If Stephon Watts family knew how to get him the HELP he needed as well as they did in finding an attorney - this wouldn't have happened. Shame on the FAMILY!

Just the "mother" filed suit. Why? Maybe this is an issue for the Maury show on who the father really is (was)?

After all did he attack the police or did he not? What were they to do?

Would you know where they should have went,a lot of people are trying to find help just because their loved one needs it. No one will help until the problem explodes and then they shoot.

An innocent child was murdered for no reason.
The parents had no control over the ill-training of the police. The police did not have to use deadly force to handle the situation. Unless you have an Autistic child you can't imagine what it is like HELPING them on many levels. Thank God somebody HELPED the parents seek legal council
Hopefully this will HELP mold and shape the police force to use good sound judgement .

I'm feel very sorry for the family, hope they can sock it to the trigger happy cops. God I'm glade I'm not a cop, I have a Conscience that would bother me.
