Portland: Boys, 7 and 11, Attempt Robbery With Gun


Two boys, ages 7 and 11, are accused of trying to rob a woman with a loaded gun, police said Sunday.

The 11-year-old boy had a .22 caliber loaded handgun when officers found him Saturday at the parking lot of a church, police said. Detectives were investigating how the boys obtained a gun.

"Officers told the 11-year-old to keep his hands out of his pockets but he ignored the officers and tried putting his hand back in his pocket," Portland police said in a statement. "Officers grabbed his arms and recovered a cocked and loaded .22 caliber handgun in his pocket."

The boys are accused of trying to carjack a 22-year-old woman who was in her family's truck waiting for her parents at the church parking lot. The woman said the boys then demanded cash and her phone, and that the younger boy told the older one to "show her your piece." .................(more)

1. The officers are to be commended

for not shooting the 11 year old when he put his hand in his pocket against their orders.

2. Yes.

Very dangerous for them, when one of the boys had a loaded and cocked gun in his pocket.

This is so incredibly sad. Where did these young children get the idea that robbing people at gunpoint was something they should try?

Yikes.

Will need to wait for more information, in order to know the full story here.

3. Prediction: Both will be life-long inmates

The type that goes in and out of jail until they do something horrible, and then stay there for the rest of their lives.

5. LOL. "Keep Portland weird".

 

Yeah, that's pretty fucking weird.

I foresee un-comfy beds and orange in these boy's futures.
