  1. This is a very sad story that we’ve been hearing a lot about here in Texas. I know that the parents of the boy believe that the police acted too quickly. I disagree. No child should bring any kind of weapon to school. Even though it was a pellet, or BB, gun, I don’t think it was easy to see that distinction. It looked like a black pistol. Only when the boy pointed the gun directly at the officers, did they shoot. It’s tragic that this young man lost his life. He should have thought about what he was doing, and what the consequences could be.
