The cop said show your hands as he pulled up. You can clearly see at :20 sec he's reaching in his pants pulling the gun out. They are like 10 feet apart. The boy is looking at the cop as he's pulling the gun out. Look at the picture of that gun and tell me if I pulled it out 10 feet in front of you how long before you decide if it's fake or not.
Damn I know everybody wanna crucify police but in this instance the cops did what they were supposed to. If he doesn't reach in his pants he's still alive today.
Understandable..But it seems by pulling up on him SO CLOSE(like you said like 10 feet away from him) they created a higher danger for themselves and then they reacted to that increased danger. There was no time devoted to accessing the situation. If I think you have a gun I'm not going to pull up on you and hop out a car 10 feet in front of you.
That kid was acting like normal 12 yr old.. He was playing around BB gun twirling it around.. He does point the gun at one person who appears to know.. because afterwards he talks to that person.. Then starts to talk on his cellphone and play in snow.. After that he goes sits down plays with the gun at a table.. He gets up starts back to a walk way with his head down.. Then cop car pulls up the pig jumps out shoots him.. Smh...
You forgot the part where he attempts to pull the gun out when the cops pulled up.
You think if that was a white kid in a white neighborhood it would have turned out the same way?
