Current Event Cat of the Day: Knife Attack at Pittsburgh High School

Current Event Cat - Knife Attack High School

These days school shootings are a dime a dozen, but you never hear much about mass school stabbings. Well, not anymore! Twenty-four people were reportedly injured at around 7:15 a.m. on Wednesday at a Pittsburgh-area high school during a knife attack.

A 16-year-old knife-wielding student ran through the school’s hallways, stabbing people indiscriminately with two ordinary kitchen knives until the school’s 60-year-old assistant principal tackled him to the ground.

The culprit, Alex Hribal, is accused of stabbing 21 students and a security guard on Wednesday morning. Two other students were injured in the aftermath of the attack at Franklin Regional High School – most likely trying to escape from the stabbing rampage. Luckily, no one died and as of today only one student remains in critical condition.

Alex Hribal is being held without bail in a juvenile detention center. Police announced Wednesday evening that they are charging the 16-year-old sophomore as an adult. He will face four counts of attempted homicide and 21 counts of aggravated assault.

The students, who describe Hribal as a “typical kid”, never saw it coming.

“I didn’t really know what was going on at the time,” one victim said. “It was all kind of a blur.”

“He was very quiet. He just was kind of doing it,” another witness said. “And he had this, like, look on his face that he was just crazy and he was just running around, just stabbing whoever was in his way.”

No motive for the attacker has been announced yet, but one victim summed it up like this:

“I feel he has some issues he has to work out.”

Yes, he probably does.

Happy Meals Can Be Addictive – Especially If They Contain Heroin

Happy Meal Heroin

A McDonald’s drive-thru employee was arrested Wednesday after undercover cops in Pittsburgh caught her selling heroin via a Happy Meal box.

Shania Dennis, 26, was arrested after undercover law enforcement officials conducted a drug buy. According to the officers, “the way that the deals would happen is that the customer looking for heroin was instructed to go through the drive-thru and say, ‘I’d like to order a toy.’ The customer would then be told to proceed to the first window, where they would be handed a Happy Meal box containing heroin.” Better than the side of apples!

When the undercover cops asked for a toy with their Happy Meal, Shania naturally added the heroin, and being the nice girl that she is, included the actual toy as well. The undercover officers recovered 10 stamp bags of heroin inside of their Happy Meal box and recovered 50 more bags after searching her. She was immediately arrested.

Luckily, the drugs recovered Wednesday do not appear to be related to the fentanyl-laced lethal batches of heroin that have been blamed for 22 overdose deaths in southwestern Pennsylvania – so you can continue ordering Happy Meals without worrying about any health consequences.

As for Shania Dennis, she is now charged with two counts of possession, one count of criminal use of a communication facility, one count of prohibited acts of delivery, one count of possession with intent to deliver, and a bunch of counts of selling junk food to junkies. But in Shania’s defense, McDonald’s did tell its employees to get a second job
