Chapel Hill police investigate student's knife claim

Posted February 11, 2009

— Chapel Hill police are investigating an attempt by a Grey Culbreth Middle School student to take a weapon to school.

Police spokesman Lt. Kevin Gunter said Wednesday that the student told officials he took a knife to a school bus stop in Carrboro on Tuesday and left it hidden under some straw.

Carrboro police officers found the knife in the location the student described, Gunter said.

The student's name and age were not released, and Gunter said the investigation is ongoing.

    I am by no means advocating weapons at school, but I'm having trouble following the point of this article. The Chapel Hill police are investigating a knife hidden in the straw in Carrboro? Huh? What "intent" is inferred by this?

    The Peoples Republic probably has some ordinace against it.
    There are some strange ordinances over there. AFAIK, it isn't a NCGS violation.

    The student didn't try to take the knife to school he hide it at a bus stop. Where is the crime?

    Well, I'm guessing for some reason this child wanted to focus attn on himself/herself. Otherwise, why would they tell what they had done before they tried to actually get the knife to school? Anyway, I'm certainly glad no one was hurt.
