    Im surpirsed that the cashier gave the kid money.
    I mean I guess he/she didnt know it wasnt a real gun, but I think I would laugh at a little kid trying to hold up a store.
    Either way, I think the kid should spend a few nights in the slammer so he can see what he did was wrong

    Ha! I lived in FL during the days when Bob Graham was running for and was the sitting gov'nr. Graham ran on a program of accelerating the executions of those on death row, which, when elected, he carried out. We used to refer to them as Col. Bob's Fried Inmates. :D

    He probably will need some good male role models to make it to adulthood successfully-I know that sounds trivial, but it is so important.
    Yea, nothing like a stint in Juvi to "rehabilitate" someone.

    Rehabilitation is a myth. Once a criminal, always a criminal.

    This is a little more severe but I understand your point. It's difficult for me to imagine an 11 year old doing something like this. (my son is that age) I understand that young people sometimes do stupid things though. I don't believe that this child will necessarily continue to be a criminal...but the odds aren't good.

    I'm not so surprised that he did this. He's a product of his environment. They didn't have....well maybe they did..but my parents didn't let me watch movies like Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs etc and play Grand Theft Auto when I was a kid.

    I might have done the same thing at a point in my young life. I wouldn't underestimate young males because having been one, me and my friends could conjure up some pretty crazy things to do on hot summer nights.

    Har har har....

    First, no. I didnt actually. I knew my parents would kill me.

    Second, stealing a piece of candy is not armed robbery. It takes a whole other level of criminal to go into a store armed. BB gun or not.

    Cashiers are told to give the money regardless. One doesn't take chances.
