New York, Jan 10 (THAINDIAN NEWS) With so many specials days being created on Facebook in particular, six schoolgirls decided to also pioneer a special day.

The only problem is that authorities found their day “illegal” and subsequently arrested all of them.

The girls who are all aged between the ages of twelve and thirteen were said to have created a Facebook campaign called “Attack a Teacher Day”. All the girls attended schools in Carson City, Nevada.

What makes their actions dangerous is that the girls contacted their former classmates and urged them to attack their teachers. The police are questioning the girls to see exactly how far they carried their inciting messages.

The girls claim that the incident was meant to be a joke but the police are taking no chances. The special day was on last Friday but the police action managed to foil the activities planned for the day.

A concerned parent who got to know about the planned attack on teachers told the police about the plot and the police took the necessary steps to stop what could have potentially been a deadly day for some teachers.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong commended the parent that raised the red flag and urged other parents to do the same by monitoring their children’s online activities.
