65. Obviously you didn't see
that the "5-year old" (I am convinced she is at very least 34) was wearing an Angela Davis t-shirt. You have offered no convincing proof, merh, that this woman-child had not commited numerous murders in the past, as well as in the future. In the educational guidebook "Teachers Are From Honor Role, Parents Are From Detention," it clearly states that in cases involving children under 6, teachers should use stun-guns.

Try to be more objective, and accept the wisdom and insight expressed by those who note, among other gems, that: {1} the mother should be turned in to social services for NOT ALLOWING her child to be spanked; {2} this 6-year old has Charles Manson-like eyes; {3} she is surely a sociopath -- what other explanation could there be?;{4} her mother could get free mental health services .... even though she was not able to get to the school before the cops, it can't be because her workplace is not willing to let her come and go at will (ALL workplaces are progressive, as you know) .... her type likely gets welfare, even if she has to cheat (handcuff her on suspicion!); and {5} this 5-year old needs to be in an anger management group.
