Yet another reminder why kids shouldn't be playing with these things unsupervised.

Not surprised they opened fire especially only a few days after the shooting in Nevada.

I can't help but think that they didn't have to shoot the kid. Kid shouldn't have been brandishing in public.

Agree, but look at the cheap chintzy airsoft gun he used. It was obviously not real.

Must of been on high threat alert based on Coach's post.

The deputies called for backup and repeatedly ordered the boy to drop the gun before firing several rounds from their handguns, police said.
Yeah, that AK-47 in the photo looks legit from a distance, so it's understandable. Silly kid should of had a it concealed.

There has been so many school shootings involving kids that I don't think they want to take any chances anymore.

And how would you know it's fake from a distance?

Another question would be, what was the likelihood that a real firearm was present? If it was low, which I think it was, then the cop was too fast to fire. Maybe that cop didn't think the chances were low, and under stress shot too fast. We weren't there.

I completely undestand the airsoft gun would have looked like a real fire arm especially in the distance, but I think the police officer could have waited, at lesast until the weapon had started to be raised towards him before he shot. To me it seems as though the event happened really quickly from the boy being asked to drop the weapon then being shot. But at the same time he was brandishing what looked like a resal firearm in public.

As for the sghooting in Nevada the child shooter seems to have known what he was doing, it doesn't seem like one of those "a kid finds his dads gun and shows his buddies", the main reason being becasue he took his own life after shooting the teacher and wounding others.

Social Darwinism...

if it looks real, you will be treated like its real...

....

the only thing that sucks about the whole thing is not too long ago the state of California had it in for airsoft, and this doesnt help.

I think the guy who shot the boy must go to jail. He should have make sure 10 times that this is a real firearm, and even then he could just shot the boy's leg, just to immobilize him.
With guns so popular in States they can't shot people dead on a sight just because they carry something that looks like a real firearm. And this was just a kid, 13 year old, this shoud have been obvious to see.
And I am wondering, the gun should have orange flashhider, this is the law in states, is it not? So it was probably clear that this was not a real firearm.
