OCALA, Fla. -- A 10-year old Ocala girl brought her lunch to school and a small kitchen knife to cut it. She now faces a felony charge after being arrested. The school and the sheriff's office disagree on the reason for the arrest.
Doubt my dumb and dumber title? Check the following out.
She did not use it inappropriately. She did not threaten anyone with it. She didn't pull it out and brandish it. Nothing of that nature," explained Marion County School Spokesman Kevin Christian.
But a couple of teachers took the utensil and called the sheriff. When deputies arrived, they were unable to get the child's parents on the phone, so they arrested her and took her to the county's juvenile assessment center.
Couldn't get the parents? Probably because they were working to make enough money to pay their taxes to support, most likely, a bloated school administation.
I gotta wonder if these folks ever heard of making a child sit in the Principal's office? No. Gotta take her downtown.
