    White Family sues after US teen shot dead during traffic stop



    Washington (AFP) - The parents of a US teenager are suing after their son was shot dead during a police traffic stop, media reports said, as video of the deadly encounter emerged.
    The case comes amid a national debate on the use of force by police in the United States, with white officers often accused of racism. In this case, however, both the officer and the teenager were white.

    Good for them. It should be the call all over America, if the crime is shown to be deadly force by the cops, every family should sue, maybe then they'll get the message quicker!!!

    True, police have the law of deadly force for use on their side. But excessive use of deadly force is often explored to determine if that law was broken, as in this case.

    Nonetheless, White folk tend to go quickly for the money, not so much whether the law was broken or not.

    If the facts hold, this case will be thrown out
