    Default 13 year old boy shot and killed: Toy Gun

    So apparently this kid was carrying a toy replica of an assault rifle, a few police officers saw it, told him to put it down, the kid didn't listen and then bad things occurred.

Deputies handcuffed him and began administering first aid, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. O'Leary says deputies also found a plastic handgun in his waistband.
    What do you guys think about this? I mean, the gun does look pretty realistic...

    Fire when shot at.

    Also the police officer or whatever should only fire when it appeared the boy was going to aim at him.

    Kid should have listened. I mean if it was just a toy gun then why not just say its fake and put it down. Dumbass.

    Perhaps the child had a form of autism and lacked the necessary communication skills to comprehend under a stressful command. Even if the child didn't put it down, it gives the policeman no right to shoot/kill him. It was also clearly stated that he didn't even know if it was pointed at him or was going to cause any harm.

    The child is the innocent one.

    In a country where school shootings are becoming more and more common, you expect a police officer to sit there with a realistic gun POINTED AT HIM to get close enough to grab the gun and inspect it? Lol k. They told the kid to put the gun down and he did not listen.

    No one wants to see things like this happen, but you also have to think about it from the officer's perspective. He does not know this individual. He does not know what he's capable of. He does not know if the gun is real or not. It's easy to sit back with the information we have now about the gun and point fingers at the police officer.

    It wasn't clear whether the teen pointed the replica assault rifle at the deputies or made any type of threatening gesture.
    I believe both parties at fault here. The cops should know better than to fire at a 13 year old with a lethal shot, isn't there also a policy of don't fire until they shoot or threaten your life greatly (ex. A bomb switch or something)?
    I don't believe this kid meant any harm, I believe he was scared because real cops were holding real guns at him and he froze. I would if I were him.
    It's a sad day for sure, and I do believe these cops should get some sort of punishment for their accident. Nothing like prison for life though, since it was an accident and such.
    My question is, why did he have such a realistic replica in the first place? Did he have like friends around he was playing with?

    That is definitely a possibility but if that is the case, then the parents really should evaluate themselves. They shouldn't just let their kid walk around an urban setting with realistic looking weapons. You can't just do that and expect the cops not to show up at some point.
