Use of force

I’m watching CNN and everybody is lamenting the fact a 13-year-old kid was shot by a police officer. That begs the question, what was he doing out at 2 a.m. on a school night and carrying a gun? When he was ordered to drop the gun, he did not follow the officer’s directions. As far as I’m concerned, the responsibility does not lie with the police officer, it lies with the parent or parents of this young man.
