I don't think there is much of anything behind the outrage about the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson but THIS is inexcusable:
Video: Cop shot boy seconds after encountering him
By MARK GILLISPIE 2 hours ago

CLEVELAND (AP) — The police officer who fatally shot a 12-year-old boy carrying a pellet gun fired within 1½ to 2 seconds of pulling up in his cruiser, police said Wednesday. During those few moments, he ordered the youngster three times to put up his hands, they said.
The video is also up at ABC News.

UPDATE: WKYC has provided a slow-motion version of the video and now it seems the cop in the front passeger's seat got out & shot Tamir Rice immediately.  I've embedded the clip below -
