Ohio girls charged after 'hit list' found

Published: Fri, December 14, 2012 @ 9:55 p.m.

KENTON, Ohio (AP) — Three Ohio middle-school girls are facing juvenile court charges of inducing panic after they were accused of compiling a “hit list” at school.

The Lima News reports there was no evidence the girls planned anything specific at their middle school in Kenton. Police Chief John Vermillion said it was probably a joke, but authorities have to take such matters seriously because of shootings and other incidents at schools across the country.

The “hit list” with names of at least 15 students and teachers on it, was found in a school hallway in September. One of the girls was suspended afterward.

Two of the three girls entered the equivalent of not-guilty pleas Thursday. The other failed to get an attorney in time for the court hearing.

What a stupid statement for the police chief to make. " It was probably a joke." It doesn't sound like a joke to me. These girls should be punished severely and expelled from school.

Because its being investigated and the note was found on the ground most likely discarded by the girls. The chief said that most likely it was a joke but we have to take it seriously. I guess you must have missed that part. Thats just why people like you probably voted for the idiot we have in the White House now because you don't understand the words you read very well.
