Dude, the cops would be 100 times worse if they were privatized. The incentives to cover up shit would be massive.

No, the victim is a 14 year old, who doesn't think too much about consequences. I'm talking about the parents.

Do you think it's smart to give kids a "toy" that looks like a real gun?

Would you be surprised if your kid dies in an accident, when you give it a pit bike at age 14?

More likely to be fired as they aren't protected by police unions.

Of course I'm not, but it's a simple action-reaction thing and only logical that a gun will have no upsides in the hands of a 14 year old.

Aftermath:

Officer still on force.
District Attorney determined shooting was *justified.*
Family cant afford medical bills.
Including a $1300 ambulance ride!
Child missed 3 weeks of 8th grade.

The only message sent by system: Dont be black, in a backyard, & play w/ a BB gun.

The problem is the black community rallies over shootings that are probably justifiable, just because they were black. Doesn't matter if the guy was scum, "he din do nuffin". When a real tragedy happens, like it appears to be in this case, nobody cares anymore because we've become numb to it. It's the boy who cried wolf
