The child is in a medically-induce coma. Here is a picture from WSB-TV:
Here is what the child used to look like.
Here is a picture of the portable crib with the side blown out.
Now here is a news show about the incident in which you can have the exquisite experience of seeing and hearing the sheriff sound as if the parents were at fault for not leaving a sign on the front door in day glow letters:
DEAR COPS PLANNING SURPRISE ATTACK ON US;
PLEASE DON’T THROW RANDOM EXPLOSIVES IN OUR ROOMS.
BABY MIGHT GET HURT
This is not even the first time this has happened. Back in Fall 2012 I wrote about a 12-year-old girl who burned by a flash bang grenade thrown into her bedroom.
She survived, thankfully. Photographic evidence shows there is a big area on her side where her skin was blackened from the heat. According to reports from the region, the girl has first- and second-degree burns down the left side of her body and on her arms.
So exactly how many children have to be burned by hand-tossed explosives in this country before the cops get a memo or an email or a Hallmark card invitation to stop throwing grenades into inhabited civilian homes?
If it is this easy for them to get away with such behavior, then the answer seems obvious: never. Don’t take my word on it. Read the WSB-TV propaganda piece for yourself: “No-knock warrants vital in police investigations.” Veteran cops say so. What more argument could anyone ask for? Case closed.
Here is a raw (in more than one sense) interview with the mother. Listen to how she describes how her husband was assaulted and then later bullied and threatened. Do you think it is more likely she is lying than that the sheriff is lying?
What do the deputies believe about the rights of suspects? What if their “wanted” suspect had actually been in the home that night and they had arrested him. Would that make this story any less horrible? Would the burning of the toddler’s lips and the shrapnel in his chest all have been worth it?
