A 13-Year-Old Was Robbed at Gunpoint Yesterday While Selling Candy For a School Fundraiser

At 5:30 yesterday, a 13-year-old student at Dallas' Anderson Middle School was at a Dixon Avenue apartment complex selling candy for a school fundraiser when she was grabbed by the neck from behind.

The attacker, whom the girl identified as a seventh grader at Anderson, briefly choked her, then pulled out a black revolver and put it to her head.

The girl and her friend screamed, and the boy backed off. He was "just playing," he said and began to walk away with his two friends. But he wasn't playing, not quite at least. He ordered one of the other boys to "get the phone" -- a $100 black handset from Metro PCS -- which was then taken from the girl's back pocket. They apparently didn't touch the candy or whatever money the girls were carrying.

Neither the victim nor the suspects are identified in a Dallas police report, but the girl told officers that she would have no trouble IDing the robbers at school. The girl's father came to the complex to pick her up.

Considering what they charge for those chocolate bars, it's only fair--they've been ripping us all off for years.  ....and "World's Finest" my ass.


no, it really is tragic that this is where we are today.  I simply was trying to bring some levity to a sad situation.  Please don't construe my words to be an endorsement of muggings.

@whiteguiltlib & blowmetone

An innocent 13 year old girl robbed and the only thing you have to offer is your racist hillbilly bullshit? Really? Did mommy ignore y'all when you were little? Did daddy touch you in the wrong place? Seriously, what is y'alls major fucking malfunction?

We should arm 13 year old Candy sellers. "Here is your box of nasty chocolate to sell. Don't forget your Glock and your ammo. Pull your pants up so the holster fits right."

Poor kids.  

The greatest problem with being poor is other poor people.

I thought everyone in the Dixon projects was armed. I dare any of you to drive down there after dark.

I'm sure the NRA's solution would be to arm 13 year olds.

Seriously, its unfortunate, but you cant just send your kids off on their own door to door anymore to sell for fundraisers, between pervs molesters and thugs, its not safe.  And this seems even crazier, the father just dumped them off at some apartment complex to sell that they dont even live at.  WTF is wrong with people today.

Just watch... Rick Perry will now announce that all Texas kids running fundraisers should be armed with rocket-propelled grenade launchers to defend themselves.

@Lakewooder You try to take some disingenuous moral high ground then make a sexual abuse joke? Typical hypocrisy from morally devoid liberal scumbags like yourself.

@Lakewooder Hey there are idiotic naive white-guilt libtards on here actually claiming that blacks don't commit an extremely disproportionate amount of violent crimes, then we get Jim Shit and Tone and that Patrick dipshit with all their white-guilt open-the-borders propaganda almost every day. What is your major malfunction?

@Esteban Mainzer ...while conservatives pretend guns are used mostly for self-defense and insurance against "tyranny".

@James Dorward The girl was already disarmed. Now assuming that the attacker had a real weapon-- why wasn't he disarmed? It's already quite illegal for a 7th grader to carry a revolver and use it to commit armed robbery. How many laws did he break? Weird.. doesn't seem like he gave a shit about Whitey's feel good liberal utopian bullshit.

@ScottsMerkinYeah, it's just not safe like it was when we were younger...

@ScottsMerkin Yes, hiding everywhere. Just like how all kids were going to be inducted into satanic cults in the 80s.

@ScottsMerkinNot only are you correct, but these "fundraisers" are a joke.  For the amount of work the money raised is pitiful and the only time that I see these products are for school fundraisers.  Additionally, what happened to the old fashioned bake sales?


See: http://www.worldsfinestchocolate.com/

Basically, when the day is done, less than 50% of the gross proceeds go to the fundraiser.

@Lori Hensley McKinnon The kid was black.  There's no way the Texas Republicans are going to endorse putting weapons in the hands of black people.

Dear little hillbilly, I'm really sorry. I guess my comment hit too close to home.

@bvckvs Since when does the term "ghetto" imply anything about race? Seems hypocritical to make such an assumption and then call someone else racist.

blowmetone

@bvckvs Actually it is. Most violent crime and homicide in the US is committed by blacks against other blacks in predominantly black neighborhoods. Or the "inner city" as clueless white guilters like yourself like to say.

@observist Oddly enough, the DO rarely posts any articles when guns are used for self defense. Doesn't fit their agenda or narrative.

It's funny how the Libertarian fringe of the Republicans say that since some people break laws, we shouldn't even try to have laws at all.

Not surprising - since the Libertarian Republicans are in favor of things Americans find felonious - like pedophilia and heroin addiction.

Now, you're saying, it's wrong for us to pass gun-laws because you'll just break those, too.  But we're doing it anyway.

Thanks in large part to concealed carry, 3 strikes and you're out, & mass incarceration of criminal blacks, all things demonized by naive white-guilt libtards like you, yet now you want the credit for the results. Libtardism is a mental illness combined with a goofy faith-based religion.

Worse yet is the fact that since no parent wants to send little Travis or Trisha cold-calling door-to-door to peddle their popcorn, anymore, they hit us up incessantly in our workplaces on behalf of their little entrepreneurs.

@bvckvs you are obviously extremely naive, uninformed, and ignorant of the facts, like most white liberals.

@whiteguiltlib It's just typical liberal racism..

@bvckvs you are obviously extremely naive, uninformed, and ignorant of the facts if you think that acknowledging the extremely disproportionate amounts of violent crimes committed by blacks requires any kind of "racist form of math". What a fucking joke.

bvckvs

@blowmetone Your racist form of math only works at convincing you and your fellow psychos.

It doesn't work on people with jobs and math skills.

@blowmetone This was posted because it was a kid selling candy getting mugged, not because of a gun. Plus the irony is you mentioning agenda or narrative.

@bvckvs @blowmetone You can have your meaningless spat with blowmetone and the rest, I've got no interest in side issues.  However, you've got your labels all screwed up, as per the usual for this board.  Libertarians aren't Republicans. It's two separate political parties and ideologies.  Libertarians are not in favor of pedophilia and heroin addiction.  Libertarians are not advocating an absence  of law and order.  Try reading what real libertarians are all about, not what CNN or FOX tell  you they are about.  You might find, as I did, they're the only party that really makes any sense.

@bvckvs @blowmetone It is wrong to pass laws that punish or take away rights from those who have done nothing wrong. I bet you'd throw a tantrum over searching of bags on public transit.

@TheCredibleHulk @ThePosterFormerlyKnownasPaul I dont mind so much when I get hit up at the office, at least i know who the little fucker is that Im buying from and as long as that parent reciprocates when my kid is old enough to have to do that shit they cool
