She used it to describe Red Sammy after he let two people screw him over by letting them charge their gasoline.

Surely your experiences in the war--’‘Did not make me condone cold-blooded murder,’ finished Rainsford stiffly(Connell, Paragraph 113-114).

Should the brothers be separated because they have no mom or dad, even though they try so hard to stay together? The people in the system are wanting to separate the Curtis boys.
