He was playing gangsta thug, he was pointing the gun at people.
There is nothing about his actions and demeanor that suggest he was just a 12 year old kid "playing"
The parents should blame themselves, their lack of common sense and lack of proper parenting is the cause of their sons death.
Acting like a criminal in a high crime city like Cleveland while brandishing a very real looking firearm is just stupid,and wins you the Darwin award, here`s your sign.

All the more reason to talk the situation not go in guns blazing. The cops dropped the ball bigtime in my opinion. People made it seem like this took place in a busting park and there was no chance to approach and talk.
he was probably playing army man
he was probably playing cops and robbers
he was probably playing cowboys and indians
i think not

I'd rather risk getting shot than risk killing a 12 year old kid for playing with a toy gun. No way in hell could I live with that. The insanity gripping us needs to fk off already.
