    Cleveland boy, 12, shot by officer after reaching for replica handgun
    The child is listed in critical condition after being shot in the torso Saturday afternoon at a playground. A witness called police and said the child was waving the weapon and 'scaring the s--- out of everybody.' Police said the child reached for the weapon in his waistband when approached by police but did not point the airsoft handgun at officers.

    reaching or not.. if a cop sees what he thinks is a gun .. anything other then hands in the air and moving very slowly is going t get your shot

    This is why tablet operating systems suck.

    We just replaced a Samsung 10.1 with a Dell convertible 12" ultrabook running Windows 8.1 because my wife could repeatedly not get links I sent to work. For an extra half pound you get a keyboard and a more well rounded machine.

    Kid was probably on his way to holding up a convenience store, so the police should be commended for preventing a crime

    Does anybody realize what a current-day inner city 12 year old looks like?

    Certainly not like Beaver Cleaver.
