This kind of thing can happen in Chicago.

A first-grader brought cute little bags of "candy" to school and started distributing them to friends.

You guessed it already, didn't you? The kid lives in a house with drug dealers, who told him the crack cocaine they were selling was candy. In an act of generosity, the kid was passing out little bags of crack to all his classmates.


A member of the household is believed to have stashed "40 bags of rock in his book bag . . . when he gets to school he finds them in his book bag, and he knows this is 'candy' because this is what [people in his home] say it is," Camilli said. "Then he starts handing it out. It's insane."

Welcome to America.
