Indianapolis resident LaDonna Dixon was frantic to help her friend Ashley, who was having a seizure. While LaDonna retrieved Ashley’s medicine from her car, Officer Scott Childers arrived and took control of the scene.
When Dixon attempted to give Ashley her medication, Childers threw her to the ground, maced her, and then beat her into unconsciousness, despite the fact that she was in an advanced state of pregnancy.
As Childers beat Dixon, the father of her child arrived on the scene and pleaded with the officer to stop, to no avail. At this point, the father was morally justified in using lethal force against Childers in order to defend his family, had this been possible.
When Dixon awoke, she was in a holding facility. She was bleeding, and her face was burning from the mace. After her jailers refused to take her to a hospital, Dixon gave birth to a dead child – who was murdered through police abuse before taking his first breath.
Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
