Will BLM take hold of this event to further their agenda ?

What's the big deal over him being black? If he was a white robbery suspect would the police have laughed and let him off??? Of course they wouldn't people need to grow up and look past that at the fact that
A) a boy pulled a gun (although it was fake it looked realistic) on an officer
B) The police shot a kid.
TBH in this circumstance I don't blame them, but I know if this was the UK he would have been shot non-lethally and be alive for questioning.
So basically gun laws are poor, and the yanks need to grow a pair and knuckle down on their lax gun laws, then remove them from their officers.

I do sometimes wonder why police don't shoot for the leg; at least that way the guy should survive.
I suppose it's easier to aim for the centre of mass though & if it's your life in danger you're going to want to safeguard it.
Still, certainly for kids I definitely think a shot to a non-lethal area should be the first option where possible. At the end of the day, the officer has to make their own decision though.

Sounds like a very sad and unfortunate incident, where no-one is particularly to blame, but perhaps the police can learn from it.

"The weapon turned out to be a BB gun with a laser sight attachment designed to help a shooter's aim, according to police."

Nothing to see here, folks.

hmmm... well it doesn't look like it had it so that was a mistake.
but also why tf are parents not taking away their kids' BB guns, or telling them not to pull them out infront of police officers. Especially with all these shootings.
Though the officer shouldn't have shot that many times, once shoulda been enough :/

Idk, i don't think we can blame the kid or the officer.

What fool would point anything that looks remotely like a gun at a police officer? I understand that he's only 13 and teenagers make mistakes but even then you would know not to do that
