when bad guys use a gun they are not thinking rationally. This kid had all these armed cops around him.
Yet he tried to pull a gun and shoot them.
1. they knew who he was.
2. he was out gunned.

Yet he still tried to kill them. (he almost shot his friends.)
Rumor was the officers shot and kill an unarmed Black boy.

Threats were coming in because of this rumor.

Video of gun has been released

An Arkansas 17-year-old who was a passenger in a car stopped for speeding early Sunday is seen pulling a gun and firing at officers before he was killed by police, a newly released dashcam video shows. North Little Rock police released the 5-minute video on Wednesday that showed when officers pulled over the vehicle for speeding and a headlight violation. Charles Smith was a rear-seat passenger.
“Get your (expletive) hand out,” one officer told Smith, whose hands were out of the camera’s view. The officer then yelled, “It’s a (expletive) gun.”
The video then shows Smith pointing a handgun at officers, cocking it while his right hand is pinned against the curb, firing it and then cocking it again.
The police officers opened fire in response, killing the teenager.

Time will tell.

Another sad case of a nessesary cop reaction. All that teen had to do was comply with law enforcement.  Same 'ole story, just different actors.

This doesn't surprise me. I have recently been watching a series on NETFLIX about the underground; gun running, gangs, drugs, prostitution, illegal alcohol, and then some.

The mentality and lack of morality of people in the "under world" is beyond belief.  The level of callousness is amazing - especially toward those who are not part of whatever "family" they belong to.  However, even opposing rival gangs come together for a common cause at times. It is unfortunate that this seventeen year old's life came to an end, but I can't say that it was undeserving. In doing what the officers had to do, they probably saved some innocent soul's life at a later time.

Oh, we could on and on about this!
What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.
