Rylan Fuchs' mother should sue the state and the group home for their sons murder. Seriously.

Glad that a civil settlement was reached. Clearly, the Bart officer was negligent, and a civil settlement is appropriate for the victim's child. However, it is ridiculous that a criminal prosecution is taking place. Obviously, there was no mens rea, no criminal intent, to shoot and kill him. It was simply a negligent, accident, that belongs solely in the civil justice system, not the criminal justice system. The Alameda D.A.'s office needs to get a backbone, and not give in to the mob mentality that is wrongly playing the race card. This was an accident, by a novice, inexperienced police officer. No more, no less.

Gunslinger, why should I (a taxpayer) pay a family of a drug dealer who got killed? I bet if he wasn't selling weed, he'd be alive today. Seriously.
