"They were just cruising behind us without no lights, so that’s when we got down there and we came around and they had their lights on, they cut them on and they cut them off,” Amari said. “And then a car got in front of me and they got right there.”

The car then arrived to their neighborhood, where the three young children say their two older brothers told them to get out of the and go find their father.

“They let us out because they were scared so that was going to happen to us, so we got out and we started running toward the house and they just started shooting,” Amari said.

Goodman says he looked out the back door and saw three of his children, ages 9, 12 and 14, running from the police. He says he heard gunshots, then ran and found his 15 and 16-year-old sons on the ground.

5. One of the officers had to employ his "wide stance" after one of the kids was handcuffed.



Quick thinking on his part.

2. Being teenagers while black. It never stops. The video is disturbing.

How stupid can cops be, shooting at a car filled with teens and kids, then shooting at the kids after they ran to get their father. Don't these idiots still not realize there are such things as cell phones with video capability, and black people have them too to show bullet holes in the car and them accelerating a nothing of an incident in to police abuse?

It's just appalling how stupid racists can be.

3. something fishy here

young people don't always make the right moves when scares. Neither do the police which is the norm when it comes to black males, any age. Tamir Rice was 11 years old when shot down by Cincinnati police.

4. What charges are the boys facing?

This report says nothing about that.

Curious...

7. The first cop claims there was a traffic violation. The shooter cop claims the teen

driving the car (the 16-year-old) drove toward him as he approached the car from the front. They also claim the 15-year-old struggled with the first cop.

So I assume they charged both with assaulting a cop and the 16-year-old with a traffic violation.

I also assume the cops are lying and the real "crime" is being black.

8. From a CNN article...

"The 16-year-old was arrested for possession of a handgun by a person under 18, reckless driving, a stop sign violation, aggravated assault on a police officer, and driving with no driver's license, the Waycross Police news release said.

The 15-year-old was charged with possession of a handgun by a person under 18, obstruction of an officer (felony), and removal or attempt to remove firearm from an officer, according to the Waycross Police release."
