B.C. boy, 12, busted for armed robbery
By Dharm Makwana, QMI Agency

VANCOUVER – A 12-year-old Nanaimo, B.C., boy spent Wednesday night behind bars on an armed robbery charge.

On Tuesday, the child, who’s had more than 100 run-ins with police, pulled a replica handgun on a 21-year-old victim and demanded his cellphone and cash.

The victim, who was exiting his vehicle, fled and called police with a suspect description allowing officers to quickly capture the adolescent and another boy who was with him at the time.

Investigators have yet to determine if the second boy was an accomplice or oblivious to the heist.

There are no signs either suspect is involved in organized criminal activity.

Police cannot identify the suspects under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong said criminal children are usually more likely to be shoplifting than holding people at gunpoint.

“I’ve been in the RCMP for 29 years and I’ve never had a 12-year-old pull an armed robbery with a weapon,” she said.

She added the boy’s mother is working with police and the Ministry of Children and Family development to steer the boy onto the straight-and-narrow, but a lack of support program has proved to be an overwhelming obstacle.

Armstrong is hoping government-funded therapy options can be offered now that the boy can be formally charged under the YCJA because he is 12 years old.

“From the criminal perspective, we’re hoping he can get into a youth forensics program so we can figure out what are the root causes of why he’s doing what he’s doing, what we can do better and what we can do to get him on a healthy track,” she said.

The boy will appear in Nanaimo Provincial Court Thursday morning.

More than 100 run-in with the police?

And they think they can steer that kid on the right lane? LOL!
This little piece of shit will be a career criminal if not dead before 18.

how'd he get the gun at 12? if his parents got it 4 him then wtf, cuz after over 100 run-ins with the police i think they would have figured not to let him near a weapon of any kind. Anyways thats the kind of s--- thats going to make things harder for actual airsofters and possibly get it banned in canada.

they said replica not airsoft so we dont know that for sure altho it might be
i dont think airsoft would be banned because of this though maybe just tighter regulations or more age regulations

Doesn't mean that people won't be ignorant to what airsoft really is. Hopefully they do instate a Canada-Wide 18+ rule. But due to his history, I doubt it will have a large effect. If any.

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

Ministry of Children and Family development?

For real? That shit exists? I mean, I know about Family and Children services, or Childrens Aid Society, but the government feels the need to interfere with family development?

Then again, if the parents aren't doing it, I suppose someone should... Not that I have a lot of faith in institutionalizing families and shit...

This is all kinds of fucked up right here.

Forget it.

Stupid kids do stupid things.

There's no need for more regulations.
