This story seems like something out of a TV show! A Grand Rapids Public School cafeteria worker hired 4th graders to beat up another student.


The worker admitted that they hired two 4th graders to beat up on another student. She is now no longer employed by the school district.

Turns out, the student that was the target of the attack made a comment to the cafeteria worker that he probably shouldn't have. So, to get back at him, I guess, the worker paid two boys $1 each to beat up the other student.

There's no word as to how the school got wind of things, but they did and questioned the worker who admitted to everything.

There is no official report stating that the target was harmed, but his mother told WOOD-TV 8 that he was and that the family will be taking legal action.
