A 5th grader in Ohio had trouble with her homework, so she asked the local police department for help.

10-year-old Lena Draper messaged the Marion Police Department on Facebook early Friday morning. It took just a few hours for someone to respond and help her nail that tough question.

Lena's mother shared the conversation on Facebook, and it went viral.

While their effort was applauded, the answer was not. Turns out the police department gave Lena the wrong advice.  We're still giving them an A+ for effort.
