9-year-old Girl Scout Shot While Selling Cookies

| February 5, 2015

the live wire flaglerliveFrom the Indianapolis Star: “Nine-year-old Sinai Miller had been waiting all day for this — waiting to get her hands on her Girl Scout Cookies so she could start selling them door-to-door around her apartment complex. […] Just as Sinai took a few steps outside her apartment, with one of her sisters next to her, the gunfire started. Her mother, Shanita Miller, was just inside the door, zipping up the coat of another daughter. When she heard the shots, she pushed two of her daughters back into the apartment. But Sinai darted past all of them. In silence. She went further inside the apartment and then started hollering.

[…] he wound from a stray bullet — its source still unknown to police — missed bone and artery, entering and exiting the girl’s calf without doing major physical damage. After a trip to the hospital, Sinai was back home in her own bed, her calf wrapped with thick gauze. […] Investigators said witnesses reported seeing a person’s arm sticking out the window of an SUV and firing indiscriminately. After the shots were fired, the SUV took off. Sinai’s apartment is in the 7200 block of Rue De Margot Drive, just off Michigan Road. […] Fifty-two children ages 0 to 17 were treated for firearm injuries at emergency departments, hospitals and trauma centers in Indiana in the first nine months of 2014, according to the most recent data available from the Indiana State Department of Health. 2013 saw 65 reported incidents.” See the full story.

    Sad to say but never let your guard down EVER. This country has Krazies. I Feel for the MOM so hang in there and never let your guard down. Prayers for you and your baby. Even when your doing the right thing and doing something with your life and teaching your children to be good human beings there is always some freek lerking around the corner. So scary and sad. Take care.

    damn gangs. Always shooting or killing the good kids in the hood. This little girl is so innocent and didn’t deserve this. I thought it was a poorly made video though, and I bet the suspect’s identity will be kept secret as well. Until we root out gangs this kind of thing, drug dealing and dog fighting will continue.

    She wasn’t shot “while” selling cookies. She was shot while walking out of her apartment door. More drama drummed up by ‘journalists’.
