The scene is familiar regrettably police shoot a 14 year old. The media shows pictures that make the child in question look angelic. However, the child in question had a rap sheet and just fired a gun. Are the critics of NYPD going to feign ignorance that stop and frisk does not prevent tragedies like this. Where are the media reports of the rap sheet and gang ties of the deceased.
It is regrettable anytime a police officer has to use deadly force. We should always give police officers the benefit of the doubt unless overwhelming evidence dictates otherwise.
