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.
