Teen boys charged with 3 D.C. robberies

By Washington Post editors

Two teenage boys were charged with armed robbery Friday in connection with holdups at three D.C. establishments, ABC 7 reports.

The two teens, 15 and 16, are not being identified because they are juveniles, District police said.

The boys are accused of robbing, at gunpoint, the Shrimp Boat carryout on East Capitol Street on March 29, the Menick's Market on Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue NE on March 30, and Tony's Market on East Capitol Street on March 30.

I hope the Summer Job's program for DC kids gets funded this year, or I'm afraid stories like this one (or worse) are going to become more common.

They'll never see any consequences.

At some point parents have to put their children (teens or not) on a very short leash!! and stop allowing them to go unattended if the teens are under 18 then mommy and daddy needs to know the company they are keeping and where they are at all times not just to keep them from doing harm but to prevent harm from being done to them--children are not animals that should be allowed to go roaming around unchecked!! If you love your child then you will keep you children in controlled environments to the best of your ability--if you don't then no one is to blame or reponsible for what happens to them but you!!
