Sam Grant nearly celebrated his eighth birthday party in jail.
The North Carolina boy had been charged with two felony counts of discharging his BB gun.
The parents of a then-seven-year-old North Carolina boy are beyond angry after their son was charged with two felony counts of possessing a BB gun. Just moments before the child was expected to answer to the allegations before a Catawba County judge the charges were dropped.
But their world got rocked when the received a letter from the Department of Juvenile Justice summoning the family to court.
They told us that they considered it to be a violent felony discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, Robbins said. It was crazy. We completely disagreed with the charges.
Their son was now facing the prospect of a year on probation, hundreds of hours of community service and a criminal record.
We couldnt imagine Sam standing in front of the court as a judge read him the charges, he said. How is he supposed to understand that? Hes eight years old.

Cherry immediately call the sheriffs department and offered to pay for the damage to the car. The deputy sheriff took a report but said he wasnt going to press charges and neither was the driver.

Was it black covered in scary looking stuff fully automatic with a mind of it’s own and capable of a million a minute fire rate? You know like those AK M18 SUV Glocks?
Assault BB gun?
BB guns can shoot your eye out.
When I was just a pup down in Alabama, a good friend shot me with a BB gun in the stomach. No blood. No foul. That was how we kids rolled back in the day.
So can a sling shot. Where there’s no fire there’s no firearm!
when i was a kid we actually had gunfghts with actual BB guns. You know you’ve been hit, but it doesnt hurt
If he were one of Eric Holder's people, nothing would be happening to him.
Got to manufacture non-Eric Holder criminals. Reparations!
We did too,Cant say I would want my Grandkids doing it, but it sure was fun.
The older kids in my ‘hood had BB gun wars and wore heavy jackets. My parents disapproved of me joining the ranks.
Some don’t agree wrt rail guns.
Sue the unions involved.
They are corporations with deep pockets.
When I was a kid since everyone didn’t have their own BB gun, to make it fair we made spears, blow guns, and bows and arrows to shoot at each other.
They all drew blood.
I’m sure you were too kind and gentle a child to do anything like that.
In fact, I bet you were so kind and gentle as a child you never ever had a grass burr fight.
NOOOOO, you would never put a grass burr in anyone’s back would you.
Everyone in North Carolina should get out as fast as possible.
No, it was not one of Eric the Red’s people.
There is a pic of the kid at the link. He is white. You know a cracka. /sarcasm
Yep, it would be no fun as a kid growing up today.
Things we did without a thought are now illegal and carry penalties.
I hate it. Avoid at all cost the reminders of how it really is today.
