Granted, some replicas look just like the real
thing, but a police officer has to use some
discretion with kids.

The kid's name was Cruz? Hispanic? That
opens a can of worms. Profiling? Jeez.

Profiling really? I suppose the cop asked his name first and then decided to shoot

The boy was dead 10 seconds after the officers radiod the call they spotted someone with a gun. Hardly time to exit the car, hide behind the door, give 2 call outs to drop they toy, wait for him to drop it before shooting him. All the had was a startled boy that was facing away from them turning to see who was shouting, no time for the kid to realize who they were, what they wanted before eight 9mm slugs were heading his way. The faxt most of the hits entered from his right side indicates he hadn't even had the time for more than a quarter turn before being shot. That police dept and city is going to be missing a ton of money before te boys parents are thru with them.

Profiling doesn't depend on a name.
It depends on appearance.
Hispanic name? Probably Hispanic appearance.
That's all it takes some places.

Surely you understand that.

Was the boy wearing his NAME on his shirt? How could the cop racial profile? The kid shouldn't have been carrying a replica of an ak47.

You may be colorblind but the pigs aren't. They shouldn't be shooting kids with BB guns.

Pray for a clue, you moron. NO evidence of "suicide by cop," though many here wish you'd go that route.
