I think that the officers/police need to adopt the policy from the military , Do not fire unless fired upon, this will designate who is an enemy 100%. I can tell from the picture that this a toy gun. If you ever held an AK47 you know this is a bulky heavy weapon and not easily carried. The officer missed diagnosed the situation because he was not trained properly.
I feel for the parents for their lose, I played with toy guns all the time never did I have an issue with cops or any law enforcement over it.
This officer now has to live with knowing he gunned downed a child because he couldn't tell a toy from the real thing.
