He was only 15, has his entire life a head of him. Great kid and I definitely will miss him. I always told him he was going to be great one day... but Baltimore City Police Officers are "Trigger HAPPY"... and the officer should NOT be on administrative leave.... why does he get a paid vacation for killing someone??? It isn't fair and laws should be changed!! And they wonder why crime rates are HIGH in Baltimore!

Hi, My name is Mr. Reality, I don't believe we've met yet...

So what you are saying is that it is simply okay for a 15 year old to be carrying around a 44. caliber revolver....Maybe Mr. Angry Officer should have gave him a stern talking to while this kid was pulling out a gun on him. Do you think that may have worked better?(NOTE TO SARCASM).
What did you think was going to happen? Do you think the officer should have invited him over for dinner to talk about it? Maybe he should have bought him a cupcake first so this would have been a feel good story for all you wack jobs that want to blame the Officer for this kids "misfortune".

THEIR BRIDGES ARE WEAKENING
by: David W. Johnson, Jr.

Once, the Bridges that supported children were strong and protective

They stepped aboard coming out of wombs and walked to adulthood

Children relied on those bridges until they had clear and sound objectives

Those bridges were there for children if they were smart or misunderstood

Children learning to walk or teenagers leaning to drive, Bridges were there

Bridges kept drugs out of their children’s bodies, education in their heads

The Bridges knew where their children were going or they went nowhere

Children on those Bridges felt they had families not as if they were nomads

Children, Teachers, Seniors, Neighbors, Police all counted on those Bridges

Bridges made sure children went to school, came home and did homework

You obeyed those Strong Bridges or you were grounded without privileges

Those Bridges knew that without a guiding hand children would go berserk

Somebody tell me, what is happening to those Strong, Reliable Bridges today?

Why are so many of our children falling off of today’s Bridges and drowning

Bridges today are not sturdy and as a result, children are loosing their way

Without those Bridges, our children are doing less education and more killing

Secure Bridges for children to cross must have much more than four beams

Need more than strong spots in some places but instead strength throughout

Too many Older Bridge Builders give up without teaching new ones, it seems

Remaining Older Bridges, step-up and help the New Generation Bridges out

If you do not know it by now, the Bridges I am referring to is call FAMILIES

Good, Strong, Supportive Families is slipping away, leaving our children all alone

This is why all the WRONG people in life our children try to be like or appease

What choices do they have when our children are left to be parents on their own?

Strong parts of Bridges join other Strong parts and make the whole Bridge Strong

No longer can we afford to set, lie or standby idle while daily our children are dying

WE, yes WE, all responsible adults, have become deteriorating Bridges far too long

Children dying, murdering, drugging because WE,“Their Bridges Are Weakening”

WE ARE THEIR BRIDGES AND THEY NEED US BACK

When Hillary becomes our Fuhrer all this cop on child violence will stop.

Vote democrat and live in harmony and peace and have free healthcare

The reason why there is badness in some communities isn't because those people do wrong things it's because cops are fascist racists and it's all george bushes fault

When the govt stops wiretapping the terrorists, the terrorists will see that we care for them and they will live in peace and harmony.

Did anyone see that the terrorists are supporting the democrats for congress and president?

I think the police officer acted appropriately. A 15 year old pulling a .44 magnum out is not an act of compliance or of friendship. This wasn't some 9mm little dinky handgun, this was a .44 that leaves very large holes in people. If you think the police here are trigger happy, well maybe they are, but when its you who is patrolling an area that has 249 murders already this year and countless assaults with deadly weapons along with officers being targeted by criminals, you can decide how to act. As for me, I'd rather a good cop live and shoot a stupid kid armed with a big gun, than a good cop die because he didn't want to kill a violent armed 15 year old. He performed the city a service. God bless him and I hope his leave isn't too long
