Solletica- why did you apparently delete the post of mine that you just responded to just a couple of minutes ago? I'm not sure if you have a reading comprehension issue, but if you will re-read my original post that you quoted earlier, you will see that it says
Note the bolded portion. I said IF the kid was wielding and shooting a gun. That most certainly implies an OPINION of mine, with a qualifier.If the kid was wielding and shooting a gun in the streets, then I see no reason to place blame on the cop.
"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
If the boy was wielding a gun and using it, from what I read, the police officer had no choice and he was just doing his job. Hopefully this, and other recent incidents, will force all of us to take a look at the issue of crime in these communities and we take steps that are actually going to be effective in keeping it from happening in the first place.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
