    Is boy, 14, the youngest person ever to be killed by an NYPD cop?

    The shooting of a 14-year-old boy Sunday by a rookie police officer has shocked New York City. The police commissioner concedes that the teen may be the youngest person ever killed by the NYPD.
    Despite the tragic young age of Shaaliver Douse, Ray Kelly was quick to defend the white 26-year-old officer, who just graduated from the police academy last month.
    Kelly said the teen had fired multiple rounds and was chasing someone through the streets of the Bronx about 3am Sunday.

    When two officers confronted him, he refused to drop the pistol and pointed it at them, the Commissioner said at a press conference Sunday evening.

    The officer fired a single round from his 9mm service pistol, striking Shaaliver in the jaw and killing him. <snip>

    Textbook case of a justified shooting it appears. How long until the apologists chime in blaming the cops for shooting this "poor little boy?"

    If the kid was wielding and shooting a gun in the streets, then I see no reason to place blame on the cop.

    Personally, I think the police department hierarchy has to take a harder stance when something like this happens. Speak from their heart instead of from their political playbook. Let me write the Chief's interview with the press:

    Our entire police department expresses sincere condolences to this young man's family. It is tragic that we live in a world where a 14-year-old is on the streets at 3 AM in the morning with an illegal gun chasing down another citizen and firing on him. His failure to obey police officers at the scene who ordered him to drop his weapon were met with his firing another shot. This is tragic -- for this teen's family and for the police officer who was forced to shoot.
    I was very surprised to learn that the two police officers on scene were rookies. I thought newbies were paired with experienced cops.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Rest assured, there will be some that do. They are enablers. As long as they continue to make excuses and try to divert blame in their denial, the cycle continues.

    Look, there's one on CNN now saying how a 14 year old boy has been needlessly shot down. She, and other mother's like her, (father's too, where applicable,) assure many more children will cross that lethal line. Never the child's fault. It's beyond sad. It's pathetic.

    I don't think he is the youngest. I spent part of my youth growing up in NYC. I seem to recall a story about a very young boy with a toy water pistol being shot by a cop way back when. I think it was in NYC...might have been L.A. though.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Open and shut.

    Only one in denial is the family.

    The problem is parents. Back when I was in school for example if I was punished by a teacher (spanking, etc.) and they found out I would get it twice as hard when I got home. Now-a-days, lay a finger on a student and you get lawsuits up the wazoo. Same exact thing here, keep your kid off the street at 3am with a gun and shooting at people then you don't have to worry about him getting shot. If the parents (or anybody) try to blame this officer that is totally out of line.

    There shouldn't be any city wide police; they're a menace to society. Individuals and neighborhoods armed w/guns can protect themselves.

    What evidence is there that the "kid was wielding and shooting a gun in the streets" ?
