Whenever a gun is involved I'll side with the police for shooting someone. The sad part is, replace that kids gun with a baseball bat in that video and watch it play out the same way, and some people here will still side with the cops.
Absolutely, but only if a subject advances towards an officer with a weapon in an aggressive manner, whether it is a firearm, bat, 2x4, chain, knife, etc.. the officer has every justification to shoot the subject.
You will always get these bleeding heart liberals always screaming its only a bat (or insert another weapon) but the officer has to protect himself from severe or fatal injury and prevent the aggressive subject with a weapon from getting past him and potentially doing harm or being a threat to the general public.

Since this seems to be the thread for police shootings now:
Anyone hear about that kid earlier this year that heard a knock on his door, asked who it was, no answer, opened the door and got shot by a cop because he was holding a gun? Except it wasn't a gun it was a Wii controller.
Surprised to hear that the officer in New York was not indicted. Thought the case was pretty clear given all the witnesses and the clear video.
Probably because he tells it like it is and knows hockey better than you two dipshits? People respect his opinions, not like you two dipshits? He has a solid income, not like you two dipshits?
the last time the DOJ admonished them was back in 2004 but left it to Ohio to sort out their findings this time the DOJ will intervene
This isn't stemming from the Tamir Rice case btw (which also happened in Cleveland)
The investigation had been going on for 18 months due to
Holder said the DOJ's 18-month investigation was prompted by more than the November 2012 event in which 13 police officers fired 137 shots into a car after a high-speed chase, killing two unarmed suspects.
Perhaps if he didn't reach into his waistband, flee from the officer and struggle with the officer, he wouldn't have been shot. Doesn't matter if he turned out to be unarmed, you can't be reaching into your waistband, ignoring the officer's commands when he doesn't know whether you have a weapon on you or not, flee and they struggle with him and expect not to get shot. Guy was probably fleeing because he had a criminal record, weed and a weapon in the car and oxy on him.
What you're seeing is just a lot of pent up frustration and when kids are overly frustrated they'll just say anything, even if they don't believe it, to express how frustrated they are. (come on you guys with kids should know that)
After all most of those interviewed, with the more outrageous viewpoints, were teenagers. And in that crowd of protesters he only found a few with such outrageous attitudes, after all he just keeps interviewing the same 3-4 people.
So it's kind of a disingenuous video to use as a representation of the group
Violent protests broke out again in suburban St. Louis after another black 18-year-old was fatally shot by a white police officer.
Are the protest still valid when the young black child is the cause of civil disobedience?
St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said the officer was questioning the 18-year-old and another man about a theft late Tuesday at a convenience store in Berkeley when the young man pulled a 9-mm handgun on him. The officer stumbled backward but fired three shots, one of which struck the victim, Belmar said.
(mayor) Hoskins' news conference was interrupted by a pointed exchange with Jason Keith Coleman, a black Baptist minister who insisted the shooting was the latest example of deadly aggression by "trigger-happy" police toward blacks.
"Call it what it is — a police officer has killed another black man and this has got to stop," Coleman shouted at the mayor.
Why do leaders in the black community only focus on white cops killing blacks and lose sight of the responsibility that these young men lack.
Belmar said the 18-year-old had a considerable criminal record in the less than two years since he turned 17, with three assault charges, armed robbery, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.
yah, this is completely different. The freaking guy held a gun at the officer and a 18 year old should know the consequences of doing that. After the cops that got ambushed and killed just a few days ago, you have to be one real dumbass to think pointing a gun at an officer is going to end favourably for you
