Since people are angry and looking for targets, the boy shot in Cleveland by cops is coming up a bunch.
I’m generally as far from giving cops the benefit of the doubt in most situations, but seriously? I grew up with gun safety, which I know isn’t universal, but also common sense, which should be. I knew better than to point fake guns at people and scare them, and that’s a thing that every child should know- particularly by age 12. When someone points something that looks like a gun at you, you don’t really want to guess if it’s real or fake. That’s not a luxury you have.
No doubt there’s plenty of blame to go around, but a child pointing a fake gun at people- especially one that looks real- shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
