After her 8-year-old son was shot to death, Lakeisha Gadson told police that three armed men wearing hooded sweatshirts had burst into her apartment and fired three rounds, hitting her little boy, Liquarry.
The next day, Gadson admitted she had lied about the intruders. This time, she told police that Liquarry's 7-year-old cousin had accidentally shot him.
I'm all for blaming the parents, but not when the gun belonged to the 15-year-old brother of the victim, an older brother who is already doing time for the crime. And, I certainly don't like the racial overtones of the case. This is a single mom in the black ghetto. What about all those white folks whose toddlers are killing themselves by accident? A day doesn't go by that you don't see one of them in the news, and more often than not the parents are not mentioned.
