    That'd be because the "journalist" who wrote it is clearly trawling published lawsuits for something controversial and building stories out of them. This isn't about news, its about entertainment. I guarantee the New York Post won't follow-up the case if it never catches wider media attention.

    It's the NYPD. Of course they're such thin-skinned cowards that they'd be in fear of their lives while talking to a teenager.

    I guess I missed your sarcasm. Of course I'm always serious. Message boards are serious, serious business. :p

    Just being autistic does not prevent a person from being a threat. Not saying that this kid did pose a threat. There really isn't enough information to know this. But it sounds like you are suggesting that just because he is autistic, he couldn't pose any threat to the police officers.

    This guy is autistic and firebombed some dealerships.

    The Sandy Hook shooter had Asperger's, which is considered a part of the autism spectrum.

    Like I said, we need more details. Just being autistic doesn't mean the teen wasn't a threat or potential threat to officers. The situational details would be needed to determine this.

    Bingo. I can't take this story at face value either. Not till I know the facts.

    Where is the cops body cam? That should solve this whole issue. If there is no cam then ill just go ahead and believe the mom. Cops have their own job paycheck and pension to protect.

    there has to be more to this than what we know so far

    so many questions....and no freaking answers

    Geez, these people are going through hard times.
    I bet if they didn't shoot or beat so many people up (or to death), it wouldn't quite be as problematic.
