    @ mad. So this way, the two cops get to go home at the end of the day & explain to their families that they ruthlessly gunned down an unarmed 12 year old child. I bet their families are so proud.

    So, officer safety trumps the life of a child? I feel sorry for you.

  • [1] November 27, 2014 at 8:18pm

    @ GALTS, I agree with you with the exception of I don’t care about the red tip. When the cops rolled up, the red tip would not have been visible to the cops due to the toy being in the waistband, & they certainly didn’t wait to find out before gunning him down. So that is a non issue here. Having a toy gun stuck in your waistband is not even a crime, much less deserving of the death penalty. Even if it was a real gun, it was wrong for the cops to shoot in this situation. Bottom line, we cannot allow cops to shoot a 12 yo kid. Period. The life of a kid trumps everything else. Kids do dumb things. That doesn’t mean you can kill them for it.

    Sarge, c’mon really? No Monday morning quarterbacking needed here. Every cop should know not to shoot a little kid on a playground. Ever. MMMMM Doritos.

    Tom, the only guns in this story are the ones the cops used. The rules of safe gun handling applies to real guns, not toys. This kid didn’t point his toy at the cops. For those here who say “the cops didn’t know he wasn’t a threat.” That applies for everything, & I guess it would be OK for a cop to shoot a driver at a traffic stop because he didn’t know he wasn’t a threat. Think about that. Citizens don’t have to prove to LE that they aren’t a threat. The burden is on LE to observe a credible threat. This kid’s toy was in his pants. That’s not a threat. If it was, then cops can shoot every cc holder that’s carrying. How far down this slippery slope do we want to go?

    @ fedup. I may have been a little rough on the caller yesterday. You make some good points. I do think the age of the suspect matters when he is a young child. Yes, kids do commit serious crimes, but it’s not common for this young of a child. In this case, the cops should assume going in that the gun was a toy, probably a 90% probability. I fully realize that makes the cop’s job more dangerous, but how many times does this situation arise? Very few. I’m not in favor of making cops take unnecessary risks, I have family who are LEO’s. We cannot however eliminate all risk, as they are trying to do now. When a small child is involved, the situation changes. The life of the child trumps everything else including officer safety. I don’t care what the kid has or is doing. He’s a child. If the police cannot swarm & disarm a small child without killing him, they have even bigger problems. Again, if the kid was older, that’s different. That little boy will be in the cold ground forever. I want those cops to rot in prison for a long, long time.

    @ whatisthatvelvet. I agree with you, however, I listened to the 911 call & it sounded like an older man. An older man should know better. If I saw the kid doing the same thing, the last thing I would think of to do would be to call the cops. If I was concerned, I would have gotten off my butt & gone out & checked it out myself. That boy was playing, on a playground. A designated play area. How does that make him wrong? If that kid were a little older, that would be different. There is a big difference between a 10-12 yo & 15-17 yo. Yes, I know times have changed, it’s a different country now. The only consequences that boy should have had, was maybe a good talking to. I don’t know what his family is like, they may be Ferguson types or decent folks. That little boy should be eating turkey today instead of laying in the ground. This is a missed opportunity as well. He could have grown up to be another Ben Carson, ok maybe a thug too, (I’m not an idiot after all.) We’ll never know. I do know one thing though. The cops trained to shoot first & ask questions later has to stop.

  • [1] November 26, 2014 at 8:58pm

    @ fly. I haven’t looked it up, but I would bet that there weren’t more than 1 or 2 cops shot by small children in the entire country last year.

  • November 26, 2014 at 8:55pm

    “What would you do, park a block away and call in Batman?”

    No, I would have walked up to him & looked at the toy.

  • [63] November 26, 2014 at 8:45pm

    I know I’m going to get flamed big time for this, but as I posted on the other thread on this story. This is just tragic. In my view however, these cops are wrong any way I look at it. They did NOTHING right on this except they didn’t shoot each other, & I would rather have had that outcome. This was a child playing on a playground. When I was a child, we did this all day everyday & none of us ever got gunned down by the police. We pointed unloaded bb guns, cap guns, and other toy guns at each other all the time. It’s called playing. It’s normal male adolescent behavior. A 12 yo cannot be expected to comprehend unintelligible, shouted commands by cops who roll up, jump out like Starsky & Hutch (remember them?) & immediately light this kid up. No excuse for this. I’d like to see both cops held for at least voluntary manslaughter, & the hysterical idiot who called it in should be sued big time. Also, both cops should be tried for violating the child’s constitutional rights. Yes, a child has the right to play on a playground without being gunned down by the police. Coming from me, that’s saying something as I’m as conservative as anyone on here. I’ll say one other thing. even if the gun was real, the cops were still wrong. If 2 cops can’t disarm a small child without killing him, they need to find other work. Yes it’s dangerous, but that’s what you signed up for. You don’t shoot a child. Yeah, I have a soft spot for kids. Let the down thumbs begin

    According to the Lt. Governor, obola ordered a stand down.

