Now there has been a lot of discussion going on about the police officer pulling a gun on a kid. We don't necessarily know the whole situation and what led to this unfortunate event.

There have been a lot of people who have been heated about this recent incident which involved kids and our police officers. Now there was so much controversy about this video and upset a lot of people. Now personally, I think this situation could have been handled differently. It was jaw-dropping to see a cop pull out his gun aiming it at a group of kids. Now, the kids weren't really making the situation any better by mouthing off to the police. In my opinion, I believe the officers should have called for more backup instead of pulling a gun on the kids and the kids should have respect for the authority. If the cop felt he needed to give the kids a scare, he could have used a taser instead of a gun. Of course, some of us are thinking if our parents heard us talk back to a cop like that we would rather go to jail than home! I cannot believe young kids were running their mouth like that at such a young age. First Amendment Strike Team published the footage not too long ago for you to see.

If you believe the officers and kids were both at fault, take the poll below!
