Did you watch the video? The kid is white, so of course they didn't shoot him.

You know, I'll just praise them for doing the right thing.

Good thing he wasn't wearing a police uniform otherwise somebody would have waited in ambush to kill him, white, black, or otherwise.

Oh does that happen to a lot of children dressed like police officers? I've seen police officers kill kids but I've never seen someone ambush and kill a kid who was dressed like a police officer. Which is weird, because you just implied that it happens a lot, and you're really smart. Hm.

Brow beat by 70 cops, the kid didn't stand a chance.

I couldn't root around to the death of the father in the fifteen seconds I'm giving to this topic. I hope it was something noble, not during a drug raid or rear ended by a drunk driver.

Dad was shot by a 21-year-old suspect in a standoff, who was wanted for suspicion in killing his roomie.

Man, I must be psychic, because I KNEW the kid was white.

/ to be fair, similar most likely would have been done for a kid of any background.

Since this is a cop thread, shouldn't you have used the full quote?  ;-)

Someday, someone will need to take the time to explain statistics to you.

This is not that day. This is the day when everyone points at you and laughs.

This is the one thing that police, military, firefighters, and even some paramedics have that you almost never see in other places.  I know that if somebody I served with in the military died, we would all do everything we could to help their family - shoot, I know a few guys who have taken over as surrogate dads when their buddies died in accidents/combat and the relationship lasted for years (usually would end once the mom either got remarried or the kid got older, and no - the mom never married the surrogate "dad").  My uncle visited the parents of his best buddy who died in Vietnam every couple years for decades until they passed, and he was at the funeral as a pallbearer.

I can not imagine the same ever happening at a large office building, warehouse, etc.  Sure, you'd get a card, and a few visitors for a couple weeks, and maybe they'd take up a collection around the office.  But do you think they'd be at your funeral?  Would your boss walk your daughter down the aisle 7 years from now?  Would your co-worker be helping your son run football drills 9 years from now?  Would they be checking in on your parents 25 years from now to just shoot the breeze?

No, the bonds formed are amazing in these types of careers, and they are on of the few things I miss about the military, and what I respect most of all these professions.

it's amazing how the relationship is different when you place you life into the hands of your co-workers.

Let's see.  He's white, so the end of the sentence is not "unloaded their service revolvers into him".

at the end of the day, right or wrong, they are trained to do what is necessary to go home to their families.  perhaps the gentle citizenry should consider doing the same.
