That is true, but it is obviously a risk, at least for some...

Here, if you want to read about it: How Cleveland Police May Have Botched a 911 Call Just Before Killing Tamir Rice | Mother Jones. According to that article Mendl dispatched the police as a "code 1" (meaning that it was the highest priority level and it needed an immediate response). Like I have been saying; the dispatcher fired the shot. It was just in her communication and not pulling the trigger.

That article does not support the claims that were made.

If the kid would have not been pointing a gun and NOT had the cops called....he would still be alive, right?

Which claims? Maybe this one will help: Cleveland dispatcher who handled Tamir Rice shooting has previous arrest, was fired from previous dispatcher job | cleveland.com.

Thank you. This points out even more incompetence on the part of the force overall does it not? I do not know of any crime she could be charged with. Do you? Present it and it can be discussed.

There is risk in many things that kids do but we depend on police to act professionally, I don't see how anyone can defend the actions of the police.

It's not about that. It's about taking precautions to ensure the safety of children. Police do make mistakes. Not all are bad and they face a lot of danger, especially in certain places. Parents have to be more careful.
