Teacher gunned down in school hoax

A few days ago we had the school who due to H&E left a 5 year old up a tree and observed him through a window, then called the police when a passer by rescued him.

Now this click here

have we/they gone mad

It seems a ridiculous run up to a lesson! Training in the army, maybe but not for school aged pupils at all. Who agreed to it happening I wonder?

or grandchildren had been subjected to this kind of ordeal then I would no hesitation in telling the people responsible just how incompetant they were to have children in their care.

Being a child abuser is not limited to sexual acts. Neither is it limited to physical abuse.

At the very least, careers need to be lost over this incident. Maybe even some jail time. Instead, no doubt 'lessons will be learned' (no pun intended).

I'd be reporting the matter to the Police, Thought possession of an imitation firearm like this had been made illegal.

It will probably motivate them to carry a weapon when they are older.

"While some pupils no doubt found the hoax hilarious"

I hope those that did actually knew it was a hoax..

Who's silly idea this was should be sacked. Who will now offer help for these children for trauma and nightmares, it will affect their school work

It was a stupid thing to do but lets not go OTT, so some of the poor we darlings got a bit of a fright I am sure they will get over it. There is far to much of this mollycoddling, wrap them in cotton wool mentality.

and if armed police had been called and shot this pratt would you be saying lets not go OTT

I've got to agree with Kev' on this. there's no telling where this stupid stunt could have ended.

Jeremy Vine is, I think, about to discuss this on Radio 2.
