Usa: shock in Utah, police shoot an autistic thirteen year old – North America

Shock in Utah. A woman called the police because her autistic son was having a seizure and was screaming at the top of his voice. The officers who arrived on the scene ordered the 13-year-old boy to lie down and then, unheard, opened fire, hitting the teenager several times.
White 13-year-old Linden Cameron is now hospitalized with injuries to his shoulder, ankles, intestines and bladder. The mother, Golda Barton, tells local media that she called 911 last Friday (the 113th American) for help as her son was having a crisis. In fact, the woman had recently returned home from the first day of work in more than a year and found her son in the throes of a crisis of separation anxiety.
“He wasn’t armed, he was trying to get attention. The agents should have used a minimum of force,” says Golda Barton. The agents instead showed up at the door and after telling him to lie down on the ground for five minutes, they opened fire.
