Background. Christmas Eve, there was a shooting at a local teen hangout.
Police investigating the shooting saw these two kids, and tried to question them.
Area citizens interviewed by the TV station were more than pissed.
So much for keeping the "bad guys" off the streets.
The officer they interviewed on TV last night went to far as to say that even if the kid
had pointed the gun at an officer, they probably wouldn't have locked him up.
(I figure that meant they would have just shot him dead and been done with it)
Thats incredible. Figures it would be back east. A minor can posses a weapon here, including a handgun so long as he is not commiting a crime or carrying it concealed.
This is Davenport, Iowa.
Not out east.
We are not allowed to carry a weapon.
