As I opined in Part I, timing is everything.
Like it or not, most would agree with Holy Scripture when the observation is made there is a “time to kill.” At least the police of the City of Atlanta agree.
When officers forced their way into home, they found the woman seated in a chair and stabbing the child, according to Carlos Campos, police spokesman. Hines was ordered to drop the weapon, but did not, so officers fired several shots at the woman, police said.
Seems like a mother, one Carulus Hines was performing a post-partum abortion on her 243 week old fetus. As happens with so many abortions, this one was botched, resulting in the death of both mother and her born child.
So draw your own conclusions and make your own inferences. But wouldn’t it be interesting if police in the City of Atlanta adopted, how would you say, a more consistent approach?
Pay particular attention to the video at about 1:58, when the police official observes “It appears that the officers were responding to save the life of the young child.”
I’m just sayin’.
