Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
Thats not reckless. Thats doing their job. You want to get lost in the cute softened picture of the innocent little angel and what turned out to be a toy that his own grandmother stated was altered to look real...be my guest.
And if you'll kill someone on mere suspicion, I hope you don't have a carry permit. It's why I'm not a big fan - people armed and ready to kill because they think there MIGHT be a threat is not my idea of a good thing.
The caller said several times it might be fake. I hope you stay away from playgrounds. Kids playing cops and robbers and you might have to take out the whole kindergarten class.sure we do. he pulled up his shirt and was reaching for the gun. that is enough right there for the police or any other citizen to react.
And you know he was reaching for a gun how?
Let's assume you've got a gun in a shoulder holster. Do I get to assume that when you're reaching into your inner jacket pocket you're reaching for a gun and blow you away cause I'm skeered? Or should the standard be you pose an actual threat, pull the gun, threaten me, yell at me, something to indicate your intention is to 1) pull your gun and 2) use it to kill me? Women who carry a gun in their purse. What standard do I use to shoot them - when they put their hand in the purse or when they pull out a gun? Etc.....
Why is their safety key, and not the civilians they're job is to protect?in that situation they shouldn't be expected to issue any kind of command. their safety is key.
They shot the kid with the intent to kill, then stood around for 4 minutes watching him die. How would an execution be any different?there was no execution (appeal to emotion)
Fake guns, guns that the caller suspected and told 911 she thought were fake.since they aren't executing people (appeal to emotion) they acted within their right to protect themselves and others from people waving guns in public.
When the cops came on scene the kid did not have the weapon exposed and nobody else appeared to be in the immediate vicinity. At that point the cops responsibility was to determine whether or not the kid was the suspect they had been called about. They had the opportunity to exercise a more cautious approach to the situation and chose not to. That, by definition, is "reckless".
And shouts die mother****ers! and points the gun at people in the courtroom. What happens? Be honest.
