The evil of White police officers knows no bounds.
They will surely just murder a baby for the kicks.
A touching photo posted to Facebook captured an Alabama officer comforting a 1-month-old baby girl after the parents both overdosed on drugs, leaving the father dead, according to a report.
Birmingham South Precinct police officers responded to a welfare check in a Birmingham apartment complex Tuesday night after neighbors heard children crying inside, AL.com reported.
When they arrived, they discovered a 30-year-old man dead on the kitchen floor and a 35-year-old woman unresponsive on the couch. Both of them had overdosed on unspecified drugs, according to the report, leaving four children — ages 7, 3, 2, and 1-month — alone and frightened.
Rescuers were able to revive the mother with Narcan and she was taken to the hospital.
Officer Michelle Burton was one of the responding officers that night, and knew she needed to help comfort the children. So she called her husband, Jefferson County Sgt. Brian Burton, and told him she would be home late because the kids needed her.
The moment where Burton was cradling the baby, by then asleep, was captured in a photo.
Brian Burton posted it on Facebook with the caption, “Last night, my wife Michelle Burton told me she would be late getting off work because of a call she was on where the parents of 4 small children had both overdosed. Michelle said the father was dead and the mother was critical. She spent the rest of the night taking care of these babies. She got home at 4 this morning. I’ve never seen her more beautiful than in this picture. What an incredible woman.”
Okay, so I guess I read the headline wrong.
It’s just that I’m so used to hearing about White cops murdering innocent Black children, that I just assume this is the case in every story.
However, there is no way that one cop being nice to Black children makes up for the MILLIONS of Black people murdered every year by White cops because of hatred for the color of the skin.
