DETROIT – A sleeping 7-year-old girl was shot and killed when an officer's gun went off while Detroit police were searching a duplex for a suspect in the slaying of a teenager, a police official said. Assistant Chief Ralph Godbee said at a news conference Sunday that Aiyana Jones was hit in the neck by a single bullet and died at a hospital. Police said the girl was sleeping on a couch when she was shot. The article goes on to say:
"We cannot undo what occurred this morning," Godbee said. "All we can do is to pledge an open and full investigation and to support Aiyana's family in whatever way they may be willing to accept from us at this time."
I got to pondering this and wondered about money. Do you think it's right for people to demand money for the death of a human being? There is no mention of this in the article, I have no reason to believe the parents will be asking for anything, but I got to thinking about it and I know this is a loaded subject and I wondered what you think...........thanks.
