    No one was being threatened when the police arrived. The pellet gun was tucked away. The kid was moving nonchalantly, making no aggressive gestures. All the aggression, all the urgency, all the commotion, all the confusion is caused by the way the police storm the scene. Most likely, the kids was trying to display for the officers that it wasn't a real gun. Unlikely he intended to draw down on the cops with a pellet gun, although its moot, as the gun never left his pants.

    How can you defend such rash actions by civil authority figures?

    You don't find it disturbing that the cops lied about what happened? The report said he was told to drop it 3 times. When did that happen?

    And what about the guy who was shot in Walmart? Did he **** up too?

    Police responded to a report of a man threatening people with a gun. When they arrive (a report of an individual threatening people with a gun implies a need for a sense of urgency) the individual with the gun walks towards them, raises his short and reaches for the gun. The police responded exactly how they should have.

    Don't know. They claim the cop shouted it 3 times. How long does it take to shout drop it 3 times? Frankly...I don't care. Going with what is and was known, there was 'a guy' threatening people with a gun and when cops arrived, the guy with the gun walked towards the cops and reached for the gun. That's enough for me.

    That's what it appears to me happened as well...but it still ****ing sucks for all involved.

    I wonder how that guy who called 911 feels?

    Who was being threatened when the cops arrived? Your mythologizing of the police is blinding you to reality.

    He probably feels like a good citizen. There was a guy walking around in a park pointing a gun at people and threatening him. He did what he was supposed to do. I hope he feels good about it.

    I am not for a second saying it isnt a tragic situation. Just sayin...it is a situation that happens all too often and could be avoided by people not doing stupid things.
