    Stupid news report

    14-Year-Old Dead After Police-Involved Shooting

    (KSDK) - A 14-year-old boy is dead after being shot by a St. Louis police officer.

    The victim is identified by his grandmother as Jeremy Robinson.Advertisement



    There are conflicting reports as to what led to the fatal shooting near the intersection of Greer and Belt Avenues on the city's north side.

    St. Louis Police Chief Joe Mokwa said officers saw Robinson in the passenger seat of a van being driven at a high rate of speed through a residential neighborhood.

    Mokwa said the driver of the van forced a patrol car on a sidewalk to avoid being hit. At that point, police began pursuing the vehicle.

    The van crashed into a tree. Robinson and the driver fled on foot.

    Neighbors said police ordered Robinson to the ground and shot him twice before placing a .45 caliber handgun on him and shooting him four more times. Police said Robinson had the gun on him before being shot.

    The driver of the van is still at-large.

    The officer who shot Robinson has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.


    Who would believe this story? I hate the media.

    long gone, just as is accurate reporting.

    The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
    on his wearing his sidearm. "Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you
    expecting trouble?" "No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have
    brought my rifle."
    (just stole this one hope you don't mind)

    it is just that they know so much that isn't so.

    They get to hide behind the "but that's what the neighbors said" shield. I'd be willing to bet that under normal circumstances, the media wouldn't ask those neighbors for directions, let alone anything that may be important. And of course the neighbors saw it as a way of attacking the police. Don't you just love neighborhoods like that?

    Man I thought I was the only one that dropped a crapload on a .45 from a dealer on the street as a toss gun. Then carry it on me every day including in a foot pursuit just for the chance that I may shoot someone and need to drop it.

    FYI dum ass reporter, if the kid was shot lying on the ground there would be proof of that. whats the chances that they would say in the report when it comes out....oooops sorry to the officer we said shot a kid unarmed lying on the ground.
