What World Are We Living in?

leave a comment »

A one year old child was shot and killed today in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn. News 4 reports that the mother and father of the child were walking along the street with the baby in a stroller. The reporter stated that when the shots rang out, the father took off running and only discovered that the child was shot and killed after he returned to the stroller.
What world are we living in when a father would chose to run for cover rather than protect his defenseless child?
Ever get between an animal and her babies? A mother would protect them at all cost.
Then you have Tony Herbert, a community advocate, make a statement that if the father was the intended target, he should have been given a pass because he was with his child.
Really Tony? That’s your advice to the murderer?
I guess all would be ok if the shooter just came back tomorrow when the father was alone.
Unbelievable.

Update: (September 2, 2013)
Channel 4 News tonight reported that the baby’s father, who was the intended target, is not cooperating with police.
What a real fine young upstanding member of his community. His parents did such a good job raising him. They must be so proud.

Lets hope he doesn’t bring any more children into this world.
