I can understand how parents would grieve the death of a son. But to blame the person their son was robbing and threatening for defending his life? Sorry, that is moral retardation
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) — It’s been a difficult week for parents Temia Hairston and Michael Grace Sr. Their son, Michael Grace Jr., was shot and killed during an attempted robbery early Sunday morning.
Police said Grace Jr. and two other people tried to rob a Pizza Hut in the 3200 block of Freedom Drive. During the incident, an employee fired his own handgun and killed Grace Jr.
“If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” said Hairston.
So, the employe should have what?Allowed himself and fellow employees to be killed? I would remind Hairston that self-defense is a human right. Good people are under no moral or legal guidelines to cede that right to a armed thug
Hairston and Grace Sr. acknowledged that their son was breaking the law by robbing the business, and said they definitely don’t condone what he did.
“It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” said Hairston.
Well, sorry, but the target of your son’s “desperation” reacted properly. He used lethal force in self-defense. But, Hairston still is angry that her son targeted someone capable of defending himself
“Why in the hell did this guy have a gun?” questioned Hairston about the employee who shot her son.
Sorry, but this moral idiocy escapes me. It really does. Again, I can understand the grief. But to blame the intended victim is out of touch with reality.
