It’s not something you hear on your everyday headlines: two Bartow Middle School girls plan to stab their classmates and drink their blood in devotion to the Devil.
You have to read the sentence again to believe it, but it actually happened in this town south of Lakeland.
The good news is no one was hurt. That credit goes to the teachers at the middle school. The police report said a teacher noticed one of the girls was missing from class and reported it to the office.
The office called the mom, who said her daughter should be at school. Then the principal called the cops and the assistant principals searched the school until they found the girls in a bathroom before anyone was harmed.
A round of applause for the teachers and faculty for getting to the bottom of that before something terrible happened.
The girls had knives and a pizza cutter and their plan was to kill as many as 25 students.
