    Not so familiar with kids I can see...

    You probably wouldn't be blaming the cops if the kid was White.

    "These days"? Kids under twelve have committed murder for thousands of years...

    The cops told him to put up his hands. They gave him a chance. The kid made the wrong choice by going for the gun.

    Who's racist? Not me!

    I make a fair point:
    A Black cop in Utah killed an unarmed White kid...no mention.
    A White cop kills a Black kid in Missouri....it's all over the f-ing news 24/7 for months.
    In a police shooting scenario, the story get's more attention if the person shot was Black.

    I'm sure. My point however is that if you come across a kid with a gun it's much more likely to be a toy or a BB gun instead of the real thing.

    Can you follow the conversation please? You indicated that I was/could be a racist.

    If you didn't mean that then clarify and learn to communicate better. If you did mean it then you have problems...

    Guess they grow them bigger where you live.

    And I agree with you fwiw. A real threat needs to be dealt with. If the kid pointed the gun at the cops We wouldn't be having this discussion but according to what I read that's not the case.

    Like I said elsewhere if this was 50 years ago I'm betting the ending would have been different.
