One more case of shooting of a black teenage boy by an off duty white cop has led to an outrage in the streets of St. Louis. The shoot out of a black teen a few days back in Ferguson hasn’t cooled off yet, when another such incident emerged. According to St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson, the black teen tried to fled when was being approached by the white cop. The chase led the officer to shoot, who fired 17 shots at the teenager. The deceased’s cousin told the reporters that the suspect was holding a sandwich in his hand which was misjudged by the cop. Thinking that the teenager was armed he opened fire on him killing the teenager boy.
