School janitor bribes students to beat up classmate for $1


A janitor at a Michigan public school lost her job after reportedly offering two fourth graders a dollar to beat up one of their classmates.

Other students and a teacher say they overheard the unidentified janitor proposing her offer to the students and told the principal. Once she was confronted, the janitor reportedly admitted to everything.

The student’s mother says she’s considering a lawsuit against the janitor. Grand Rapids police are currently looking into the case as well.
