Baby Shower Gone Bad

That’s what the CNN teaser read. Read the story, you will shake your head. Ultimately, a disagreement over giving a five-year-old a beer wound up with someone getting shot. This incident took place in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Obviously there was enough bad judgment to go all around. A guy shooting a gun in the air to break up a fight that resulted in a pregnant woman being beaten with a stick and another man shot in the stomach.

This is an example of the types of situations police officers often encounter when called to a disturbance. It’s an unpredictable world and I’m glad there are men and women who are still willing to go out there and deal with these kinds of situations.
