Barbarians at the Gate

This weekend in Syracuse:
Rashad Walker Jr. died in a child car seat as he sat with his parents in a minivan parked on a street in the territory of the 110 gang. The shooting was in retaliation for a shooting Friday night that injured two, Fowler said.

Rashad Walker Sr. is a member of the 110 gang, Fowler said. The shooter, Saquan L. Evans, 21, of 1818 S. Salina St., is a member of the Bricktown gang and is on parole, Fowler said.

Sunday evening, Evans fired a gun into the back of a Chrysler minivan, missing Walker Sr., Fowler said. A bullet struck Walker Jr. in the head, causing the child’s death, Fowler said.
And what would the baby's father say to the shooter if he had the chance?
Asked if he had anything to say to the alleged gunman, Walker replied, “Missed me.”
This is the difference between being a father and being a dad. Also, between being a decent human being and being a piece of shit.
