skullkrusher: I was young for my class due to the cutoff and I turned 14 at the start of my freshmen year of college... this isn't that weird, subby.


Neil, that was just a TV program not your real life. Remember? You like girls on the show.

TexanBoy: Lethal Weapon? We were playing with these in 5th grade. Thank God we didn't take them to school to shoot each other during lunch. I'd be a dead man.


Take off that orange cap and paint it flat black. (yes, I know children who have done this)

Point it at a cop and see what happens. (they didn't get that far before a neighborhood parent intervened)

9beers: Farking pigs could have waited for him to take the first shot, they would have then realized that it wasn't a real gun and responded accordingly. The other option was to shoot the gun out of his hand. Farking murdering pigs.


I know you're trolling, but you've never shot a gun before, huh? Ha ha "Shoot the gun out of his hand! LOL!"

yes, I know there is a video of a sniper doing just that to a guy sitting in a lawn chair, but I'm pretty sure the sniper was not there all settled into some sniping position in the class room.

Wait, isn't THIS what tasers are for?

ManateeGag: I think my brother was 15 in the 8th grade, mostly because he had to start school late due to a heart operation he had when he was 5 or 6. Kind of set you back. He'll be 50 next year.


Did he graduate yet?

Rapmaster2000: lack of warmth: Rapmaster2000: When I was in middle school there was a kid in 8th grade who had his license. He turned 16 towards the end of 8th grade.

An 8th grade classmate drove to school, except when was serving suspension.

I should not we had another kid whose age I was not sure of, but he had a full beard in 8th grade. We called him Teen Wolf Too.

/not to his face of course

Too far. Plus, even if the cops had a long-range taser (one that shoots a shotgun shell that does the actual tasing) the kid could (without necessarily meaning to) get off a shot by twitching--which tends to happen when you're tased. Plus, the probes might not work/stick and the kid could fire.

Yeah, that gun is clear plastic with an orange cap. The gun the kid had was black (not sure of the material), was detailed like a real handgun, and had no orange cap. From a distance it looked like a real weapon.

That said, there had to be some way for the cops to diffuse the situation without shooting the kid.

How about bean bag shots? Less than lethal force compared to lead bullets (if used properly).


If a person is holding a gun, you dont use less than lethal force.

Mirrorz: I graduated from high school when I was 17.

When I was in 8th grade we did have a kid that was 17 in our P.E. class but he was retarded and the coaches always had to slap him with a ruler to keep him from beating off on the toilet while we were in the locker room.

Spirit Hammer: I wanna know how come the cops didn't shoot the gun out of his hand or something.


Trained to aim for center mass. You don't shoot to maim, you shoot to stop the threat. And if you miss, well, odds are the threat will be extremely pissed off.

But that's okay. I'm sure the City will be paying seven figures to the family since it's current Texas precedent that cops have to determine if a gun is loaded and has the safety off before shooting. And since the kid had a pellet gun, well...

/wish I was joking
//stupid independent review actually put that in writing that a cop should have determined that there wasn't a bullet in the chamber and that the safety was on.

barely, after being sent to summer school for English. He inferred that his English teacher was a homosexual during class (using much more colorful language) and was kicked out of class for the year.

We had a 22 year old sophomore get shot and killed when i was in hs
 
2012-01-06 03:31:47 PM
Couldn't the cops have just used a whip like Indiana Jones to grab the gun from his hand? Or at the very least shoot a bullet into the barrel of his gun, rendering it ineffective? Better yet, wait for him to shoot, then shoot right back at that bullet so they collide in mid air and drop harmlessly to the ground.

So many viable options.

PS. Yes, it was suicide by cop: Police can be heard yelling: "Put the gun down! Put it on the floor!" In the background, someone else yells, "He's saying that he is willing to die."

Yes, because if it were a real gun, a cop should die before they enforce the law.

Right?

You are kidding, right? I am NO FAN of police, but in this case, if I were in that cop's shoes, I'm shooting first. I'm not risking that first bullet he fires being real, and entering my forehead, no way. This kid did everything wrong. Administrators told him to put it down, the police told hm to put it down, and he not only failed to comply, he pointed it at them.

Cops usually take a little too much initiative in newsworthy stories. In this case? This kid was the problem. No question, at least based on the current evidence. And his family blaming the police is unfounded, and irresponsible.


Reading comprehension. Let me show you it.

2012-01-06 03:39:30 PM
Always love the comments when things like this happen maybe they officers should have shot to wound, shot the gun from his hand.

Sure - this officer Quick Draw McGraw and he will shoot a gun sized target at 50' and the bullet will not ricochet off in some random manner. Also those wounds to the leg can hit an artery and bleed out, but Officer Dead Eye will only wing him

Now that the kid is dead all his relatives are singing his praises. The original article had a line about him coming into class and punching a classmate in the face for no apparent reason. Remember going to school with a kid like that? He was bigger than everyone else and a bully. He probably had his classmates terrified. Not saying he deserved to die but he put himself in this situation.
 
2012-01-06 03:46:53 PM

TexanBoy: Also, Jesus subby! You ever heard of cut off dates? I was 15 in 8th grade without failing a year. It's not that uncommon. People like you that make that make fun of people for being different are the kind of intolerant bullies that make otherwise good folk snap. I bet you're fun to hang out with...

Douche.


Easy there, re-re.

There is no cutoff date that would put a 15 year old in 8th grade at midterm in the school year unless he started late or was held back. 8th Graders this year should be born between 8/1/1997 and 8/1/1998, capping them at 14 throughout the school year.

Isn't it funny how everyone is always so praiseworthy after they are dead? Personally, I've never felt that way. I pissed all of my friends off in high school by refusing to attend the funeral of a douchebag who was sort-of in our circle of friends that died in a car wreck. "Sorry, but just because he ate a steering wheel doesn't all of a sudden make me think he's less of a jackass." Sorta makes me sound like an asshole myself (I am), but it's not like I said it to his mom, I just wasn't going to go. Screw that noise.

I started 8th grade 11 years old and turned 12 in November. Graduated at 16, knocked up girlfriend at 17, dropping out of college.

Perhaps being held back a couple years instead of promoted ahead a couple years would've changed things.

Back in high school the popular quarterback of our football team spread some pretty nasty rumors about me and beat me up at a party one night. He died in a boat crash the summer before senior year. I was really happy about it and basically told folks he was a cock sucker and I was glad the piece of filth was dead. I even went to the cemetery and pissed on his grave a week after they buried the prick.
