Hugs and Best Wishes,
Randy sent this to me. It is very sad. I so dislike realistic looking toy guns. However the truth here is that the boy never pulled it and pointed it at the officer. That is key. If it had been pointed at the officer and he believed it was real and his life in danger he was with in his right to shoot.
However as I said the report is the boy reached for it, but did not draw or point it. Which says to me the officer panicked and over reacted. Look I worked as a private investigator and armed security guard for the sheriff of our country when I got out of the military service. We were taught to deescalate an situation. We were taught ways to use non deadly force when ever possible. We even were taught to take harm to our self before we hurt others. We carried many different non lethal weapons. we were trained how to use them. They were used on us. I hate to second judge an officer looking at a gun, but in this case he was not yet looking at the gun…there were other things he could have done. If he was properly trained. Hugs
I passed this over. Earlier when I saw this I was like , no biggie. Then I saw it three more times and decided to add up the numbers. WOW. Huge difference. Now I now first hand how elections can be stolen, how the game can be rigged, I life in Florida. I was here during the “butterfly ballet” where the name of the candidate did not line up with the hole punched to vote, I lived in that county and the ballet approved by the republican election supervisor was so crewed it was extremely hard to tell who you really voted for. I still say that the first G W Bush election was false, not an election of the people, but instead a coup by the supreme court. Whats amazes me is that all the conservatives sided with the court for an action it had never taken that it couldn’t justify and said was a one time thing, yet wont follow the same court on same sex marriage and equality. Yes in their favor Great, against them and we go to war. And in their view the other side better not complain or it makes the haters the victims. More and more I see the elections are rigged as much as possible by only one party, the republicans and I hope the people of the USA see it also. Look at the facts and data, the fake war on people voting more than once, the purging of the voter roles, notice how that happens only under Republican governors, the purge….Democrats don’t need to , they win their elections honestly. I get so tired of this lying stealing going on. Then six years after trying to make the Elected President as weak as possible, blocking all legislation to help the country, just to make them selves look better, deny Obama at all costs they said. That is not patriotism. It is bigotry and a denial of the rights of everyone who voted for Democrats. The republicans come up with more ways to steal and rig elections. Why don’t’ they just change to what the people want, and they wont have to steal the elections. Hugs
