This Is Getting Ridiculous

No GunsThis is getting ridiculous. Actually, it’s beyond ridiculous. Let’s add children’s hospitals to our list of of unsafe places from the threat of gun violence.

A suspect was visiting in the neonatal unit at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin when police approached to arrest him. He was holding a baby! He put the baby down and ran before police shot him in the wrist. No one else was injured.

I am stunned and nearly speechless. While the suspect brandished a firearm, he never fired. The police fired several shots. While chasing this guy in the hospital. Unbelievable.

Here’s my list of unsafe places: schools, porches, airports, theaters, parking lots, spas, streets, your own home, freeways, turnpikes, libraries, places of worship, cars, parks, libraries, driveways, gyms, military bases, stores, beaches, offices, universities and colleges, friend’s home, garages, and now hospitals.

Here’s my list of people who are unsafe: police, spouses or intimate partners, neighbors, family members, co-workers, classmates, everyone you know, and everyone you don’t know.

Ridiculous. That is all.
