In Beverly Hills MI yesterday, a 10 year old by was held at gun point by two boys wanting his shoes, the camp counselors allowed recess to continue on and the parents weren't notified about the incident until they picked up their son from the day camp that something had happened. The mother feels the camp should have been put on lock down and the parents should be notified as to what had happened right after the incident had occurred.
Steven Satovsky, says they did follow the procedure and did everything possible to protect the children. He says, he went out to the play ground and notified the Beverly Hills Police Department and shortly after, him and his staff composed a letter to give to the parents regarding the incident. The boy's mother said, the letter was very vague, only indicating that there was an incident of harassment at the day camp. The letter did not mention, there was an incident of harassment by two non-BHC teenage boys involving a gun.
The camp did not follow school procedures. School procedure is to bring all the children into the building and put the school on lock down even in the event there is a gunman in the area. Not only was there a gunman in the area, but on school grounds. The Beverly Hills Day Camp is held at the Beverly Hills Elementary School, therefore they should be bound by the school's policy. Regardless, if it was teenage boys with a gun. Teenagers nor anyone else that intends on using a gun to commit a crime with for that fact can not be trusted with a gun.
