“Where have we gone wrong, that a 12-year-old and a 14-year-old think it’s OK to take on law enforcement?” Chitwood said. “What the hell is the Department of Juvenile Justice doing, sending these kids to places that can’t handle them?”

Chitwood further used the incident to berate juvenile restorative justice in the state, a type of community-focused justice system in which the emphasis is on repairing harm done rather than punishing the offender with isolation. The sheriff suggested that those who support it should do a ride-along with cops.

Too bad this piece of shit wasn't shot.

I found it quite frustrating that he did not consider the absolute idiocy of a homeowner who leaves firearms and ammunition unattended and not in a safe. And why would he need an ak47 in the first place if not to kill some cops?

Then they also don't bring up why the girl would literally keep going even after being shot twice... I can only assume she has been the victim of abuse.

“You’ll have people out there that think little Johnny, if he got his head patted on a little more more, this wouldn't happen, or if Janie if someone hugged her and kissed her, this wouldn’t have happened,” Chitwood said. “They don’t want to understand that there’s evil in the world, and I can’t explain why a 12- or 14-year-old are evil.”

Cops don't have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to judging the innate "evil" in a human being.

I get that they get off on inflicting violence on people who can't really fight back, but you'd think that the guy working for an institution rife with documented evidence and history of corruption and rabid brutality would at least try to be less of a moral absolutist.

Cops fail to handle two kids, calls them killers to save whatever face they have, after what can only be considered an amazing display of police ineptitude, which only makes them worse. Gotta love it when cops can't own up to their own failures.
