Discussion Of Malheur Occupation With Texas Newspaper Editor EK

American "Patriots"
Big on The Flag
Not so big on The Rule of Law
Dear E,

Thanks for your email.

Unarmed blacks are killed by American police five times as often as unarmed whites (and they are arrested three times as often for the same "shake down contraband crimes" as whites even though research shows that blacks and whites are equally likely to be carrying contraband (mostly illegal drugs).

I will also mention in passing that Americans are 9 times more likely to be killed by police than by terrorists.

The Caging Of America: Why Do We Lock Up So Many People

The Waco attack took place in 1993 when nearly one quarter of all living Americans had not yet been born.

David Koresh was believed to be a child abuser and a statutory rapist, circumstances which may have made Attorney General Janet Reno unusually trigger-happy.

In any event, I do not approve the federal belligerence in Waco.

Exceptions to rules -- and exceptions "always" exist -- do not establish "New Rules."

Plus, Texas is an "equal opportunity belligerent," the state above all others which is most comfortable with government-sponsored killing.

To find another polity that executes as many of its own citizens as Texas does, we must resort to countries where Sharia Law prevails. (What do you think? Is it true that "We are known by the company we keep"?)

But even when we resort to comparison with Islamic "hell holes," we find that most Mohammedan nations fall well shy of Texas' per capita execution rate. 

Plus, the murder rate in most Islamic countries is stunningly lower than the murder rate in Texas. 

Which, in turn, begs this question: "Is there less murder in Texas than in those states of the "Union" that have outlawed capital punishment?" 

It turns out that the Texas murder rate is almost twice as high as in the eleven U.S. states that do not have capital punishment: 6.2 murders per hundred thousand inhabitants in Texas, and 3.35 murders per hundred thousand inhabitants in the 11 states where the death penalty has been abolished.

And did you know that DNA exoneration of capital crime inmates indicates that fully one quarter of all capital convicts are innocent? 

If you were "the firing squad" and all U.S. death row inmates were lined up before you, would you pull the trigger? 

Would you pay someone else to pull the trigger?

And what does the Catholic Church say on this matter?

But getting back to our original topic...

Do you think Ammon Bundy occupation of the federal compound in Malheur, Oregon is a "righteous model" that Americans of all colors should be allowed (or even encouraged) to imitate, a model that would include -- as standard operating procedure -- a non-invasive negotiation process by "the Feds" which would last months... and maybe years?

Pax tecum


PS According to The New York Times, the Branch Davidian "sect had about 120 members. They were mostly white people in their 30's and 40's from Texas, but there were also blacks from Jamaica and England, Americans with diverse ethnic backgrounds and others from a half-dozen foreign countries."

No, but if they were black they'd be dead.

Or already subjected to some kind of force, quite likely lethal.

White privilege and black oppression just look like they're not there.

Martin knew better.

Dear E.

I agree with you.

At the moment the foremost exemplars of "marching and burning" are the thieving felons who have stolen the Malheur compound from its rightful owners, the American people.

Dear E,

I like your focus on King!

I consider him a prophet.
