Man’s death investigated

MOULTRIE — The Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office has opened an investigation to determine the circumstances of a Norman Park man who died in January more than four months after suffering a head injury in a reported assault.

Roland Edward Hobby, 66, died on Dec. 31 at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus.

After suffering the head injury on Aug. 7, Hobby pretty much spent the rest of his life in several medical facilities, sheriff’s Inv. Jim  Brown said. At the time, Sandra Hobby reported that the 65-year-old Hobby was assaulted at about 4 a.m. at their 200 block of Livingston Bridge Road residence. Brown said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation will assist in the probe.

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
