Agreed. But it isn't so much that the Airsoft guns were owned, or even lent, it's how they were handled after that raises my suspicions. I saw the parents on TV saying how they couldn't believe their son was shot just because the police made a mistake in identifying the guns. The police didn't make a mistake, the boy did, perhaps more than one. How did a thirteen year old kid make so many bad decisions leading to his death by a peace officer? How was there absolutely no due diligence, or common sense involved? I feel bad for the family, but worse for the officer (if he followed appropriate procedure). As stated above, he may have issues doing his job, dealing with his family, sleeping, etc, for the rest of his life.
