From the Dayton Daily News -- Four Pre-Teens Accused of Extortion. I thank God once again that I'm done with school.




Four elementary school boys, ages 10 to 12, were in juvenile detention Wednesday facing allegations they robbed and extorted hundreds of dollars since March from a 10-year-old classmate at Franklin Montessori Year-round School...



The victim told police he had given the four boys regular payments of all but 3 cents of his personal savings of $85, a $100 bill he had swiped from his parents and other money he had taken from his parents, police said. One defendant told police he received weekly $5 payments since April. When school resumed in July after a five-week break, the payments resumed and the three others joined in, demanding payments for themselves...



Interviewed separately by police, one boy quickly admitted the threats, beating and robbery, police said. "(The boy) explained to me that he robbed (the 10-year-old) for fun and when the robberies had occurred, he found it funny and was laughing," a Dayton police investigator wrote in the report.



Police said the boy was so familiar with police television shows and movies that he could "recite the common rights and said that he knew what they meant."
