Its not about me and my selfishness. I would sacrifice my life for any child. Of course its realistic. Would not sacrifice my life for a child trying to kill me but my legs currently work so i would run or i can think of many things i would do to avoid injury and confident i would succeed and not hav to live with a horrible decision like killing them. It is worth an effort above murder and thats what makes me human. What makes u human?

5 times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't be serious! You are brainwashed i assume but they shot him 5 times. The first one stopped him and a gun is not necessary when fighting against a child with a knife. Tazer? Mace? Um loud yelling would have worked on him. Deadly force in a nondeadly situation.

Yes that is the real story. I live in this neighborhood and my children are, or should say were, friends with this over polite young boy. He had the mentality of a much younger child than his real age but was not stupid or deranged as police and news crews make him sound. Every time he would come to the house he would hug my wife, say hi Mr. "um what should I call you again?" and then kiss the baby on the cheek before going to play. I can not think of any reason to shoot to kill with this boy even if this story is true. He was probably 110 lbs. and definitely a child. I continue to think about my 12 yr. old boy, 10 yr. old girl and 9 yr. old boy who i have to teach to respect the law and the rules when they ask "why did they kill him dad". I am at a loss of words at this point. R.I.P. to our neighborhood friend.
