Not the WHOLE story.
29 June 2019 | by Michele7169See all my reviews

Honestly..this police officer should have been fired long before this incident took place. He had wayyy to many complaints of abuse of authority to still be on the street. But what angers me about these stories is that they clump ALL police officers in the same bubble when MOST police officers are good people who risk their lives daily. It's like saying EVERY doctor sucks because one had bad bedside manner. It's stupid! The other thing that angers me is the fact that they call this 17 year old "just a kid" who wanted to make people smile. Hello! He was breaking into cars that night and wielding a KNIFE! Not saying he deserved to die...I'm saying he was not an innocent child. If you are going to give the background of the officer....give the background of the MAN he shot!! It's dishonest!!
