First-grader hands out crack cocaine, thinking it was candy

This is just all kinds of jacked up…

School authorities say they don’t expect to discipline a first-grader who found 40 small bags of crack cocaine in his school book bag and allegedly handed the drug out to his classmates, thinking it was candy.

Even better yet, they refer to the child in the next paragraph as “darling”. They must have a pretty lax sense of humor. I can laugh at the occasional fart joke, and don’t look down on the lowbrow, but even I couldn’t go as far as to dismiss this whole event as “darling”.

    I read about that too, and as nice as it is to refer to a child as ‘darling’, I’d say that’s not the context best used.

    How sad for the child that they are in such an environment.

    At least the kid brought enough to share.

    And aren’t video games supposed to be teaching our kids the difference between high quality rock cocaine and candy?
