LEO murders schizophrenic kid

So since I seem to be always on the end of defending LEOs

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/01/07/state-investigating-fatal-shooting-mentally-ill-nc-teen-by-officer/

http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/07/justice/north-carolina-teen-killed/

TLDR: Cops are called to a residence by parents to help contain their mentally ill child. First two cops get there and are talking the kid down when third officer arrives. Third officers orders first two to use non lethal force to subdue kid and after he is stunned 3rd officer fires a single shot to the chest killing the kid.

They need to charge the son of a bitch not just put him on administrative leave.

There are so many holes in this story, Swiss Cheese is envious.

 

2 officers are laying on the suspect while he's being tased. But it doesn't affect them.

 

A 3rd officers fires a shot that banks off of a hardwood floor and kills the kid.

 

Someone who arrives after everything is over is the one recounting what happened.

 

And they've already started trying to make a dollar off of it. http://gofundme.com/63c378.

The kid shouldn't have had mental problems

The fact that the parents may be profiting from their child's death is disgusting BUT completely irrelevant.

Why in the hell was the cop's pistol drawn? 3 cops vs a 90lb kid and they need to use deadly force? When at least one officer has already used non lethal force?

Doesn't add up to anything good by my accounting.

I wonder why the shooter had his gun drawn?

This is about as paraphrased as it gets but from what I understand the kids parents story is that the first two officers on the scene had the kid calmed down and the third officer (from Southport) came in and began giving orders and escalated the situation and it led to the tasing and shooting.

 

That shooting officers lawyer has said that he was afraid the kid was going to stab someone with the screwdriver he had and that's why he shot.

 

He said/She said basically and I suspect that is what the investigation is trying to clear up. As long as the other two officers (who have already been cleared) don't try and protect the shooter (assuming he was unjustified) then it ought to come out what happened.

What a freaking mess.

 

I can't figure out why he wasn't handcuffed if they had him subdued.  He made a threat to someones life, his mental state shouldn't matter at that time, he should have been detained.

 

This is weird for sure.

Unless your between the leads you can grab someone all day while they are being tased. My issue is how is the mom going to ask why the cops were using any force on her son. Uh, you called because you were scared for your life of your schizophrenic son with a screwdriver. Something is fishy here though, and I hate to say it but the 3d officer smells guilty.

    • I honestly thought this was going to be a McCaffery thread. 
    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
