Police said they were called to a home in Glendale Friday night with a report of a boy who had threatened people with a weapon. The young man reportedly ran and was shot by an officer after being pursued by police.
The childs mother, Golda Barton, told KUTV-TV that her son has autism and she had called police because he was having a breakdown and needed a crisis intervention team.
Barton claimed she told police her son was unarmed and warned them that he did not know how to regulate his behavior.
A few minutes after two officers who had arrived went through the front door of the home, Barton said she heard an order to get on the ground" and several gunshots.

Police aren’t social workers, at least not yet.
Usually the state or county will have some crisis hotline to call.
Aren’t they trained t handle EDPs? (Not that this young man was an EDP)
Must be an autistic black Utahan kid because police never shoot non-blacks.
When you can’t handle your 13 year-old, Heaven help you.
More than one person has posted that there isn't a situation so bad that calling the cops can't make it worse.JBT Ping list

“report of a boy who had threatened people with a weapon. The young man reportedly ran and was shot by an officer after being pursued by police.”
Some of these “autistic” boys are complete psychopath terrors.
Unarmed? Throwing a tantrum?
Don’t call the cops.
Well, at least the kid is white, thankfully.
When police shoot unarmed white people towns do not burn.
Maybe next time mom will rethink about those who she asks for help.
“More than one person has posted that there isn’t a situation so bad that calling the cops can’t make it worse.”
At best that’s clever but empty rhetoric.
White lives don’t matter.

Autism can result in very out of control behavior and not all 13 year olds are small in stature.
Worst thing you can do is call the cops in most cases in a domestic setting.
Emotionally Disturbed Person
It definitely suits BLM just fine.
You should never call the police except...well, never.
A friend is fond of saying, “No situation is so bad it can’t be made worse by calling the police.”
Surely the mother had to deal with this issue a number of times. Her method was to call the cops? This would be like calling a plumber to do your gardening. A friend has a daughter with his first wife who has severe developmental issues. The daughter is also as strong as most men her size. It takes extreme patience and work to keep the daughter on an even keel. Every time the ex-wife had the daughter she called the cops and tried to have the daughter Backer-acted.
After numerous incidents the husband got sole custody over the daughter and can legally keep the daughter away from the mother. But this went on for years before a judge finally said, “Okay, I see what’s going on here.”
