    Re: Cleveland boy with fake pistol killed by police

    I seriously doubt the kid "went for his gun". That's illogical. The kid obviously knew the gun was not real and was not going for his "gun" to blow the cops away.

    I don't believe any of this crap.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    That's a cute little ending you put on there.

    Or don't try again, doesn't matter to me.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    AGREED!

    Same here... we used to go into a big wooded area behind houses dressed in camo and using very real looking rifles and such to have bb gun wars... climbing over people's fences and such to get there. No cops. Nothing. We got some nasty looks if the people saw us but that was it.

    Cops pull me over and the first thing I do is go for my gun even when I don't have one. It is 100% logical.

When the police arrived on scene, they knew the basics...young kid pointing a pistol at people. They told him to raise his hands. Instead of raising his hands, he is reported to have gone for the toy gun. If that is what happened, then its tragic, but it is a good shoot.
    Shooting a kid with a toy gun is never "a good shoot". That entire term is idiotic in the first place (not you, the term).

    Unless there is something other than the cops word that he has, "gone for the gun" I don't believe it for a second...

    If you would prefer to play with words I suppose cops could use a term like legit shoot as opposed to 'good shoot'. I'm just not all that delicate when it comes to things.

    You can choose to believe what you want. You find it more realistic that a cop rolled up to a 12 year old and blasted him for no good reason other than the sheer joy of killing a kid as opposed to the kid going for the gun for whatever reason......meh.

    I believe that the cop probably made a mistake and is looking to cover it up...
