You don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit into the wind, you don’t pull the mask off the ol’ lone Ranger, and you don’t joke about stealing a kid’s Halloween candy.
A 10-year-old Aiken trick-or-treater pulled a gun on a woman who said she would take his candy on Halloween.
According to a police incident report, the 28-year-old victim told authorities she recognized some boys from her neighborhood while they were trick or treating near Schroeder and George streets around 6:30 p.m. and jokingly told them she would take their candy.
One 10-year-old in the group of approximately 10 juveniles responded with “no you’re not …” and then pointed a 9mm handgun at her.
I think if all the kid had was a bag of DOTS or taffy, this is a complete overreaction on the kid’s part. If he had those bite-sized Musketeers, no sense taking chances.
