One possible explanation

The tearful mother of the Liberty City man who gunned down two Miami-Dade police officers Thursday pleaded for forgiveness Friday, but added she had no idea her son would open fire when she let the officers into her home.

"I am very sorry for the officers that were killed," an emotional Lorraine Simms said Friday, less than 24 hours after her home turned into a bloody crime scene. "I lost my son too."

. . . When the shooting ended, Johnny Simms, a 22-year-old career criminal wanted for murder in Overtown, was dead. But not before he mortally wounded veteran detectives Roger Castillo, 41, and Amanda Haworth, 44, who along with two others were serving him a warrant for the killing.

The 37 year old mother of the 22 year old three time murderer asks, "How do you explain it?"

One possible explanation is that a poor uneducated single teen had a child at age 15.
