Haven't seen any more than is listed here 'Hit list' uncovered at Bethany Elementary | kgw.com Portland The gist of it is, school officials claim they found a "hit list" created by a student, of names of other students at Bethany Elementary, and the kid has been booted until he gets a psych eval. No mention if the child has been taken into custody by the police/DHS, or if he's just been suspended pending the outcome of his visit to the shrink. When I was in elementary school, it wasn't uncommon for kids playing with each other (or being bullied) to tell another kid he was "gonna kill you." It was kids being kids - no one ever brought guns, knives, or pipe bombs to school. Then Kip Kinkle went on his shooting spree, then the school shootings in Arkansas, Alabama, then Colorado all went down in a short period. When I was a junior, one of the senior students at my school savagely beat a Christmas tree salesman and his grand father with a baseball bat, the younger man went from a bright man with a future - to nearly retarded because of the brain damage he suffered. We got hateful calls by people in teh community to the school, including business owners and managers who professed to *never* hire another student who attended our school because of this one turd. I think the world is changing - and not for the better - so I'm not sure what to make of this kid at Bethany Elementary at this point. Could just be a kid being a kid (kids do weird things, and sometimes they imitate things they see on TV and movies - like writing up hit lists, or acting out action they saw - with no malice or real mental defect - they just haven't learned what's acceptable yet) - or they just caught the next Kip Kinkle before he brings a gun to school to actually carry out his "hits".
