6-month-old baby shot to death in Chicago as father changed her diaper

Jonylah WatkinsYes, you correctly read the title of this post.  Jonylah Watkins, 6-months-old, died early Tuesday morning after being shot 5 times the afternoon before.  Her father was changing her diaper in his van when bullets sprayed the vehicle, eventually murdering the baby and injuring the father.

Chicagoans thought things were getting better.

They thought the recent drop in homicides (in comparison with the 1st quarter of 2012) was a sign that something was working.

They thought leading the nation last year with 506 homicides was the tipping point.

They thought the media attention garnered after Hadiya Pendleton’s murder would change the tide.

Unfortunately, they thought wrong.

Jonylah’s father had some type of gang-related connections.  That’s why police think he was shot at in broad daylight.

Revenge is what the assailants sought.

Tragedy is what they got.

Because a group of cowards decided to avenge whatever “trespasses” were supposedly committed towards them a baby girl is dead as a result.

Jonylah Watkins will never grow up.

She will never go to school.

She will never fall in love.

She will never have a family of her own.

I end my post with her picture once more.  To those who committed this crime, I ask that you look at this baby girl.  Look at her.  And ask yourself one simple question:

Was it worth?

    Reblogged this on Outspoken and commented:
    I don’t even know what to say. This is heartbreaking, and just so horrifying… I wonder if the bastards that did this feel big now. If their fellow gang members are looking up to them now.
    Violence begets violence.
    Revenge killings only invite more revenge killings. And they don’t always get the intended target.
    There’s a special place in hell reserved for these people.

  2. JF Owen says :

    There are no words that adequately describe this tragedy. If there is justice, each of the perpetrators will be found, tried, convicted, punished and forced to live out whatever time they have left in a cell wallpapered with the photos of this little angel.

      That is exactly how they should be punished. This is one of the reasons I oppose the death penalty. Living the rest of your life with the guilt is more of a punishment than simply being killed.

      Thanks for the comment!
