    The bicycle bandit has been caught....somewhat OT

    so this is a curious story....

    a twelve year old kid on a bicycle has robbed multiple establishments at gun point. the gun was lended to him by a 16 year old. both are now in custody and will be charged as juveniles....


    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/1...223174681.html

    EVERETT, Wash. -- A 12-year-old boy has been arrested for his involvement in robbing a store at gunpoint, and stealing a tip jar from a barista stand, according to police.

    The first crime occurred in late August at Pecks Drive Market when witness say a young man pointed a black revolver directly at a clerk, and demanded money from the cash register.

    I think stuff like this may be used to argue for more gun control....and it's very state specific

    I think the kid should be lucky that he didn't ever rob a place that had an open or concealed carrier in the establishment, he might not have had a day in court.

    All he has to do is say he was on his way to or from an outdoor activity. That will at least help him with possession of a gun portion.

    At 12 years of age? I don't think so.

    Unfortunately some people think these places actually rehabilitate.

    My apologies for thinking that post fell into that category.

    Hey Spanky, can I borrow your .357?

    Sure Darlene, anything for you.


    12 year old ... wonder what he thought he was doing? Mimicking his brother or something?

    We'll never find out though...in all likelihood.

    One night in Sno-Co lock up I learned all about how to clean out houses. It's really interesting. I asked the guy about armed home owners and he said with his method he makes sure no one is home first. He only did day time B&Es and was responsible for over 100 unsolved cases in Sno-Co alone. In King County they caught him due to a stolen computer that had a lo-jack type thing on it when it was turned on. He confessed to over 100 in King County to play let's make a deal.

    I've heard that one night in Sno-Co makes a hard man humble.

    This leads to an interesting question!

    Would you shoot a 12 year old carrying a gun? I have to say I would have a hard time justifying such an act unless I was sure my life was in immediate danger, and even then I may hesitate.

    Definitely not for the simple act of "carrying a gun".

    If "my life was in immediate danger" or imminent risk of serious bodily harm. Unfortunately, the gun doesn' know the age of the person taking such action. I hope to never be called upon to make such a decision.

    Deploy in a war zone where they use juveniles as soldiers. You will not have a hard time justifying that act as it occurs, very, very tragic. However, the baggage after coming home is unimaginable. Don't ask how I know

    I think if I am looking at a muzzle I will not be thinking about age, but caliber. It would suck to shoot a kid, but I would blame the parents. As pointed out some of those child warriors have been taught to be incredibly ruthless. Some gangs even use young kids to do their dirty work, because they know they will just get a slap on the wrist. Right now it takes five or more incidents with a gun before it is treated seriously here in WA. (IIRC)

    William Henry McCarty Jr. (aka Henry Antrim, William H. Bonney, and Billy the Kid) started his life of crime at the age of 15. It is said that he killed 21 men over the course of his infamous career. While that number is disputed, lives could have been saved if he had been stopped earlier.
