Glenda Smith Woodard was unwilling to take her grandson, JeNorman Bland, to get some cigarettes. Mr. Bland was upset with his grandmother’s decision. So much so, that he beat her to death with a baseball bat.
This is a woman who was raising her grandson. It is someone that she presumably cared for, and because she had to go to work, and could not take him to get some smokes, she lost her life.
Human life has become so devalued in this society that we are prone to kill at the drop of the hat, for the most trivial things. And scarier yet, those that are closest to us are the most in danger.
