California Sixth Graders Find Bags of 'Treasure' in Oakland Lake
A group of sixth graders in Oakland, Calif., doing their weekly cleanup along the the shore of a local lake, stumbled across something that was not the usual tree limbs or old junk -- it looked like treasure.

"I was picking up some trash and I saw a bunch of people in my group gathering, so I quickly ran over there," said Simone, a sixth grader with the group.

"There were two bags almost full of pretty jewelry that had gold and silver."

The students, from St. Paul's Episcopal School in Oakland, had found two 15-pound canvas bags full of jewelry and other valuable objects including rings, pocket watches, two silver candlesticks, a silver spoon and a switchblade.

(snip...)

There is a video there too, of the kids checking it all out.

6. .....

 

I'd say he was making a joke that a bunch of kids might not know what they discovered....... but any excuse to get riled up about pedophilia is a good one.

5. The switchblade is cool but condoms aren't? A trifle oversensitive, perhaps?

 

Maybe even a bit of projection?

Most sixth graders I recall had a hell of a lot more interest in condoms than switchblades, or bling for that matter.

Fer chrissakes, the kids found a couple of bags of stolen crap. There could be anything in there - a severed head or foot.

It's SO FUCKING ROMANTIC.
