    But that's the POINT, if the case goes to trial, AT THE VERY LEAST, there's an attorney(s) who are advocating for the dead kid.

    There was nobody advocating for the dead kid in this case.

    I belive at worst, they'd like to have had the DA ADVOCATE for a prosecution. Which is what would have happened had the kid shot the cop instead.

    There's no-one advocating for the dead kid.

    And again, if you could look at it in a vaccum, then your point would be on point. But it's simply NOT in a vacuum. It's a single incident in a much larger portrait.
