This story isn't written in a biased and inflammatory fashion what so ever, "he was a nice boy, all he wanted was to be an airline pilot, and was just getting some skittles for his wittle brother". I'm sure when we hear the other side of the story, things might become just a tad bit more clear. I'm also sure it might explain why the shooter has yet to be charged, police departments aren't that stupid, they know the situation and if there is not just cause there will certainly be a media circus involved.
Other side of the story? Are you ****ing serious. What exactly would it take for the neighborhood watch Commando to have a legitimate reason to shoot the kid?
Did he feel threatened that the kid was going to start throwing skittles on him?
