Sympathy for the Devil

Comes now the Police Chief of the City of Fontana, Billy Green, to express copious sympathy for the parents of a violent felon who was shot to death by Fontana police when caught hiding out after committing his latest (and, thankfully, last) felony, but none whatsoever for his victim, a female living alone whose domicile was invaded in the wee hours by a large male dressed in black, including a black hood.

“This is a heart-breaking tragedy that changed the lives of two families,” the chief said in his video statement, referring to both Kinard and the officer.

Only two families? What about the victim of the crime?

To my knowledge, burglary of an occupied residence is considered a violent felony in the State of California. Have you ever been the victim of such a crime? I have, two nights running in fact. From personal experience, I can say it changes you, and not for the better.

I am a fairly large male, well able to defend myself in most circumstances, but I lived in a state of fear for some time thereafter, even though I am armed. A small woman, living alone? Use your imagination.

No sympathy expressed for the victim, though. No concern expressed for her well being, only that of the family of the deceased felon, who was a repeat offender, and for the police officer who shot him. I also have sympathy for the police officer, who I expect will relive this incident many times. No normal human being wishes to take the life of another, and I must assume, absent evidence to the contrary, that Officer Tutiavake is a normal human being.

I have no sympathy whatsoever for so-called “parents” who would spawn and raise a deranged, cowardly monster, an evil individual who preyed on vulnerable females smaller than himself.
