'Attack a Teacher Day' Facebook Event Leads to Six Adolescent Girls' Arrests
"Even if the six girls meant it as a joke, there's no way to know if the other students who accepted the invitation weren't going to carry out the attacks in some fashion," said Carson City Sheriff's Deputy Jessica Rivera to the Associated Press. Quickly released to their parents after the arrests, the girls are all facing suspensions from school, between three and five days long. Surprisingly enough, the girls had never seen such trouble before. Some, in fact, were near the top of their classes, and others had held what the AP is calling "leadership positions."
