While police scramble to do damage control a family has lost a child. Police are giving conflicting accounts of what took place with an odd sense of placing all the blame on the child.
What the American Public is finding out is that this is typical, Police murder someone and are put on paid leave, months of paid vacation. Lawyers get involved for both sides and cash in on the death and tragedy. It’s the tax payer and the family with loss who ultimately lose. We’re hiring the wrong people as Police officers, this is proven by their actions. Back in the day weapons were smaller six shot revolvers which required more trigger effort. Now when one shot would have taken down the suspect, Automatic weapons spray dozens of rounds. Not only is the suspect shot but innocent families and children behind the suspect are in danger.
All police can do is hold up a toy gun that looks similar to a real weapon, but if you look closely they do differ. Color, dimensions the toy has obvious differences when compared. Do police just want a reason to become gun ho and use their new fancy high powered guns which they parade around in?
