    You know what would have saved the kid? Not being out at 2:30 am with a gun in your hand (what 13 year old is even out at that night anyways?)

    My parents would have killed me if I was out that late when I was that Young
    The difference is your parents killing you would have been metaphorical whereas this kids death is very real.

    I donít think that because the kid commits a crime that absolves police of their behavior. Do you?

    Putting your hands in the air is a universal sign of surrender. The reason it is so is because when someone's has their hands raised in the air, they are not a threat.

    This kid was shot when he was standing with his hands in the air, surrendering to the cop.

    The question is, who are they protecting. Generally speaking, a 13 year old white kid who committed a crime is looked at very differently than a 13 year old black kid. White america looks at one and says oh, hes just a kid, dont be so harsh on him, then they look at the other and want to try him as an adult.

    This is subconscious programming, rooted in racist american history, which needs to change.

    Again youíre talking about a split second. In sports world this is like when people go after the refs for making an awful call when in real time it was a bang bang play and they got to see it in slow motion. In this case consequences are obviously more severe and deadly than a blown call but itís still a judgement they had to make in a split second.

    Iím sure if the cop knew he dropped the weapon that he wouldnít have shot but it happened so quick that he didnít have much time to react

    Despite my prior posts I agree with you and Spliff that it was a very tough situation. This one is not that clear cut and I'm by no means saying the officer's actions are inexcusable or incomprehensible. It was a very tough situation for everyone involved.

I don't know exactly what happened leading up to this encounter but I have watched the video.

    Why are you only concerned about the mistakes the person who got shot made in that same split second (with no training to fall back on)?

    So the cop asks to see his hands, he shows his hands and gets shot. This is obviously not the first incident of someone being shot for doing what was asked. So donít comply get shot. Comply get shot. Wtf are they supposed to do?

    what is Kim Potter's racist history?

    what did Daunte Wright do in this incident?

    did you see the warrant and DW's history?
    Youíre just absolutely willfully ignorant. You constantly make excuses to justify these actions time and time again. And now surprisingly doing it again.

    Not be out shooting a gun at 230 in the morning in a place that is known for people shooting people at 230 in the morning.

    Here we go, making the cops judge, jury, and executioner.

    With all the talk about gun control from the left etc itís funny how you arenít asking why a 13 year old had a loaded gun on him in the first place.

    Should the parents be charged for letting him get his hands on it? Or does this only count for mass white shooters parents?

    Agreed. Sad all the way around. I just hate how people are like he had his hands up and didnít have a weapon! True, but he also had a weapon in his hands a tenth of a second earlier right when he turned around. Itís entirely possible the cop didnít see him ditch it when he had his back turned away from him. First, he pretty much hid the gun when he ditched it and then he turns around.

    And itís dark out and probably was hard to see for the cop

    Anyone know if the gun was in his hand or his pocket for most of the chase?
