    Poisoning the math teacher.

    Two kids were caught poisoning their math teacher.

    As punishment they were sent to alternative schools.

    I would have voted for tried in adult court

    but the article didn't give their ages!

    It said they were given longterm suspensions,

    but to me they should have been permantley expelled!

    I'm a little confused as to how someone can drink any of it and not know? Sounds like she drank a rather large quantity, actually. Was her tea that spicy?

    I'm just stumped, here.

    It specified it was at a middle school, which narrows down the age range.

    I voted "other" as in "They should be locked in a psych ward."

    Given that hand sanitizer is often odorless, it's not too surprising if it has little flavor. It also depends on how much they put in relative to the size of her drink.

    They should be tried as juveniles. I don't understand this whole obsession some people have with trying children as adults for any crime they commit. They're children, they should be tried as children, always.

    And let's be honest here. It's not like they were dumping cyanide in her tea. It was hand sanitizer. I'm pretty sure some really stupid people drink that to get drunk.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
