If I'm reading the report correctly, the cops were on their way when this moron disobeyed the 911 operator's instructions, then exited his automobile in order to confront this kid. To me (and, of course, I'm only surmising here based upon years of study in the field of knucklehead behavior), that sounds like an out-of-control imbecile with narcissistic tendencies. It doesn't sound like a casual, "Hey man, what's up?"
Whatever he did led to an escalation ... and that's just plain stupid.
I don't see anywhere in the article that is says he disobeyed a 911 operator and as far as his best Dirty Harry impression.....sounds like he was getting his ass whipped before he shot the kid.
I wholeheartedly agree with the bolded part. Dude is 25, not too smart of an age.
