Exacto Knife Recovered From 9-Year-Old Student Who Made A Threat

WALDORF, Md. – On February 28, students at Diggs Elementary School notified school staff that another student, age 9, was in possession of a knife and had made a threat to harm a classmate. The knife was recovered by school administrators.

The school resource officer (SRO) initiated an investigation. The student cannot be charged in this case due to his age; however, the SRO has notified the Charles County Department of Juvenile Services as a matter of recordation and to offer services as needed.

The Charles County Public Schools are handling the case administratively.

  1. You have to wonder why kids do this SO OFTEN today. I’m guessing that they’ve been bullied at school? I was bullied a lot throughout my school years, but I never ever considered bringing a weapon to school. Today, in our parentless world, kids don’t have anyone to guide them into the right way to handle things.

    1. When I was growing up, kids had knives all the time and irresponsible parents are nothing new. The biggest difference today is the internet, social media and the “reporting” of incidents like this. You are a big part of the problem Archie. You come on here to piss and moan constantly. Yet when there is a positive story or a negative story about a “non-minority” you are predictable silent.
