Spread politeness throughout your family.
Police said Adele Bing, 52, had an argument with her boyfriend, James Lane, earlier in the day and allegedly hit him with a gun. Lane went to the hospital to be treated for his injuries when officers said they received a call about a shooting at Adele Bing’s home.
Authorities said Ruby Bing went to visit her mother and knocked at her front door while holding her 4-month-old baby.
Police said Adele Bing was still upset about the argument she had with Lane and thought he was the person knocking.
Investigators said Adele Bing armed herself with a baseball bat and a handgun, and as she opened the door, she fired a shot, hitting her daughter in the upper chest. The 4-month-old was not injured, but Ruby Bing died at the scene.
And that’s just one of the stories of politeness I’ve seen so far today and, as I write this, I’ve not finished my second cup of coffee. Here’s another.
The holidays seem to be fostering a proliferation of courtesy.
Isn’t it comforting?
