11-year-old Omari Grant, of Henry County, Ga., found himself staring down a policeman’s gun when he and friends were building a tree fort, the Libertarian Republic said.
According to the report, a neighbor complained that the kids might be cutting trees. Two officers approached the children as they were playing, one with his gun drawn. The cops reportedly used foul language and screamed at them to get on the ground.
“I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Grant said.
No arrests were made and an excessive force complaint was filed against the officer who is reportedly still on the job.