  • November 26, 2014 at 11:58am

    @ Tired, yes, I mentioned that a while back.I use the “if” “then” method. If this happens, then the cops do that. Like Cavallo mentioned, the Ferguson tactics are suspect due to interference by obola & holder. More could be learned from the tactics @ the Boston bombing response. That would be more in line with what I would expect. Although it was vs a compliant population. Either way, it’s quite obvious that if the regime tries to install martial law or gun confiscation, it will not go well for them. They rely way too heavily on CS, & intimidation. Against a well armed & equipped and motivated population with many trained force multipliers mixes in, the regime’s “operator” wannabe’s will get a very nasty surprise. Their shinguards & MRAPS won’t help them.

  • [52] November 25, 2014 at 5:51pm

    @ john, right you are. We are being played by the regime. We do not have time to care what a few blacks in Ferguson do. We must keep our eye on what’s important, the destruction of our country. Although Ferguson is part of it. Obola is vary happy today. Amnesty has been removed from the news cycle. This is by design. Does anybody think the Brown “family” arranged the demonstrations across the country? Or, is it more likely that Holder did it via the black panthers?

  • [2] November 25, 2014 at 11:55am

    @ spotty, apparently you haven’t seen a photo of the current POTUS. Racism in America officially ended the day he was elected, & all debts were paid in full. That card doesn’t play any more.

  • [4] November 25, 2014 at 11:46am

    OK, against my better judgement I’ll comment on this. DOL, The videos you posted are good, but don’t accurately represent exactly the situation in question. Close though. Let me say first, the GJ was correct in my view. I support Wilson. However, he did make a few mistakes, he wasn’t perfect here. None of us would be. He had already called for backup, he was outnumbered & the main suspect was a very large guy. He probably should have backed off & waited a minute for his backup to arrive instead of pulling his weapon. He was probably pizzed off in being disrespected by these punks, & his “you will comply” attitude cops are trained to have took over. Problem was, he doesn’t have the physical ability to back it up vs the “gentle giant.” Almost immediately he has to draw his weapon, & it circled down the drain from there. This might be a “how not to handle this situation” teachable moment. If you’re outnumbered & out muscled, wait for backup. These 2 punks weren’t going anywhere.
    Like you said, it’s Monday morning QB’ing, which isn’t fair. I wasn’t there. I’m merely pointing out that there are things to be learned from this that can help prevent this kind of thing. I’m glad Wilson is OK, & I hope things turn out all right for his family. Three lessons for people, don’t be a thug, don’t rob stores, don’t attack cops. Lesson for cops. Don’t let your attitude overload your azz. There are people out here who are not intimidated by you. Backup is your friend.

    Injuries? Really? I have worse injuries after a day of yard work. But I’m glad he’s all right. I thought he had a crushed orbital bone etc.

  • [5] November 24, 2014 at 5:00pm

    Regardless of who is actually in that photo. One that I have been looking at all my life. Every time I really look at it, something strange happens to my vision. It gets a little blurry for a while, & my eyes get watery a little. Must be an allergic reaction. Yeah, that’s it. I can’t really explain it, but there is SOMETHING about that photo. Those men. If for nothing else, God help us, we must save this republic.

  • November 23, 2014 at 9:30pm

    Mine is broken too. I used to not post, but I changed my mind. I figured if it has come to the point that we have to watch what we say lest the government put us on their list, then it’s time to speak up even louder. Now, I want to be on the top of their list. NSA, hear this. I have a list of my own.

  • November 23, 2014 at 9:19pm

    Yes, it’s the “easy button.” But you will get no agreement on here for that, it’s considered tin foil hat stuff. I agree with you though. It may turn out in the end to be what saves this country. Barry Soebarkah is not a legitimate POTUS.

  • [1] November 23, 2014 at 8:32pm

    @ mastice, Suspect? Suspected of what? Playing on the playground with a toy? THAT makes someone a suspect? Well, I guess we were all suspects when we were kids then. Gee, how were we not all gunned down? When I was a kid, we did the same thing every day! Cowboys & indians, cops & robbers, army etc. It’s called NORMAL adolescent male behavior. At least it was then. Now, it gets you killed.
