"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.
Glad for the oops..I was going to let you have it ;-).
Did you read the story? They weren't running from cops and pointing guns. They were horsing around in an apartment complex parking lot, one of them had a toy gun. The cops jumped out of their car and drew down on two kids who were playing ... playing, not pointing toy guns at the cops or running from the cops ...
I'm not faulting the cops, necessarily, but to criticize this kid or his family because he was outside playing is foolish.
12 years old is not too young to be outside playing at 10 p.m. on a Friday night in the summer when you're spending the night at your cousin's house.
Read the story, it doesn't support your claim that they were "running from cops and pointing guns"
Kids play with toy guns, they yell when they're outside. There's nothing wrong with it ... unless you're one of those who thinks toy guns should be banned.
