If the title didn't warn you, I'm about to make a joke out of something serious. If that bothers you, leave now.....

We all heard about the 15 year old with the pellet gun at school this week being shot by a SWAT team, right. Well I saw this headline tonight:

And all I could think when I read it was "he was before he got shot if he pulled a gun on a SWAT team."
I warned you, don't bitch.

Alls I can say is you're right!! The kid was brain dead if he pulled a gun on a Swat team.

A-freakin-men brah... he apparently had a deathwish...

I had the same thoughts, I even think that the cop who shot him deserves a metal...

An airgun looks just like a "real" gun as far as I know. If I were on of the SWAT people I'd have to shoot. BTW, a pellet in the eye can blind and even kill if it penetrates the brain. I had a Chinese-made pellet gun as a child and I wouldn't have like being holed by it, I can tell you.

LMC- Evidently he was depressed and suicidal, he chose an interesting, but usually effective way of committing suicide.

LP - He should get one.

Peakah - Or even a medal :)

Sinister- It was a pellet gun evidently fashioned after a 9mm handgun. So ya, that cop probably in the 1/2 second he had to make a decsion couldn't tell.

The bad thing is that cop will never get over shooting that kid . That's who I feel for , him and his family .

Wally, you are right on that one. Even cops who've had to shoot adults in very justifiable circumstances admit that they think about it forever. With a kid as the target I'm sure it will be worse for the guy.

LP is right. He should get a Darwin Award. Pulling a gun on armed police officers is nothing more than a messy way to commit suicide.

It is tragic, but you can't play around with guns like that.

I read about this kid and my first thought was where were the parents?? And I don't mean at the time of the shooting. This kid had had problems for years.
And excuse me, but a pellet gun is still a gun. Just ask all the squirrels that have gone to squirrel heaven because of being shot by one.
My heart goes out to the Swat team member - no police officer ever wants to shoot a kid.

YankeeMom, you do have to wonder, and the media doesn't do a good job of telling us, if he was being treated.

SR- A retired cop I know said they called it "suicide by proxy" when it happened to a few guys on the force where I group.

Yeah, I'm with you and waiting for the MSM to make this some sort of federal case again authorities.

Nice to be back online.

Nice to have you back online 'Bama. As far as the MSM on this one, they've been almost eerie in their silence in regards to the cop.
