Police shooting video of Adam Toledo released, appears to drop gun before being shot
Article with video
quote:

A 13-year-old boy appears to have dropped a gun and raised his hands just before a Chicago police officer fatally shot him last month after a foot chase in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side. Video footage of the shooting, released Thursday by the Civilian Office of Police Accountability, shows a CPD officer shooting Adam Toledo once in the chest around 2:30 a.m. on March 29 in the alley of the 2300 block of South Spaulding. Adam was shot after he and another man, 21-year-old Ruben Roman, allegedly ran away from police who were responding to the area for a report of gunfire.

But now, in response to a WGN Investigates inquiry, the state’s attorney’s office says the detail about Adam having a gun in his hand the moment he was shot was inaccurate. “An attorney who works in this office failed to fully inform himself before speaking in court,” Sarah Sinovic, a spokesperson for Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, told WGN Investigates Thursday.

Things you can’t do while black:

Committing attempted murder
Running from police them pointing a gun at them.

The oppression must stop

Who cares? The fricker tried to kill someone. The world is a better place with him dead.

Give credit where credit’s due. Chicago mayor walking a tightrope here without deflecting blame or provoking outrage.

Don’t care. When are we going to scrutinize all the white people shot and killed by police?

Yeah that's a tough spot for the cop. The kid may be dropping the gun but he's also raising his hands at the same time (potentially to shoot). The cop can't assume he's about to drop the gun.

At that moment, the kid should have tossed the gun away from himself while telling the cop that's what he's doing.

Don’t shoot at cars and then aim at a police officer and you won’t die simple

Kid shouldn't have been running in the first place. He isn't even the one who did the shooting (his friend did). Kid picked up the gun and began running.

Oh I'm with you. I meant at that last moment before he stopped running and raised his hands. He should have stopped running, kept his back to the cop, tossed the gun on the ground while telling the cop that's what he's doing. Don't turn to face the cop while raising your hands when he knows you have a gun.

He was 13 and a special needs kid. While I agree with what he should/could have done do you really expect a 13 year old special needs kid to have that thought process?
