“Why did they kill him? Why?” she said.
At 3 p.m., two sheriff’s deputies patrolling in the area of Moorland and West Robles avenues observed Lopez walking with what sheriff’s officials said appeared to be some type of rifle.
The deputies called for backup and repeatedly ordered the boy to drop the rifle, Sheriff’s Lt. Dennis O’Leary said in a news release.
At some point after the deputies told Lopez to drop the rifle, they fired several rounds from their handguns at the boy, who was hit multiple times, O’Leary said.
After telling Lopez to move away from the rifle, deputies approached the unresponsive teen as he lay on the ground and handcuffed him before administering first aid and calling for medical assistance, O’Leary said.
I’ve mentioned this dozens of times, but when me and my pals were thirteen – or younger – several of us used to amble down Muncie sidewalks with loaded .22 rifles and .410 shotguns on our shoulders, heading for the nearest woods to shoot at stuff.
The American police state of today would have slaughtered us all.
This story fills me with sick rage, and a strong urge to see dangerous thugs with guns shot down in the street. In pre-emptive self-defense, of course.
We live in a murderous totalitarian police state tyranny. Get it yet? Do you?
