Shootout of a 12yr old African American boy by cops has left many shell shocked, cops suspended till investigation, US

The wounds of the shooting of an unarmed black teenager in the ST Louis suburb of Ferguson is still fresh among the African- American people who are yet waiting for justice. The authorities had been targeted for racism and injustice by the people. The officials were still trying to untangle themselves from this mess when two white cops from Cleveland shot down another 12 yr old African American boy at a playground. After responding to a 911 call, the police officers reached the spot and asked the boy to put down the gun which he was waving at the crowd. It was after the boy disobeyed them that they had to open fire at them. The boy being shot twice by the cops died at the spot. It was only after shooting down the boy did the cops find out that he was actually carrying a toy gun.

Meanwhile the officials have suspended both the officers and following the recording of the 911 call and the footage of the playground an investigation will be held out which would now decide the fate of both the officers as well as of the case. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
