In 7 times Erica talks about a 13 year old boy who was shot 7 times by a police officer after he raised a fake rifle on the officer. It is a tragedy that this had to end with the death of a young boy. But i believe the police officer had every right to shoot the boy who was of Hispanic decent. The fake rifle looked exactly like a modern AK-47 or a similar Chinese assault rifle. Also the tip of the gun was not pointed red like it should have been to notify anyone if it was a fake rifle. The boy was asked several times to lower the weapon and then continued to raise and aim it at the officer. Who then opened fire.
