Alas I was too late in the season for Kew’s lilies to get a truly crisp shot, but this was at the aquatic garden a couple of weeks ago. Leaning over the low wall as far as possible stretching out as much as possible haha Kew don’t make it easy!
Here is a video of the actual shooting. **WARNING** it’s a bit graphic.
Okay , yes the child may have had a potentially lethal weapon, however ITS A FUCKING CHILD. The police could have at least tried confronting the kid. COPS HAVE BULLET VESTS FOR CHRIST SAKES. It’s a 12 year old boy against a grown ,trained police officer. You DO NOT shoot someone just for having a weapon. We have even seen in school shootings and such, where about 5 police confront a shooter and still do not shoot. But when it comes to a 12 year old African American boy it’s different ,right? Yet “it’s not about race” ..
