Police released over 17 minutes of body camera footage and the recordings of two 911 calls.
The body camera footage shows the officer pointing his weapon at the boys, telling them repeatedly to “get your hands up.” He can be heard saying, “Now, listen to me so you don’t get hurt. Don’t move. Don’t move. Just relax. Please, I don’t want to hurt one of ya’ll… Young man, don’t move.”
“Why does a guy think that one of ya’ll has a gun?” the officer asks.
The officer radios for back-up as a crowd of passersby begin to gather around him.

That’s when the cellphone video recorded by Shanelle Ladd begins

People can be heard shouting at the officer, “Don’t shoot… Don’t Shoot.” One person asks, “They are kids … What did they do?"
"Why you got a gun out?" someone shouts.
"Because I'm being safe," the officer responds.
Another cries out, "This is too much… They babies."
Two officers are seen patting down the five boys. The department said officers brought the boys back to the gas station, where they viewed surveillance footage that showed the teens were in possession of what looked like a pistol. The boys led officers to where they threw what police confirmed was a BB gun into the bushes. All five were released to their parents and no charges were filed.
Police also released photos of the BB gun.

A separate press conference was held with some of the boys and their family members on Tuesday, where they called for several police reforms and for the officer involved in the incident to be fired.


so the parents want the cops to be fired for doing their job correctly ? nothing about their children stealing from a store while showing a "gun". or the fact that their child could have been killed for carrying a "gun", because their child is a criminal and stupid !!

These privileged people do not want to be held accountable for anything they do. Rob, steal , riot, rape, burn, loot, with privilege they want to be respected for their culture, and laziness, violence and lawlessness. In their eyes the police are always wrong, and any problems that these liberal thugs have, are blamed on others.

Nobody likes cops....till they need one. They are the ones called on to clean up the crap others can't
This whole thing of trying to tie the polices hands is disgraceful and they and their families are the ones who should be marching in the streets.
Maybe someday the thug element will wake up and realize it is a lot less effort to get out and vote than to riot in the street, but when you vote you won't be walking home with a big flat-screen and a shopping bag full of sneakers

Whoever was leading the rioters was smart enough to only hit businesses, if they started beating people in the streets or hitting houses the death toll would make the corona numbers look very pale

This is too much. They want the cop charged for their kid acting like a little thug. I don’t think this a problem our society can fix at the voting booth.

Thank you men and women in blue. You are the ones who put your lives on the line everyday to keep us safe. I don't believe a few bad apples spoil the bunch. There are way more good police officers than bad.

The officer acted exactly how he had to act with the report that the teens may be armed, and the surveillance evidently confirmed that they did in fact have a gun. The officer obviously practiced restraint and deescalated the scene in a professional manner.

These kids were lucky... if they had walked into the wrong store, they could have been shot by the clerk. These kids appear to be fairly young, instead of complaining and calling for firing of the cop... the parents should be dragging those kids out to the wood shed for a good dose of wisdom.
