This is basically my point here. If he'd done what he was told he would be breathing, but somehow he felt that doing what he wanted was more important than what the screaming policemen were saying. I'm a little confused about where you get your feelings about the police from. They are humans, they make mistakes, they get scared and they are not here to do your parenting for you. In the U.K. according to law you are culpable at the age of 10 so by that reasoning the law states that he should have known better. But what I think needs to change still is that people need to remember to respect the police. All this nonsense about '**** the police' etc is just causing problems. I know my friends at school really started to disrespect them around the age they wanted to start drinking underage and smoke pot, but that mentality needs to change.
