Sadness But Understandable

8th Grader shot after not following command to drop his gun. 

Turned out to be a pellet gun. Sad. The parents want the cops to shoot to wound, their little angel was killed. I am saddened, but the cops, as I read it as reported, were correct. I am surprised it was only 3 shots honestly! More to this story will come out as it is a tragedy.

Blaming the cops in this instance is not the way to go.


  1. Well, I think if the parents are refusing to accept responsibility for their child's action, that explains a lot. There is no way this child didn't think it might not be a good idea to point a gun, any gun at a police officer.

    He was obviously troubled and your right, it is so very sad, but blaming others in not the answer.

  2. Parents are heartbroken and delusional, but the press is reticent in their behavior also, but listing only the emotional side of the story to make the LEOs look bad.

    Appreciate you commenting. Pop in more often!!

  3. It's all about responsibility (yet again)... Had he done the right thing, he's still here...
