I agree. It is tragic but why was he running the streets at 10pm.
Because 12 year old kids should be allowed to enjoy themselves? This wasn't "the streets" ... it's an apartment complex parking lot. What you said - "running the streets" - clearly implies the kid was doing something wrong, but all evidence from the story suggests he was just horsing around with his cousin.
I'm sure if this had been a nice suburban neighborhood and the kid's name was Kevin, you'd be outraged that the police shot him, even at 10 p.m.
ah so running in streets now carries death penalty with no trial needed nice to know if i go jogging at night.
