Man Commits Second-Degree Murder, and Gets Away With It
Okay, so I see two guys coming out my neighbour's window. I phone 9-1-1. The dispatcher tells me to wait inside my house. Instead, I outright tell the dispatcher that I'm going to go and kill the guys, hang up, and go blast 'em. Then I phone back 9-1-1 and call for an ambulance. Both men die.
Guilty of manslaughter, almost certainly. Guilty of second-degree murder, really.
But in Texas it's fine to kill people as long as they're brown.
That's the message I'm reading from the fact that a grand jury failed to indict Joe Horn for blowing away two hispanic males he saw crawling out his neighbour's window.
This is really sickening. He called 9-1-1 and was told to stay indoors:
"Don't go outside the house," the 911 operator pleaded. "You're gonna get yourself shot if you go outside that house with a gun. I don't care what you think."And he did.
"You wanna make a bet?" Horn answered. "I'm gonna kill 'em."
"I had no choice," he said, his voice shaking. "They came in the front yard with me, man. I had no choice. Get somebody over here quick."
Smoking Joe Horn, Murderer.
Another responsible gun owner defending, presumably, his neighbour's VCR or something important, and worth killing someone over, like that.
Oh, and did I mention this fact about this threatening confrontation that so frightened Mr "I'm gonna kill 'em" that he had no course of action open but to open fire on the threatening brown people who were terrorizing him?
Both men were shot in the back.
If you visit that story, don't read the comments. The volcanic hatred of teh brown and the saliva-dribbling insanity will curdle milk in any nearby dairy herds.
Just a thought: The hatred of illegal immigrants in the US, and the associated racism, is approaching KKK-esque proportions. D'you think he'd have been let go if he was black?
