    This “story” is as fake and phony as it can be. There is no way a kid, or anyone is going to pull a BB gun on the Police. This “He had a gun” story that turns out to be a toy gun has been used by police for decades to justify executing black men. I KNOW cops that carried toy guns to “drop” after they’ve killed a “suspect”. Also, everyone in the “hood” knows, you don’t pull a piece on the cops, because they WILL kill you, so no way this kid pulled a BB gun. NO WAY! This was murder. NOBODY pulls a toy gun on the police! The cops saw some blacks, chased them, they ran, he cornered the kid and executed him and then “dropped” a bb gun.

      Yes, all cops are trigger happy racists. Did you read your comment? And I’ve been surrounded by law enforcement the all my life, no one carries toy guns to plant on victims. LOL.

      Wow, your a true examplee of what a racist POS is. Immediately defend the black kid. Never mind the fact that he was caught committing a felony armmed robbery. You must be a BLM supporter. Which BTW is nothing more than the black version of the KKK. Both groups are just nothing but violent racist,bitches.
