….and maybe the decade.
Turlock, CA — A 27-year-old man was killed by a police officer as he punched and stomped a toddler to death on a dark country road, the authorities said.
[According to Sheriff’s Deputy Royjindar Singh,] the man’s truck caught the attention of a couple at 10:13 p.m. because it was stopped in the two-lane road facing the wrong direction. As the couple got closer, they saw the man beating the toddler and throwing him on the ground, Deputy Singh said. Two or three other cars also stopped.
“They tried to intervene and get involved, but their efforts really didn’t have an effect,” Deputy Singh said. “He just pushed them off and went back to it.”
A sheriff’s helicopter landed in a pasture at 10:19 p.m. carrying a Modesto police officer, who shot the man to death after he refused an order to stop the beating, Deputy Singh said. — NYTimes
While the news article doesn’t identify the two as father and son, who but a doting parent could bestow such attention upon a child so young and defenseless? A physician performing a 4th term abortion, maybe?
The smart money has it that religion is involved. Had he survived, Dad would have claimed demons and the devil made him do it. Eventually, his lawyer would ask the court to toss out all that talk: fact is Dad has a little substance abuse dilemma and was off his meds.
Besides, it was only a 1-year old. He can always make more. Lots more. That’s what Dads do.
See you next June, Dad. Not.
