up.



What would cause 9 year old's to want to truly kill someone, I mean thats a pretty deep emotion. Rape? sexual contact? abuse? At least in my knowledge, kids generally don't rebel against their abuser, but they hold it in, looking for faults within. That's what gets me. In my opinion there's probably something mentally wrong with one or two of the kids, and they were smart enough to recruit others to their way of thinking.
