This article brings very deep frustration I must express. Just know that it is directed to the article and not the user who posted it.
there needs to be a poll set up for this one if you would like votes, it'd be easier for everyone to see what others think
btw, imho, if the officers identified themselves... the kid showed no signs of becoming a descent human... he already had a track record as long as Barabas himself and was only 17? what is thisyoung MANgoing to do when he turns 21? what about 25?
he attacked the police and reached for someones gun...
with his history of violence and indescretion, i can see why the officers used deadly force, especially after being hitting two officerswith a bat, then reaching for an officers firearm? what was this fool thinking.
now in reference to my MAN reference... i recently saw something on tv about how kids at ages 6,7,8, and 9 used to work in the farm fields and mines here in the states. now in america we baby the "kids" way too much and they are becoming push over whimps that wouldnt stand up for their country, friends, or themselves.
i think we use the term KID too much. especially with teenagersonly a coupleyears away from their 20's. a 17 year old personknows good and well the difference between right and wrong. I REFUSE to make EXCUSES for humans that choose to live like fools and idiots then try and cower behind the term KID so they can get off easy because they want to cry to their mommy when they get thrown in the slammer...
