    NY boy, 11, faces charges over pencil attack

    SAUQUOIT, N.Y. – An 11-year-old boy faces assault and weapon charges for trying to stab a classmate with a pencil over a math problem. Police in New Hartford, 80 miles west of Albany, said the boy was mad because a classmate kept trying to help him in math class on Monday. When the would-be helper wouldn't back off, police said the boy lashed out with a sharp pencil and inflicted a scratch treated by the school nurse.

    Officer Shane Yoxall, working as a resource officer at the Sauquoit Valley Middle School, investigated. The 11-year-old, whose name wasn't released, was suspended from school and charged with felony attempted assault and misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon.

    He must report to Oneida County probation officials on Feb. 23.

    We should start having some sort of pencil training and have kids obtain a CPP (Concealed Pencil Permit)then I will start D.A.P. (Dad's Against Pencils) The pencils are killing our children:crying:

    That does it. Next time I'm pulled over by the cops and they ask if I have any weapons on me, I'm going to say "No, officer, I do not have any pencils on me." :rofl:

    Anything you use, that is not attached to your body in an assault is considered a weapon.

    In the 70's (2nd Grade) I stabbed a bully with a pencil and broke the lead off in his hand. Did not get in any trouble. Never had a problem all the way through graduation. Don't F with Bado!

    No pencil stories but I'm glad the school bus did not have a camera (2nd or 3rd grade). I can see the headline now "Assault with a lunch box, story at 11"

    Was this boy trained in the Israeli Mossad? If so, the school is lucky there are any witnesses.:whistling:

    I wonder if he had a mechanical pencil, he would have been charged for having an unlicensed full-auto. Oh the terror!:cool:
