Kindergartener Brings Crack Pipe and Meth to School for Show-And-Tell: Surprised?

Looks like it's all downhill from here, folks.

A kindergartener from Sweet Springs, Missouri brought crystal meth and a crack pipe to class and was going to present it during show-and-tell...until his teacher realized what he had.

"He was very excited when he got to school," Donna Wright, the superintendent of the school, said. "But I don't think he knew what he had."

We wonder how that show-and-tell presentation was going to go.

A teacher recognized the drugs and pipe and immediately notified police, before the stuff even made it into the classroom.

"That was a first for show-and-tell in this town," Police Chief Richard Downing said.

The boy's mom, Michelle Cheatham, has been arrested on drug charges, though she was recently released on bail.

"It was shocking," Wright said. "We're not experienced with dealing with this."

Are you surprised at this unique show-and-tell item -- or is stuff like this bound to happen?

    There are people who should not be allowed to have a dog let a lone a little child.
    My daughters work in the public school system believe me there are a lot of screwed up kids.

    I'm not really surprised.
    There were kids who brought guns, shanks and various drug paraphernalia to my old school. Some knew what they were doing, the younger ones were clueless.
    I stopped being surprised once I had to return to my kindergarten class for the buddy reading system my school was trying out. Those little kids swore more then I ever have in my life. And the topics they were discussing were horrendous.

    I can see two different scenarios possible. Scary thing is that neither would surprize me in the least. First, the kid decides to take the the things mommy treasures above all else to school to show his friends. They're really special, so he has to show them off. The other is that mom gave them to him as a joke to see what would happen.

    NOTHING surprises me these days. Had this happened in the 60's or 70's...that would have been a surprise.

    Oh, now, I see he has a druggie mom, I guess it's not surprising. But I still don't think things like this are "bound to happen", this is hardly a common occurence.

    This has happened thousands of times in schools all across America. Would you believe, I once brought bullets to school for show and tell.

    What surprises me is how clueless people are about what's going on all around them, and how freaked out they get when reality walks in and says "heeeey, sup dudes and dudets!".

    kindergarteners bringing meth to school has happened thousands of times? do you have some stats to show that?
  • TheNigh... Joanna ... 2011/09/22 02:13:19
    Not specifically kindergarten and not specifically meth. But kids of all ages have been bringing drugs to school since at least he 60's and probably well before. So I am being ridiculously conservative when I say thousands. It's probably more like tens of millions.

    you must live in libtard California with all those problems!

    The environment in which this child lives is obvious... apparently he felt what his crack pot mother does in front of him was "cool enough" to tell the kids all about it ...
    Take his mother to jail in cuffs.. and take this dear child out for an ice cream cone .. then to a family member, if there is one who doesn't do drugs, and wants to raise him..
    I just don't get it... why do people do this to themselves?
    child ice cream cone family member drugs raise people crackhead

    Their organs are usually as rotted out as their brains. Crack ravages a person's body including their internal organs.

    Unfortunately with a mom like his, something would probably happen anyway, whether it was at show and tell or when he was older. It's sad that this isnt surprising, I hope he doesn't end up as a screwed up kid when he's older.
