Since when can a young male not pull a gun on a cop without getting shot?

Another innocent boy has been murdered by police in cold blood merely for pulling an identical replica gun on them.

Apparently, the 13-year-old boy was suspected of robbing people in Columbus, Ohio with what police and his victims should have known was just a harmless BB gun -- with a laser sight on it.

The above picture is a replica image of what police say the gun looked like.

I think we can all agree it's an obvious toy we'd feel perfectly safe having pointed at us by random black youths.

From NBC News, "Tyree King, 13, Fatally Shot by Police in Columbus, Ohio":
Police in Columbus, Ohio, were investigating how a 13-year-old boy wanted for questioning Wednesday night in an armed robbery ended up fatally shot by an officer.

The child -- later identified by Columbus police as Tyree King -- had "pulled a gun from his waistband" when officers attempted to take him and another male into custody, the Columbus Division of Police said in a statement. As the encounter unfolded, an officer shot King "multiple times."

The weapon recovered from the scene was determined to be a BB gun with an attached laser sight, Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs said at news conference Thursday morning. She showed a replica image of that BB gun.

"Our officers carry a gun that looks practically identical to this weapon," said Jacobs, adding, "It turns out not to be a firearm, but as you can see, it looks like a firearm that can kill you."
Police were first called to a report of a group of people -- including one armed with a gun -- demanding money at 7:42 p.m. ET.

Officers arriving at the scene saw three people matching the suspects' descriptions around a block away. However, when they attempted to speak with them, two of the males ran away, police said in a statement.

"Officers followed the males to the alley ... and attempted to take them into custody when one suspect pulled a gun from his waistband," police added. "One officer shot and struck the suspect multiple times."
Social justice warriors took to twitter to express their outrage:

Tariq Nasheed, who was heavily retweeted by Baton Rouge cop killer Gavin Eugene Long, blamed "systematic white supremacy" for the shooting:


Since when can a young male not pull a gun on a cop without getting shot?

Clearly, we're living under a system of systemic white supremacy which systematically shoots black kids just for fun.

Here's what some white supremacists had to say on twitter in defense of systemic oppression:

It's 2016, people.

If Black Lives Matter has taught us anything, it's that pointing guns at police and not being shot is a basic human right.
