‘A Plymouth Township police officer was threatened by three 8-year-old boys, and one even came at him with an ax, according to police.
“He said he was going to kill him. He made a threat toward the officer,” Plymouth Township Deputy Chief Joseph Lawrence said. [..]
“They’re only 8 years old so the officer is in a real bad situation because they’re children, they’re 8 years old. They can harm you as much as an adult can,” Lawrence said.
In fact, police said they repeatedly asked the boy to put down the ax, but instead he hurled it at the officer, missing him, but hitting the police cruiser.’
