With my return flight to the U.S. on time it’s oddly nice to see that kids in the U.S. haven’t changed much.
)Sigh( Well, at least I’ll be able to understand the news soon. Though, I do have to wonder which is better… not understanding the news (in print or on the tv) or understanding EVERYTHING. Hrmm…
Elementary students try to hijack school bus
Friday, January 21, 2005
Three 11-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl tried to hijack their school bus near Punxsutawney this morning.
State police said the four hatched the plot yesterday. Just after 8 a.m. today, one of the boys pulled a knife from a book bag and held it near another student. He demanded driver Janet McQuown, 52, stop and get off the bus.
A police new release says she pulled over along Pine Tree Church Road in Oliver Township and “the knife was removed from the juvenile’s possession.” It doesn’t say how.
The bus, with the hijackers and about 40 other children, arrived safely at Mapleview Elementary, where the unnamed offenders were taken into custody.
Two were turned over to juvenile authorities and two went home with their parents.
The news release did not immediately say what the hijackers intended to do with the bus.
