No suprise here:

Pima County gets the seal of approval on the murder of Jose Guerena.

Good thing I am not a family member of his:

Now, knowing the names (from the above letter) of at least some of these officers, were I a vindictive sort, I'd no doubt visit them in order to "counsel" them on their behavior. Personal, private "counseling". Serious, intense "counseling".

But I am like that. Always wanting to help.

H/T: WRSA...Follow all his links. Especially the last one. Think.

You might think that I am overreacting, but think about it: If they can do it to us, why cannot we return the favor? We are, after all, greater in number (and skill), and if the law will allow their actions to stand, then why should we honor it? Why should we follow the letter of the law when it is twisted to allow such actions to be justified? What kind of a society have we wrought when the enforcers of the law can perpetrate such crimes with impunity? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

What would you do were it your brother, or son, or father who had been murdered by a gang of policemen?

You should, perhaps, decide now, so you will know later. For the time is coming. And apparently sooner that we wish.

Think of THESE words. The time may be nigh.

Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether."

Abraham Lincoln, 1865
