Thou shalt not kill — unless you’re an elderly church deacon and he’s homeless?

And likely not to be charged with any crime, according to police:

Eighty-year-old Lillian McTodd, dressed head to toe in white, struck the man as he pushed a shopping cart containing bottles on Gates Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant at around 10:30 a.m., witnesses said.
He was in the crosswalk, and McTodd had a green light as she made a left turn in her gold Chrysler 300C from Bedford Avenue onto Gates, police said.

“I didn’t know him, never saw him before,’’ the stunned woman told The Post after the accident, with the man’s body lying in the street about 15 feet away.

She was headed to 11 am mass at her church at the time, her bible was open on the dashboard and she also had a plaque on the windshield: “God is my co-pilot.”

My assumption is that her head was filled with church mission thoughts and not actually on her driving which, at that moment, really should have been the priority in her life.

Unfortunate. Maybe she needs to be banned from driving at least.

Thoughts?
