10 Year old boy Arrested For Defending Self... With Pea Shooter
You can watch a news coverage of this here.
In my opinion, this is a story of what goes around comes back around. No I am not quoting from Justin Timberlake's song, but the bullies had it coming when they constantly provoke the boy. The boy also had it coming when he retaliated (being arrested is a bit too much though). The NYPD had it coming for handcuffing the boy which is unnecessary.
You will understand what I mean when you read through the article. I forgot how the quote goes, but something like this? For every action, there is always a reaction.
The NYPD didn't kill anyone this time, but they did harm a ten-year-old boy and are about to be sued for millions in taypayer dollars.
Anor Frank, a schoolkid from Staten Island, had been terrorized on the school bus by older, bigger kids, including a girl who stomped his chest. Rather than shoot, stab, or take some other nasty revenge, he decided to get them back in what he thought would be a mild manner...
On Wednesday, Anor was minding his own business on the bus when one his regular bullies began to bug him.
But Anor didn't fire a handgun at the boy. He had rigged his homemade pea shooter to fire harmless objects, and he pulled the toy out and fired it at the bully. Of the many news outlets that have covered this story so far, not one of them has mentioned that the bully received medical treatment or was in any way harmed by the shot. Nonetheless, the "victim's" family agreed that Anor should be arrested.
Meanwhile, the ten-year-old was handcuffed and arrested, taken to the station, and connected to a chair. When Uncle Emmanuel arrived, he found the boy crying from the pain and a disinterested officer filling out paperwork. After being charged with assault and reckless endangerment, Anor was taken to the emergency room because of the brutal handcuffing and now the family will likely sue the city of New York for millions.
