Pa. kindergarner bring heroin packets to school



Published: Thu, May 19, 2011 @ 12:58 p.m.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police and school officials in western Pennsylvania say a kindergarten student brought stamped bags of heroin to a Pittsburgh school and may have given some to other students.

Investigators said the 7-year-old brought the drugs to Roosevelt Primary School in the Carrick neighborhood on Wednesday. Officials say teachers found 18 white packets with a stamp of a bunny coming out of a hat, which kids are calling “the magic ticket.”

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard said the boy didn’t know what the substance was. Officials say the boy told police he gave the small bags to three friends.

Richard says one parent has returned a stamp bag to the school, and any parent who finds one should call 911.

She says police are investigating how the boy got the drugs.

Welcome to the future and show and tell day at the school . Starting them young on heroin is a good thing for the subculture .

Kids are so advanced today. I didn,'t know about drugs in first grade.

18 packets of drugs. Paid $2.00 for each packet. How many packets must he sell in order to still have 5 packets of drugs for himself and still make a profit?

No wonder some are so good at Math.

A 7 year-old kindergartener? How did he get it? His piece of fu(]<ING $hit parents or guardians who allow a child to be two years behind in educational development while they teach him how to peddle drugs! Outrageous.

Just starting the kid out in the family business. Learn it from the ground floor up, but they should have started him by teaching him the "product line". Later on, he could go into sales. Then as he got older, into the manufacturing part of it and warehousing it.

Gotta start 'em young during these times.

MattMarzula :

"A 7 year-old kindergartener?"

The longer that this kid stays in school as keeps his IQ low the greater his assurance of staying on the public dole for life . He will also enhance his parents cash flow . Now the parents are breaking him in to performing public service by providing medication to the subculture . The next logical step for this young fellow would be to show his friends the new handgun that his parents bought or stole for him . Later an AK 47 for drive bys will be in his future .
