  • In the same situation if you point a gun at me I will fire first. Don't tell me you wouldn't !

  • With Columbine and Virginia Tech among others, I don't think the police should be prepared from anything other than the worst.

  • You don't point a gun at police, even a pelet gun. They did what they thought was necessary, so stop whining.

    • @killerz3000 its a middle school, and the kid had to have some sort of issue. he was a drum major in the school band, he had been in a fight that same morning. id imagine cops would follow different protocol dealing with children. where are the rubber bullets? and wasnt there supposed to be some sort of communication with someone inside?

    • @NoQQ Apparently not. They went straight in before more backup could arrive. Kind of a mistake, but they probably did not want to risk losing any children lives by waiting. But instead they took one out. But what I am trying to say is that the cops probably did make some mistakes in there protocol. But a gun pointed at you gets the blood pumping, and adrenaline starts going, and your not thinking, "how do I not kill him". You are thinking "Oh shit, gun, FIRE!"

  • Kids need to know that police are NOT going to give them any slack because of their age. After the Colorado high school shootings everything should be done to stop a person in school threatening others with a weapon. I applaud the efforts of the police here. Congratulations police, you succesfully killed a bad guy and a dangerous individual. Now if you could have tazed him a few more times when you caught him scateboarding on the sidewalk maybe this wouldn't have happened. I had to throw that la More..

  • Let me see if I got this right. You want cops to take time to try and identify if a gun pointed at them is real or not? Fuck the little shit. And good job officers.

  • I have this radio app for my phone that is pretty cool. Called the police few weeks ago about some kids throwing rocks in my neigboorhood. Cop was wondering why there was an echo with his radio when he was talking to me..LOL He even thought it was cool. I heard the whole thing from dispatch to arrest..Took about 10 mins and the kids were in front my house both in the back seat and I laughed at the "hiding behind shed" when they found them. I'd have to be really bored or something ve More..

      Not to one up you but this does! I gave my cat a bath cause it crapped on itself it was screaming and crying. Well I had my scanner running and I actually heard my address over the scanner! I was wow what is going on here (apartment complex with out 8 residents). Well the call went out of animal torture sounds and the apartment that called in was right above me! So I was tripping out and telling my girlfriend not to give them permission to enter if they knocked and I could actually he More..

  • If ANYONE aims ANY gun at ANY cop - then they are going to DEFEND themselves and probably shoot you. Is there anyone in this world who doesn't know that - surely not!

  • According to a news story:

    The gun Gonzalez was carrying, a CO2.177-caliber pellet pistol, looked like a dangerous firearm, said Detective Jose Treviño, a police spokesman.

    “It has the exact appearance of Glock,” Treviño said ... .

  • Why would you put a spin on it like that, if I'm even reading your misspellings correctly. No other reputable source says he knew it was a pellet gun. Millions of people will hate this man, his life will never be the same, all because he did what he was trained to do. I would have shot too. How could anyone not?

  • I'm sorry but 15 years old in this day and age isn't a kid anymore. I'm sure he played enough GTA4 to realise what would happen if he waved a gun at a cop, real or not. Even if the weapon was a fake it's something you just don't take chances on if you aren't 100 percent sure.

  • Source on where it's suggested the cops knew it was a pellet gun? You made the claim, now back it up.

  • WTF is going on you ask. In the time that it takes to identify whether a gun is real or not you may be dead. The student was apparently brandishing the weapon in a threatening manner which prompted the police to use deadly force. Certainly no officer wants to go home with the thought that he/she killed an unarmed child and I am sure this incident will haunt them the rest of their lives. Ideally it would have been nice if a less than lethal alternative could have been used but when a firearm/ More..

  • Sounds like suicide by cop, not that uncommon.

  • Sounds like the "take him out" was in response to him firing on the cops. That will pretty much guarantee someone a head wound or two.

  • It's a tough scenario, I'm no fan of cops but until your in this situation pretty hard to pass judgement. Poor kid, even more sad is the circumstance that probably led him to this.

  • Kid brought a gun to school a .177 cal and got shot and killed because he wouldn't put it down. No problem here he should have never brought that gun to school or out in school.

  • I saw a picture of the gun the kid was carrying. sure as hell looked like a Glock 9mm to me. Can't blame the police.

    Blame the parents.
