(NEWSER) – A trio of upstate New York fourth-graders allegedly wanted to kill their "mean" teacher, who they knew was allergic to hand sanitizer, the New York Daily News reports. She didn't allow its use in class, Fox News notes; that, apparently, helped lead to a plan.
According to police, the kids told other students "they were going to kill (the teacher) by putting antibacterial products around the classroom," WGRZ reports. A board member heard about the alleged plot from her son, and she called police. That prompted officials to interview the Elba Elementary kids, one of whom said the teacher "yells at us and that the class has problems with her."
