A strange and frightening story out of Portland where a young woman was the victim of an attempted robbery in a church parking lot. And while it's sad enough that churches are no longer safe - the truly scary piece of the story was the age of the perpetrators: seven and eleven years old. Glenn played the audio on radio this morning and reacted to the latest sign that the Mayan apocalypse may not be that far off.
Apparently two young boys, ages 7 and 11, tried to rob a woman in a church parking lot in Oregon.
The 22-year-old woman was in her family’s truck waiting for her parents, Portland police said in a statement, when the young boys approached her with a gun.
Ami Garrett of southeast Portland told officers that when the boys approached her, the younger boy told the older boy to “show her your piece” before demanding her car.
When she refused to give them her vehicle, assuming the gun was fake, they reportedly demanded cash and her phone.
“They were children,” Garrett recalled on Sunday, according to Oregon Live. “I didn’t think they’d actually have a real gun.”
On the radio show, Glenn played audio of the news report of the incident. Shockingly, during the interview with Garrett one of the kids, an eleven year old, actually walked up to the reporter and confronted the victim and the reporter. Because of his age, the network could not show his face on air.
"This is how upside down the world is," Glenn said. "I mean if he's old to say I'm going to blow your brains out and I've got a gun, and it's real, and it's loaded and it's cocked, I don't think I really give a flying crap about the all-important TV rules."
"And the kid is dropped off by police with his parents. Nothing happens to him. He's not detained in juvie. They don't do anything to him except drive him home and leave him with the parents. The next day as they're interviewing the victim he brazenly walks up to them," Pat said.
