    Didn't think this was War Room material because instead of a cop killing a black kid a black kid saved ones life and is being hailed as a hero. Nice to see a feel good story for a change.

    Heard this on the radio this morning.

    Kid should've cleaned out his wallet and took the cops gun and blasted his way out of there.







    nah he did the right thing. props to him.











    (it would've been cooler if he did the gun thing though)

    I laughed after reading that he's been arrested multiple times after. I guess he didn't learn his lesson.

    He probably saved himself of being charged with murder somehow.

    When I first saw the title of this story yesterday, I pictured the kid saving the officer from an attack or something. When I saw the video, I'm like really? They're honoring him for that?

    I mean every single person would have done the same thing and it was in his best interest to do what he did. Not to mention what he did wasn't some grand act. He just kicked the door to get someone's attention. Obviously better than doing nothing and having another officer walk in later to see his dead co-worker on the floor with you sitting there, chilling.

    The first member through the cage door looks like the next candidate. A salad every now and then won't kill, fellas.

    What did you expect a handcuffed delinquent kid to do? Houdini himself out of the cuffs and know how to resuscitate someone?

    People with true Anti-social behavior would just watch and not bother risking saving someones life, the boy showed empathy a virtuous human quality. I think that's what is pulling on peoples heart strings here.

    > Oh how nice. A positive story about a black youth.
    > Oh, he was in jail for burglary at the time... and he didn't really do anything.

    Stereotype...reaffirmed.

    Yea, to be honest this doesn't exactly describe a "heroic" action in my eyes.

    Honestly, I did expect him to pull some Houdini shit when I read the title and then I was disappointed that he just did what even an asshole might do and there was nothing remarkable about it. I mean, unless you are a complete psychopath who loves to watch people die, you would try to call for help seeing as somebody is dying right in front of your eyes.
