Good! That child was bad! Even his father stated that he could do nothing with his own son, just before the family retained that lawyer who told him to shut up, or it would ruin their law suit against the city. The entire family has had run-ins with the police. Why can't ghetto people just behave and try to act civilized?

Just because a child is bad, doesn't mean that you kill him! You live in ghetto amongst other individuals, are they all good? I'm sure they aren't, but has anyone gotten shot and killed in "your hood"?

That kids was indeed bad and the evidence clearly shows him as the 1st shooter. Seems to me that if you start shooting, all bets are off and that you stand a likely chance of getting shot at. I hate to see a 14 yr kid shot but I'm glad he was capped before he harmed someone innocent.
