The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Warnings signs ignored...

I'm going to do something a little odd here... I'm going to jump out on a limb and suggest that if a student suddenly comes out of the blue and starts asking a teacher what the penalty for MURDER is... the teacher might want to consider hiding any dangerous objects and maybe, just maybe- trying to find some help for the deranged student.

Sadly, it seems that a California shop teacher may have failed to do either, because after inquiring about the penalties were for murder, he later decided to walk into a woodshop class and injured another student who he was having problems with.

A Fontana High School student grabbed a hammer in woodshop and clubbed another teen, sending him to the hospital in serious condition with a head wound.

The attack apparently involved a dispute over a girl.

Police Sergeant Jeff Decker says a 17-year-old boy sneaked into the shop class Tuesday and hit the victim, also 17, once with a hammer.

Lets all hope that someone learns to pay attention to suspicious questions next time around.a
