A 9-year-old girl from Detroit is currently being held by the police after she was caught on camera threatening to harm a classmate with a large kitchen knife.
The girl, whose identity has not been revealed, is seen in the footage stating her intentions and making slashing gestures, according to Fox 2 Detroit. What I’m going to do with you is as follows!”
She then starts using the knife to swipe at the air, eventually imitating slitting a throat.
According to reports, the student in the Detroit Public Schools Community District who filmed the knife incident will be punished. After the mother of the threatened child reported the incident, the girl who threatened another classmate in the video was taken into custody by the police.
The girls are in the fifth grade and go to Vernor Elementary School. The mother adds that the girls were friends for a brief time before the video was made, so she thinks the threat may have come from the 9-year-old not being invited to a party.
The girl was suspended for three days by the district, but the girl’s mother thought that was not enough. The girl has been taken into custody after the schools informed her that making threats is illegal. The mother doesn’t want her daughter to go back to school and is concerned about her daughter’s safety. The district is concerned in the same way.
According to a statement released by the schools, making threats is a crime that is punishable by law. The district reportedly concurs with the mother of the threatened student’s concerns about her daughter’s safety and her desire to never see her return to school.
The girl’s fate has not yet been determined, according to reports.
