It might make him seem all grown but you would be making a mistake and would be wrong.

Its actually the parents' job to teach their kids that pulling a gun on someone and robbing them is wrong.

So the law is designed to ENCOURAGE Police Officers to KILL one of the suspects. That way they get to increase the charges and conviction rates of murders in the city. Nice. Crafty laws they got going on over there in Chicago.
On second thought, after the cops KILL a suspect, the law is also ENCOURAGING the remaining suspects to go ahead and start killing people since the suspects now know that they are going to be charged with murder anyways.
This law is a danger to the community. Once you know you'll be charged for murder (you didn't commit), then you've got nothing left to lose.

All the actions shouldn't be judged under the umbrella of the initiation of the crime? Why do that does that make it easier in court? Their combined actions have nothing to do with the one kids decision to pull a gun or the cop to kill him.

Maybe you should read up on laws a little more then.
It's not some magical new law that was made up for this situation.
