At least eight students at Wilson Middle School reported finding staples in their lunch Thursday, Wyandotte police confirmed Friday. 

In an email to parents, Jason Krajewski, the school principal, said that two students had bit into a staple and six others reported having one in their salad during eighth-grade lunch period. 

“Through our investigation, a number of students came forward with information that was helpful in catching the offender,” Krajewski said in the email. 

Wyandotte Police were notified and the school reportedly suspended the minor for 10 days, a Wilson parent confirmed.

“It’s not much different than bringing a gun to school. You’re really trying to hurt the kids when you do something like this,” the parent, who asked to remain anonymous, said.

Several students allegedly suffered minor injuries, and a number of others were afraid to eat their lunches because of the incident, the parent said. “As far as I know, there have been no criminal charges.”

Wyandotte Police Detective Jerome Yoscovits said Friday that the culprit, a 13-year-old sixth-grader, has been enrolled in the city's youth assistance program for juvenile defenders. 

Police declined to comment further because the case is under investigation.  

No serious injuries were reported. 

Did Wilson make the right decision, what are your thoughts?

This is just AWFUL ! I hope once you narrow down the culprit, they are reprimanded. I would not be opposed to expulsion either! That person definitely knows right from wrong being in Wilson. Just disturbing and I am glad nobody was severely hurt!

Not surprised, though, that he's the age of an 8th grader but in 6th grade. And I don't care that I'm talking about a child.. He's a little jerk.

I hope this child receives help that is needed to stop something worst. This child needs to learn to love and care about others not hurt them!

He's already on the juvenile list, therefore I believe prosecucution and expulsion is completely reasonable. I would hope this child gets further assistance before he does something more serious.

kick him out of wyandotte

Yes this is horriable but comparing it to bringing a gun to school is a little intense. Yes the staples could cause great harm and possible life treating but bringing a gun to school is a lot different. When was the last time a kid shot up a school with a Stringline?

Hopefully the parents of the children are aware of the potential injuries a little staple can cause and what to look for. The kid is only in middle school. It was calculated and he/she did it. I feel its no different than bringing a gun to school. If this is what he is capable of now, what happens later? Definitely needs to be addressed and nipped in the bud.

There should be zero tolerance when something like this happens. Our students have the right to go to school and be safe. Staples in their lunch, come on!! This student should be expelled from Wyandotte Schools, not just suspended for 10 days.

He needs his ass whipped. Put a little fear in him to make him behave.
KaJo Lyell December 07, 2013 at 11:59 AM
And his/her parents need to be examined and punished also. Something is not right with this kid and it probably starts at HOME!
Cynthia Loucks December 07, 2013 at 12:54 PM
Let's hold the parents responsible for this child!!!

10 days is too soft of a punishment and this is why kids continue to cause problems - staying home, watching TV, playing videos games and sleeping in isn't punishment, it is pleasure. I live close to Wilson and I cannot believe the cussing and disrespect a lot of kids have towards adults. They run in between cars, walk in the middle of the road 2 or 3 side by side and give the finger, refuse to move for a car, and yell derogatory remarks at seniors. I much rather drive past an elementary school where the little ones still behave and listen to the safety. When this type of behavior is allowed and tolerated, it is no wonder why society is like it is.

"Staples are not much different than bringing a gun to school." Huh ????? No wonder this knuckleheaded parent wanted to remain anonymous. Gotta agree with Brian's comments above - right on the nosey.

Dangerous behavior starts somewhere!
Jeanette Marron December 07, 2013 at 10:42 PM
I think the punishment is a bit light. This could have really harmed students and while it might have been a prank it was a dangerous one. putting others in danger deserves expulsion

This is terrible. It's hard enough getting children to eat salads. This kid should be thrown onto one of those 'Scared Straight' shows.
William Riley December 09, 2013 at 03:13 AM
I'm sorry all you lovers of Dr. Spock, but ever since coporal punishment was eliminated because it was considered "child abuse" and would cause bad kids to develope a "complex", you have no one else to blame but yourselves. Enjoy your "Brave New World"!
