8 & 10 year old boys rob a convenience store

OAKLAND — It was no mere game of cops and robbers when two young boys, ages 8 and 10, used a BB gun to try to hold up an AM/PM convenience store at an ARCO gas station in East Oakland on Thursday night, demanding candy and cash, police said.

"It's very sad that kids so young would be trying to do something like this," said Oakland police spokesman Officer Jeff Thomason.

Just after 7 p.m., police received a report of an armed robbery in progress at the AM/PM at 98th Avenue and International Boulevard. When officers arrived, the store clerk directed them to the two young boys who were still in the store, Thomason said.

"They had come in and told the clerk they didn't have any money, but they wanted candy and the money in the register," he said. "And they showed the clerk the gun."

Specifically, the boys demanded gum and Push Pops, Thomason said.

The boys were searched, and one was concealing a gun, police said.

"A BB gun isn't just a plastic toy gun," Thomason said. "You can hurt someone with that."

The boys are apparently cousins and live at the same address. Police called their parents, gave them a "notice to appear" in juvenile court and turned them over to their parents' custody, he said.

"A notice to appear is in lieu of taking them to juvenile hall," he said. "But we're looking at charges for this. Armed robbery. They will have to appear in juvenile court."
Yup, that's Oakland...

I think their parents might need to partake in that whoop-assery too.

Sure, you give them a life sentence and they're parolled in a year. They've got the taste for crime now, there's no reforming them. I say stick 'em in the chair let God sort 'em out.

it's sad but true... I am a bleeding heart liberal type guy, but seriously? IF you are so ****ed that you are robbing stores at 8 years old: it's a wrap. I am sure it is environmental, I am not even suggesting that these kids have any mental defects whatsoever, in fact they are likely genetically well to do (exhibiting such adaptive behaviour and survival skills).

That being said throw em in burlap bags and toss em' over the bridge, before they rape somoeone's daughter and kill some guy with a job...

Good point, we don't want to be wasting precious electricity on scum like them.

Ok, first of all where the heck were their parents? Normally 8 and 10 year olds dont just wander into town to go to a gas station and why did they have a real gun looking bb gun? An 8 and 10 year old should only be allowed one of the "half the real size made entirely out of plastic with a colored orange tip" type of bb guns that fire only plastic ones. If the guy behind the counter thought it was real it had to be the metal type that are sold at Wal-Mart that fire metal bb's. And only adults can purchase those.

SO all in all, the fault lies all on the parents for not knowing what they are doing and what they are "playing" with.

Agreed. I call myself a moderate, but on the issue of the death penalty I am liberal. But these kids, really don't deserve a second chance. $10 says they end up killing someone in an armed robbery before the age of 18.

Its today's video games they are just too violent....





Sorry I had to say it before someone else did. I am speechless I can not think of what I would do if my kid robbed a store at 8 or 10. Yes beating his would be a start but really how do you get the point through to a kid that young? Further more what would have happened if the store worker would have protected themselves? Who would have been in trouble then?
