Boy Says Gun Pulled On Him At Beverly Hills Camp

BEVERLY HILLS (WWJ) – A 10-year-old boy says three teenagers pulled a gun on him during recess at a high-end summer camp in Beverly Hills.

As WWJ Newsradio 950’s Marie Osborne reports, the mother is so shaken by the incident she did not want her name revealed. She just wants to sound a warning to parents they need to check safety procedures at summer camps.

The mother said her son and another boy approached three teens during a recess at Camp Beverly Hills Club Monday afternoon offering a game of basketball, when one of the teenagers pulled a gun. Her son says the gunman told them not to move and fired the gun in the air. After asking for the shoes of one of the boys, the teens reportedly called them “suckers” and ran off.

“My son and the other boy went up to the counselor to tell him that there were three teenagers in the park with a gun and the counselor did nothing. He continued on with recess.”

The mother said police were not called in for a while and parents were not notified of the incident.

“I’m most upset about how it was handled. How it took so long to call police, the fact that they never called the parents of the two boys in the incident and I want other parents to know.”

The mother said when she confronted the camp owner, he offered her future camp privileges for free, promising to change camp policies. Meantime, the boys are cooperating with police, trying to identify the teenagers involved.

“He actually described the gun to the detective. It was a black gun. The detective asked him if it had a yellow tip, he said no, it’s a black gun with two, with red stripes on each side.”

Beverly Hills police would not comment on the ongoing investigation.  An attorney for the club says the club has taken every precaution to protect the children.

    “High end summer camp”. Hardly. BHC camp is simply a day camp. And a “gun was shot in the air” ? Sounds fishy. Any gun shot heard in quiet Beverly Hills, especially that close to the police station, would be cause for investigation, at least by neighbors if not law enforcement. I am skeptical of the story, sorry.

    • Mike

      Well it was probably your son who stole the sneakers.

  • JOe Dutra

    The kids’ story has some stink to it.

    • brassquintet

      It’s laced with fear. They were frightened to their soles!

      • lady gag-gag

        You shouldn’t judge until the shoe’s on the other foot . . .

      • J.D.

        What kind of HEEL would steal a kids’ shoes?

  • Flyrod

    Doesn’t Beverly Hills have shoot spotter technology. The story does kinda sound bogus anyway…

    • brassquintet

      This isn’t Compton.

      • Pauli

        Want to bet?

    As usual, the story leaves out the race of the attackers. Anyone who reads newspapers anymore knows what that means.

    • diondrey

      same color as the gun

      • Baltazar

        For the last time-there is no such thing as REVERSE Racism! Racism is the same for any ethnicity that discriminates against another ethnicity-black/white; white/black; Jew/Arab; etc. You are just so used to hearing Whites being “racist” against Blacks, that you consider the opposite as “reverse”.
        Now you know…

    • Sam

      They leave it out becasue the kids were black. If it were white boys it would be stated but in the PC states of American we have to leave the blacks, mexicans and all others alone even though they fill our prisons 7 to 1.

      • diondrey

        coourse anytime they leave out the race you know its black this is what the reverse racist lame stream media has done…now when anyone sees a story with the race of the perps not mentioned they think black

      • 1776

        Exactly. That burying of demographics is part of the cultural marxist mandate.

    • mekongdelta69

      Another ‘fine’ example of a black (non-racist OF COURSE) police chief, who cost people their lives, rather than go after another black (and Muslim) person that he KNEW was the perp.

    • Sir Kingsley

      If you want to know the race of the attackers, just find out if there were any hoops at the basketball court or if it was just the rims.

      • BoB

        So Larry Bird never played ball you ass?

    • mark

      You’ve got that right!

    • mark

      Of course, they can describe the gun as black but not the kids. Obvious.

  • Hank Warren

    No description of assailants, we can assume. Diversity, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

    “White Al Qaeda” is probably responsible. Whites are the new bad guys now from what I see in the media. I’m keeping a close eye on everyone — while living in fear and a continuous state of paranoia. I pray that the powers that be keep me safe from harm. They know best.

    • Brad

      Yes. Usually, over the last 40 years in Detroit or most cities, it’s ‘white al queda’ responsible for the crime. You are so smart. You sound like a really smart guy. You’re either a dumb white lib or another race baiting nig who needs a good boot in the ass.

        Nerd Alert, Brad is a really smart guy!

        Geez, ever heard of sarcasm?

        Yeah, Brad, you are REALLY thick, aren’t you? Jack was clearly being sarcastic while you, on the other hand, responded like a clueless moron. Thanks for sharing!

  • Chuck Magnuson

    Since the source is CBS WWJ in Detroit I’m assuming they are referring to Beverly Hills, MI, not Beverly Hills, CA

    • Booger McCoy

      There’s a Beverly Hills in Missouri?

      • mekongdelta69

        MO is Missouri
        MI is Michigan

        Look at the URL:

      • Eenie Q. Wolverine

        No, but there is a Beverly Hills n MI.

      • J.D.

        Yes, Booger, that’s why this story is being carried by WWJ in Detroit.

        READ much?

  • Ryan Mouk

    If those cowardly, gun swinging teens could rob a ten year old boy without remorse, then they can survive in prison for the next 25 years. It will give those bags of waste plenty of time to make some friends on the inside. Cowards.

