I have to say this is probably the saddest story I have heard yet.
In case you didn't know, a Florida eighth grader brought a pellet gun to school, that looked like a semi-automatic handgun. Well he reportedly pointed a gun at a deputy, and the chase began.
Officials stated that they tried to negoiate with him, but to no avail.
So they "took him out" and the story broke a few minutes ago that he had died.

But I'm Curious, how hard did they try to negotiate, I mean he's in Middle School, how hard is it to trick an eighth grader? Who all did they bring in to negoiate, a local police officer? Or did they bring a child psychologist? When an obviously troubled kid risks, not only his own life, but the lives of other students and teachers, It's a big deal. And I heard nothing about who tried to negotiate with him. And isn't it about 9 times out of 10, that students like this one, tell somebody that they are bringing a gun to school? And it's the SWAT team, trained professionals, isn't there some way to tell the difference between a semi-automatic handgun, and a pellet-gun look-a-like?

Just curious...
