Men Steal Boy's Sandwich at Gunpoint

And the Donkeys of the day are these geniuses. Four men from Philadelphia are behind bars today for robbing a teenage boy of his meatball sub at gunpoint. According to police, Ernest Barnett and Rashawn Mallory, jumped out of the Ford Expedition they were traveling in and approached the boy on Saturday evening and pulled a gun and said: "Whatever you do, don't move....If you do anything, I'll cap you." They began to run the boy's pockets, but found nothing of value -- so they took his meatball sandwich the boy had just purchased for $5.50 from a local deli and got back into the truck. The boy had a cell phone in his pocket, but the thieves did not take it. After they left, he used his cellphone to call police and gave them a description of the thieves, who were apprehended a short time later. Rashawn, 21, and Ernest, 22, were charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, recklessly endangering another person and simple assault. Rashawn was also charged with making terroristic threats and for carrying a gun without a license. Two other men in the vehicle -- Rainey Smith, 21, and Antray Graves Jr., 20 -- were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, theft, and receiving stolen property. Inside the vehicle, which was registered to Rashawn's mom, police found a .38 caliber revolver and the meatball sub.

After reading this news, this story isn't quite so bad. OK, it totally is! A 10-year-old Aiken, Ga. boy pulled a gun on a woman who said she would take his candy on Halloween. The 28-year-old woman told police she recognized some boys from her neighborhood while they were trick-or-treating about 6:30 p.m. Monday and jokingly told them she would take their candy. One 10-year-old in the group of about 10 juveniles responded with “no you’re not …” and then pointed a 9 mm handgun at her. The clip was not in the gun at the time, but the boy did have a loaded clip in his possession. The boy’s brother, also 10, told authorities he also had a gun. The boy who pulled the weapon was brought to the police station where he was turned over to the custody of his parents. (Sidebar: The boys stole the weapons from their grandfather.)

Meanwhile, in Chicago, a group of teens mugged 63-year-old Sidney Tyson, stealing his cellphone and a $5 bus pass. The teens later returned the man's belongings.
