    Bad: Google Street view from Jacksonville FL (kid running with gun)

    Not sure if this link works. But I just found this on google street view about a mile south from my house:

    Streetview Jacksonville, FL 32206 - Google Maps

    If the link doesn't work:
    - search for 1418 Jefferson Street
    - turn to look for the two floor appartment building... look for the kid running in the white shirt
    - you may have to go one frame "north" to see it.

    Appears the kid is running with a handgun. Now I know they are not supposed to run with sissors... but handguns? Could also be a trick of light and shadow. It is only visible in this one frame.

    This appartment building is a known hotbed of drug activity.

    Same here, but is it a toy or real. I can see how in the heat of the moment a LEO can look at that and draw on them.

    From the position of his body - specifically the rotation of his torso with the left side leading as he runs - I would be more inclined to believe it's his left arm, motion blur and shadows that make it look like he is holding a gun. He is mid-stride and his left arm is moving forward as his right moves back.

    I thought the same thing. Could be airsoft or toy.

    Maybe he was running from the Google car, have you seen one? It is a regular car with a camera strapped to the roof, kinda spooky looking in a black helicopter kinda way.

    I was freaked out when I first saw my house on Street View, then sad because they took the picture with my truck out front (man, I miss that truck).

    The thing is, that in front of this building, it wouldn't surprise me at all. They had a spree of shootings there a few months ago (even an Ice Cream truck driver was shot by some juveniles... ). Kids with a gun just "fits" that area. Sort of funny that the Google Streetview truck hit that image. Oh... and the Street view ends a bit north of this area that gets very bad.

    I'm a skeptic, kids real young, looks like his left hand or shadow, but I definitely would do a double take on him.

    It sort of looks like a gun, but I don't think it is...probably the other arm and a blur...
    The other individuals both down the street, and across the street don't seem too alarmed, and with street smarts...they would either see the gun or know the kid...they seem unmoved.
