Facts: 1.- kid is a criminal burglarizing. 2.- kid ran away trying to avoid arrest. 3.- armed criminals in general would shoot a cop if they have to opportunity to escape incarnation. 4.- being in the line of duty most of the time means a life or death situation. 5.- kid abously was carrying the Airsoft gun to intimidate people if he got caught. 6.- officer didn't know the gun wasn't lethal because it looks fucking identical. There you go cojudos latino parents, your kid is dead because you suck at your one job with him that is to give him orientation, education and manners.

I have been shot by one of these and despite them generally not having the ability to be lethal it f***ed me up ... and they are manufactured to look like real guns ... here's an idea ... don't pretend to be some tough guy who thinks they are invincible... If someone pointed that at me against they would become acquainted with my desert eagle.

What were the parents expecting the officers to do? Pepper spray his foot? Maybe if the parents were better at their jobs their son would be alive.

Another example of how to not get shot by police. 1) Don’t commit crimes 2) Don’t run from police 3) If you break rules 1/2 don’t appear to have a real gun Although this is sad, I think we can objectively say that race wasn’t a factor in the shooting of this boy

Was the orange tip removed or painted over by the owner? If it was seems to me the owner could be sued by the kids family.
