Man, can't we just get through one holiday without some scumbag ruining it for everyone else?

MLive is reporting that a sharp piece of metal was found inside a child's Halloween candy in the small village of Wellson in Manistee County.

Yeah, Ron Weasley. We're equally confused/concerned as you are.

Apparently, a razor blade was cut to fit inside an unsuspecting tootsie roll and the parent found it after a night of trick-or-treating.



Police are trying to replicate the child's route from trick-or-treating in order to find the person who thought this was okay to do.

Clearly the person who did this was trying to harm a young child, but they failed to recognize that tootsie rolls are clearly an adult candy. The parents found the razor and not the kid. Nice try, scumbag.
