Are you sure it wasn't an Airsoft gun? Clear plastic, colored "BB's" sounds like Airsoft ammo. The worst thing about Airsofts is the darn pellets don't degrade.

Yup, just give him a slap on the wrist and he'll come back again--maybe this time he'll have a different weapon. His younger sibling brought the gun from home?? Nice parents...or should I say "parent"...probably another little Fitchburg punk from a broken home--

how much you want to bet that this kid's father (if he hasn't left like most of them do) gave him a pat on the back and said, "That's my boy!" This poor kid is just doing what he has been taught. He is the next generation of Fitchburg's gangs.

Arrested? Seriously? Arrested? He shot someone with an Airsoft gun and they arrested an 11 year old? What ever happened to taking the gun away and not giving it back?

Never thought I would live to see common sense become a super-power reserved for very few.

I love the way people comment without having the slightest notion of what it's like to live in a less than fortunate way....Go drink another glass of champagne, while you're kids sing in front of the Christmas tree full of gifts for them....and while your wife makes dinner of a delmonico roast, with potatoes and gravy....You are heartless in your comments.....May you always be on the top end of life, so you don't have to live the life of those you point fingers at....Maybe you could "HELP" a less fortunate family by mentoring a boy without a father, instead of acting like a pompous a--!
