What goes around comes around. You reap what you sow. No good deed goes unrewarded. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

That’s pretty much the sum total “Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” version of how people should treat each other. While I certainly don’t rejoice in what is described in the article below, I can’t help but wonder if the cosmic scales are sometimes adjusted in ways that even we mere mortals can understand and should heed:

NEW YORK — Authorities say an emergency medical technician accused of refusing to help a dying pregnant woman during his coffee break was fatally shot near a New York City nightclub…

Police say Jason Green was shot in the face near the Greenhouse club Sunday morning. There have been no arrests.

Green and fellow EMT Melisa Jackson had been under criminal investigation for their handling of a distressed woman at a Brooklyn bakery Dec. 9. They were in line at the bakery when 25-year-old Eutisha Rennix collapsed.

Witnesses say the EMTs told workers to call 911 and left without helping the woman, whose prematurely born baby also died…

Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin. Karma’s a bitch, baby.
