‘How to kill your teacher’ video linked to Castlegar youths

Nanaimo RCMP contact Castlegar detachment after video surfaces on YouTube

  • Jan. 21, 2015 12:00 p.m.

On Wednesday, Nanaimo RCMP contacted the Castlegar RCMP and alerted them to a six-minute video which was posted on YouTube on Jan. 12 entitled “How to kill your Teacher.”

The six-minute video shows two boys about the age of 10 or 11 years old holding toy guns and discussing how to kill a teacher.

The Nanaimo RCMP had initially been contacted by a Florida radio station host who stumbled across the video and then he found more footage by the same user featuring the Nanaimo airport.

Nanaimo RCMP commenced an investigation into this posted video which revealed that the boys responsible reside in the Castlegar area.

Castlegar RCMP have spoken with the two boys responsible and are currently working with them, their parents, as well as with school officials to try to understand why they would create such a video.

The children indicated this was intended to be a joke.

The boys have been made aware how inappropriate their behaviour and video were.

Due to the age of the boys (11 and 13 years old), charges will not be pursued, however, alternative measures are being utilized to ensure this does not happen again.
