1. Oklahoma County District Attorney and those cops are assholes.

No way was that shooting necessary, unavoidable, or justified.

2. The fucking piece of shit cop SAYS they have a cap gun as he is walking up to the yard


It didn't sound at all like a real gun but a cap gun, he knows it and he fucking fires anyway???? And he tries to act all normal after he just shot a child in their own backyard. Total scum!

4. Cop had oppurtunity to communicate with victim from safe cover,

but appeared to prefer initiating a life or death confrontational ambush.

6. yes, but

but more important is gun use, gun (so-called) rights, and romanticism of guns is out of control and at fault... police in the Country are a result of what societal norms we have created

10. Training

This is how they are trained in the police academy and by their training officer. When making an arrest shout "stop resisting" so that when you get sued witnesses will testify that you warned the subject and you are then completely justified when you break their arm.
After all you need to practice using that really cool (sarcasm) arm breaking technique you leaned in the academy! This is also why cops were shooting puppies so much - next best thing to shooting a person. Once you get your first kill you become a hero to your fellow cops.

11. ANY jury would side with the kid!

Good lord...... an 8th grader playing with toy gun in an enclosed back yard and was shot by an tigger happy officer who did NOT identified himself as a police officer NOR give the CHILD ample time to comply to drop his TOY gun.

And the prosecutor is PROTECTING his department from civil damages. State Police should be brought in to conduct the investigation!

15. Times have changed.

I moved back to where I grew up, to be near relatives. It's a different place. Formerly nice neighborhoods are rife with drug dealing, meth, murders, muggings, sexual assault, child abuse. It's hotter, too, and there's more flooding (climate change and development has interfered with the land). The air and water is dirtier.

Things change. If I can sell my house, I'm moving away again.

16. I just thought the cops were smarter in those days. And there was more oversight.

13. Playing in a fenced in back yard, with a gun that even the cop thinks is a BB gun,

and is given less than a second to comply with the orders before he gets shot. This is criminal. They would have to either shoot me or restrain me from killing that cop if he did that to my kid. Of course, I'm white. In addition to it being very unlikely that I'll have have to face that reality, I have no doubt there's many people out there that would be more sympathetic to my plight instead of the non-stop chorus of, "He should have just done what he was told!" crowd that invariable pops up whenever these videos surface.
