This Terrifies Me

On what planet do we pull guns on children? This planet.  Who in their right mind saw these kids as a threat? These officers. I’ve watched this clip a few times now and read subsequent articles about the incident and my heart aches. It could be my child or ones I know. I don’t understand how as adults the officers involved didn’t see another way. Are we so scared as people that all innocence is lost? How do we expect our children to grow up to respect and trust authority that has never trusted or respected them?
