AIKEN, S.C. — South Carolina officials say a 10-year-old trick-or-treater pulled a 9mm handgun on a woman who joked that she’d steal his Halloween candy. The Augusta Chronicle reported Tuesday that a 28-year-old woman told authorities she recognized some youngsters Monday evening and she joked she’d take their candy. Aiken Public Safety Lt. David Turno says a 10-year-old in the group said “no” and pointed the handgun at her. Turno says the gun wasn’t loaded but the boy had a clip of ammunition. He was taken to the police station and was turned over to his parents. Turno said the boy’s brother, who is also 10, told officials he also had a gun and both weapons were recovered by police. Turno says the boys got them from their grandfather without his permission.
You know what I would trade the booze and sluts of Halloween for in a heartbeat? Well nothing. But if I honestly had to pick something it would be the candy. Being a kid and trick or treating until I couldn’t trick or treat anymore was one of the best memories of my life. Starting at dusk and basically mapping out what the best routes were to hit up the most houses in the shortest amount of time. Teepeeing the prick health freaks and dentists of the neighborhood who handed out apples. But it was all worth it when you walked up to a house that was handing out king sized candy bars. And remember the houses who just put a giant bowl of candy on a chair on their porch with a sign that said “Take One, Please. Happy Halloween” Those houses were like the Mecca of the neighborhood. Just empty the entire bowl into your pillow case and sprint the fuck off as fast as possible. Get home and sort out the Crunch bars and M&M’s and Snickers into neat little stacks on the floor in your room. Shit was a blast. So you better believe if some bitch told me she was going to steal my candy I’d pull out a 9mm and pistol whip the shit out of her too. Because candy is that sacred on Halloween. As far as I’m concerned this 10 year old Scarface did the only logical thing he could.
