You sir are an ass.
I never implied, you however inferred that I meant he was doing something wrong.
He was 12 and it was 10pm, why wasn’t he home with his family?

I am pretty sure I used the phrase “tragic”. It is a horrible price to pay for this young man, yet it does not answer the question why was he out at 10pm? Where was his family?

Because 12 year old kids should be allowed to enjoy themselves?

"ENJOY themselves"?!! by running from cops and pointing guns (later found to be fake) at cops?

Sure sounds like you are a couple of fries short of a happy meal.

Maybe, but on the forum we're supposed to stay away from personal attacks, so I won't tell you what you are.

"Running the streets" has the implication that the kids were doing something wrong. Argue against it all day, but it does.

yet it does not answer the question why was he out at 10pm? Where was his family?

10 p.m. is not too late for a 12 year old to be outside playing with his cousin on a Friday in the summer. Either you don't have kids this age or your kids think you're an ass.

Three days ago I called the local PD line to ask if childrens handguns today had magazines that go in the handle such as a Glock 17 or a SIG-Sauer P226 does. The dispatcher didn’t know. So I asked her to send an officer around because I had some youngsters about 10 or 12 playing with such a toy or maybe a weapon on the street. He was showing it to some other kids and I had no idea what their intentions were. One black gun and four young kids is what I saw.

Nobody was wearing a visible holster like we did when I used to play cowboys and indians with Moses and that gang who later built the Ark.

Fifteen minutes later a cop came by and I explained what I’d seen. He said it was probably an Airsoft, whatever that is, but he’d go locate the kid and check it out. Sure enough that’s what it was but from 50 feet away I couldn’t tell the difference.

If my wife had been out in front of the house I would have sent her inside immediately because of my lack of ability to determine what it was the kid had, a weapon or a toy. If the kid had aimed it at her back as she was walkiing towards the house, I hate to think what the results would have been.
