FILE — Sylvia Perkins, left, mother of Bobby Moore III, listens as her attorney Michael J. Laux answers questions in this 2015 file photo.

A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis heard half an hour’s worth of oral arguments last week about whether Little Rock and a former police chief should be tried by a federal jury on liability questions in the 2012 death of a boy who was shot and killed by an officer.

One can tell by the panel on this case and the questions asked that the judgment will likely be affirmed.

While I know justice is supposed to be blind, I still find it sort of "unjust" that the mother is awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars is damaging for what — raising a juvenile delinquent who is out in the wee hours committing crimes to which a police officer has to investigate in the dark, not knowing if some feral youth with a stolen Glock is going to light him up. We used to say, "It's 10 p.m., do you know where your children are?" "Mom" apparently did not.

If the kid had been obeying the law he would still be alive-mother should have brought kid up to obey law/not to defy police-no $ to her

Wonder why no one refers to him as "Weedy" or was it "Lil' Weedy",
anymore? I guess mom is still looking for her pot of gold. To bad she
didn't put the same effort into raising her son as she is into this lawsuit, if so maybe he would still be around.
