After reports of an armed robbery, a police officer shot and killed 13-year-old Tyree King. The officer claimed King pointed a gun at him, but all he had was a toy BB gun.
Here are 5 tweets that show everything wrong with his death.
For the idiots blaming #TyreeKing for his death, he is a child. Children "play". Kids don't think like adults. And, COPS LIE ALL THE TIME.

Cops use all kinds of methods to disarm people instead of killing them. They could've done the same for Tyree. #TyreeKing

So its OK for open carry assault rifles, but #TyreeKing with a BB gun is just too much for cops to handle. He was just a boy with a toy.

4) just so many ways that this could have gone down tht don't result in another extrajudicial police taking of a young Black life #tyreeking