  • walter12

    Th blacks in Detroit have gone crazy in the last five years. It is no wonder that no one else will live there. And by the way, all the gun laws in the world would not have stopped this crime, these guns are all stolen and sold on the black market in Detroit.

    • Facts

      ‘Black’ market?

      Ha, that is a racist comment and I am offended.

      (yes, that is sarcasm but yet totally believable, coming from the lib side).

    • len

      “, all the gun laws in the world would not have stopped this crime, these guns are all stolen and sold on the black market in Detroit”

      perhaps guns are illegally sold by the ATF (ala Fast and Furious) too.

      Oh right, they are.

  • jomoma

    Single mom… lying kid… bored… a gun with red stripes?

    • meggie

      Could have been a replica gun; I actually had one of those creepy 9MM looking beebee guns when I was growing up. It also shot darts. The gun could very well have been a fake gun but the boys would not have known that.

  • George Johnson

    On the black market!? Isn’t that racist? I’m sure white people buy them too! (JK!)

    The cops are impressed the kid can describe the gun? “It was black” Oh man, that really narrows it down doesn’t it! “It had two red stripes”? A racing gun?

    This all sounds fishy to me.

    • Dave Turner

      Didn’t you know Adidas makes guns now? Or would that be 3 stripes?

  • Kim Baliey

    “Blacks are not Human but wild African predator animals”
    This explains why the kids were held up by african predator animals.

  • DJ Fly

    I’ll bet both the kid who got robbed and the thugs who robbed him were both black. That’s the only thing that makes sense to me

  • mekongdelta69

    Of COURSE the perps were BLACK.
    This has been a rule of thumb in America for years and years and I’ve been saying it for years and years.

    If the race of the perp is non-white, their race will NEVER be mentioned.
    If the race of the perp is white, the word ‘White’ will be splashed all over the title and the article many times.

    There have been scores of thousands; hundreds of thousands of stories of black on white crime (look up the FBI stats by race) reported in every medium. The above rule will almost NEVER be broken, because 99% of the media is so far to the left, they could switch jobs with college professors in a heartbeat.

    (Extra nice touch that this ‘fine paper’ did by putting a picture of a white person holding the gun.)

    • John

      Don’t be silly. If you watch the TV crime dramas like Law and Order or CSI, you’d know that 99% of all violent crime in this country is committed by white males, usually rich and/or Christian.

      • brassquintet

        white heterosexual rich Christian males….

      • mekongdelta69

        99% of ALL movies, TV shows, advertisements – hell – even comic books now, the ‘hero’ is anything but a straight, white male.
        The bad guy is ALWAYS a straight, white, male (usually a bumbling, idiotic, evil fool too), who needs to be ‘straightened out’ by the ‘noble, all-knowing, all-wise, all-virtuous hero’ of the melanin persuasion.

      • J.D.

        Not to mention terrorism — God forbid anyone but a white male should ever be portrayed as a terrorist. That’s only on TV or in movies, though — in real life the TSA targets old, grandmotherly white women and white toddlers because the TSA is ALL ABOUT our safety.

  • tremayfreon caudwell

    i think we should set up a Free Trade Agreement with the starving millions in East Africa (you know… somalia). we offer to trade our blacks for theirs, straight up and for FREE. no charge, no commission. we’ll even pay the S&H (sorry but NO RETURNS).

    i have to figger we can do the trade for FIFTY FOR ONE, and make out like bandits. 50 of ours for one of theirs. hell, 100 FOR ONE just to sweeten the pot. and who knows, maybe the ones we get in return will actually work for a living–pick cotton or shine shoes–but if not, at least do soft shoe on de corner, for nickels and dimes.

    Wow some you commenters only prove that America truly hasn’t left it’s racist past. Maybe some of you should do a little more research on stories instead of just reading what Matt Drudge tells you to.

    • mekongdelta69

      P.S. to smarterthantheaverageteabagger

      I clicked your link and it said nothing about the race of the perps in the story or in the video – which means they were black.

      You’re not as smart as a Lipton tea bag….

      It happened in Beverly Hills, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Any questions? The chance it wasn’t blacks is not worth considering. This article lives up to liberal standards by the photo and omission of facts.

    all this trash talk would have been a lot less, if from the start the MSM were truthful and gave full descriptions to all crimes whoever they were, it became apparent many crimes were being committed by Blacks, far out numbering their % of population……. so in the end the MSM did much more harm than the so called good they wanted to archive… Same with Drugs, Aid’s etc etc..

    >>> After asking for the shoes of one of the boys, the teens reportedly called them >>> “suckers” and ran off.

    So were the kid’s shoes taken? It is left unclear. My guess would be no, but the point should be clarified. Also, if the gun was fired into the air, it should be possible to find where the bullet landed, and use it to help identify the type of gun involved, and if such a gun is found, to determine if it is the actual gun involved. If no bullet is found, it may be that it wasn’t a real gun, it may have been a starter’s pistol or something similar, shooting blanks.

    Why expect anything less? What’s racial majority population in jail? Who holds the majority of unwed and fatherless families? Who shoots up a Mc Donald’s over the wrong order or calls 911 for a bad chicken order? Who makes you think twice about personal security in parts of town?

    These are the literal animals that we are allowing to extort and terrorize society. With no central family unit to teach values this will come very soon to your doorstep.

    This still rings very true today from the Warsaw Ghettos in WWII and the Nazis

    In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn’t speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.
