So what do you do when a fifth grader pens a note describing how he wants to carry out a Newtown-style attack against his classmates? This is what happened in New Jersey recently.
Even though it's unlikely that the 11-year-old boy could have carried out such an attack, police plan to press unspecified charges against the juvenile. According to an article in Gawker, the note targeted some 40 students, and a search of the boy's home revealed further lists on his computer.
“We believe it was more of a fantasy-type thing he had,’’ said Wall Township Police Lieutenant John Brockriede. “Not something he was capable of actually carrying out.’’
