25. Having never been a boy---

But as the mother of two boys, how difficult is it to "Knock" that orange plastic tip off???? Was the TOY made in the USA? I only remember one USA company that advertised it's product as "indestructible" - Timex!! How many times does the toy have to be dropped??? How many times does it have to be "banged" against the door frame??
I think sometimes we're forgetting what it's like to be a child, which is such a shame. We are holding them to adult standards - that adults can't meet themselves.
The police told him to "drop the weapon and put his hands up". Imagine the terror of being yelled at by the police, our children have been watching the news reports, old style and new style media, so they are aware of the deathly danger the police pose to young people, especially young men - red, yellow, brown, black and white. A lot of the responses here are from adults who are in a state of terror and panic, making a speech in front of a live audience in public. Stop this is nonsense.
If we as adults can't deal with children, maybe we shouldn't have occupations where we must come, the horror, into contact with them - ever!!!
