10 year old pulls gun in Philadelphia
#1
A 10 year old in North Philly pulled a gun on some women and assaulted a marine. Goes to show you can never start a life of crime too early. Wait 'till Nutter gets wind of this.

Damnit, and he probably bought it at a gun show without a background check.

There oughta be a law against these things.

Quote:In response to gun violence at city-owned parks and recreation centers, officials passed a gun ban on those properties in March. Mayor Michael Nutter signed the ban into law a few weeks later.

Under the ban, violators face a fine of up to $2,000.

It sounds like the kid was just following the new law, he didn't have the gun in a park.

He was actually building a life. Think of it, at an average of $50 per robbery he only has to get away with 40+ per arrest and he'd have a profitable business. After a while he will have some expertise, make $100 per crime and his business is going really well. He might even hire someone or two. That's economic growth and building small businesses, no?

You forgot the jobs created by increased need for police!

Watching the video, I wonder if it wasn't some sort of gang initiation.

Didn't take money, didn't physically harm anyone.

It might have been to see if he has balls. Not that they likely would have dropped yet.

That marine should have either beat his ass, or ended him. I hate to say the second part about a child. But doing something like this at that young of an age? I don't think he will be a very upstanding citizen.

Quote:Police say a 10-year-old boy seen in surveillance video pointing a gun at a female victim turned himself in to police Thursday night.

Authorities say the gun he allegedly used to terrorize people in a North Philadelphia neighborhood was, in fact, a toy.

Action News cameras caught the 10-year-old being driven away from Northwest Detectives after being interviewed Thursday night.

The kid's lucky nobody pulled a real gun on him.

I go to that area of town three times a week. Fucking shit hole. I would NEVER enter the city unarmed.

The similarities towards most of north philthy to the post apocalyptic world of Fallout 3 are amazing.

Well, there hasn't been any jobs there since the race riots in 1964. "North Philly" itself is shrinking in size. There's really only about 5 blocks left on Broad Street before the gentrification actually runs continuously all the way from City Hall up to Temple University. Hence the multi-generational poverty folks are screaming bloody murder that they'll be forced outta their homes; which is now such an old tune nobody really wants to hear it anymore. Let's see... crack den warzone, or hipsters and yuppies paying oodles of taxes snapping up $40-$90K houses and converting them to $280K homes... in a City that has no way to borrow money anymore and no businesses willing to say OK to tax hikes... it's a no brainer. More gentrification == less people shooting each other. Gentrification also caps the need to hire more cops and also limit the overtime they love to bill the City for.

Speaking of jobs, Steve Wynn from Las Vegas wants to put up a casino resort-hotel complex 4 blocks from my house... in Kensington:
