A 14-year old is not a kid, they are fully able to handle and shoot a gun, especially in that town where there is lots of crime, so police have to be carefull.
In the eyes of the law, the fourteen year old is a child.
Fully able to handle and shoot a gun, he didn't have a gun. Should we have cops shoot everyone that is over 13 years of age? That would cut down on the crime rates for sure!
Kids are old enough to steal at age 2. Should we execute everyone age 3 and up?
Send him out to buy cigarettes, beer, or even some Sudaphed, you will see that he needs to be 18 years old to buy two of the products, 21 for the other. There's no minimum age to be executed by a cop.
Funny thing is, 18 years is old enough to be a responsible voter, but not old enough to drink responsibly.

Our society is becoming paranoid in so many different ways.
We blame the officer, but we should be blaming ourselves.
This problem is not going to go away by putting the officer in jail.
This reminds me of a dream I had about school. (and a couple others) The aides, the teachers, most of the staff, they were robots. They were duty bound. There were nothing more than employees. The students were products. That's how it all felt. I had a problem, and instead of acting like a human, the aide acted like a robot. The dream feels like real life more and more.
The school I grew up attending was relatively friendly. Those days are coming to an end. Our society is becoming more and more regimented. More and more orderly. And more afraid.
Laws, guns, officers, education, money, other such things, won't fix this.edit on 13-9-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)

This cop had also shown lots of improper police work and should have been removed already.

So sad... reminds me of the time I saw 2 friends (not mine, but friends with each other) outside of a bar messing around with each other, just wrestlin like young kids do, cop shows up, thinks its a serious fight, tries to break it up, but you know they were just messin around, so they split it up, try to go on their way, cop tases the one kid out of nowhere. Gets him in the directly in the heart, kid dies a month later. Saddest part is that both of this kids parents were detectives in NYC. Cop gets suspended for 2 months, goes back to his patrols.
Serious problems in this country.
On a good note though, imagine the horrible things our inmates will do to this pig, might be the one time I actually applaud our prison system for locking up horrible creatures.
Snitches get stitches and pigs get stuffed.
