‘Kids with guns’ — 2 incidents end differently
Two brothers were playing together in a park outside Cleveland when the police rolled up. It seems someone living nearby thought the two were acting a bit odd and called 911.
It was like déjà-vu all over again. The two brothers, ages 12 and 15, were playing near a park pavilion – they were black and had weapons. Does this sound familiar at all?
Does it not sound like virtually the same scene set up in the Tamir Rice shooting? In 2014 (hard to believe it’s been two years), the scene was virtually identical: a park in Cleveland, young black kid, playing near a pavilion, toy pistol. The only thing different was the outcome.
