Teen Shot by LAPD Was Dropped From Explorer Program
April 13, 2012
The 19-year-old who died in a hail of Los Angeles Police gunfire on the Hollywood (101) Freeway had wanted to join the department, but was dropped from its Explorer program for disciplinary reasons, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Officers fatally shot Abdul Arian on Thursday in Woodland Hills, after a high-speed pursuit. Arian swerved on the freeway, exited his vehicle, and made weapon-pointed gestures at officers. No gun was recovered from the scene. However, Arian told a 911 dispatcher that he was not afraid of cops and would "pull my gun out on them."

Please City/County of Los Angeles, do not settle for a dime! Maybe even counter sue the parents for lying and the trauma that their kid inflicted on the officers.

Been there, done that. AND, the US Supreme court has a past ruling indicating when a suspect behaves and states he has a gun and the police shoot that suspect then the suspect caused the mess and the police don't need to wait until fired upon.
On the other hand, if police kill my son I'm going to sue them also.
