Uh, I don't feel sorry for the brat because he was shooting at the police. If the kid was un-armed it would be a completely different story. But no, this young teenager didn't have enough common sense to not run around with a gun. We have school shootings for example. Until there is evidence showing that the brat didn't have a weapon and was firing it I'm sticking with this as a justified take down of a perpetrator.

That is not the law. The police need to prove the suspect had a weapon.

I don't understand how the law and order crowd can be so, well, not about the law.

Sorry mom, I don't believe you and you "good boy" story. Shame it escalated to him dying, but you gotta know, if you shoot at the cops, you are not long for this world.

It's almost always like that. I've only seen a few times where immediate family members can own up that a relative has done something illegal and deserves what happens to them.

@Black Sabbath what are you on about? Unless it's proven otherwise that the young gang-banging kid wasn't shooting at them (which is what forensics teams are for), then the police can fire back. 14 years old is enough to know better.

“a good boy.” - “He didn’t do anything violent,”

Sorry Mum, maybe things are different where you come from but I'd say that shooting at a police officer is just a little bit violent. Good boys don't carry guns let alone fire them at police officers.
