what century is this? Thank god someone higher up in the Newton County justice system reevaluated that initial response. Rewarding vigilantism by bigots only begets the potential for more acts of violence by racists using their guns to "protect their neighborhoods" from anyone with a darker skin tone than their own. If you think I am employing hyperbole here and overreacting, just read this quote by Canole Sr. on Monday before he was arrested:
"I don't know what they can charge me with," Canoles said late Monday afternoon, before the interview with authorities. "This is my Second Amendment right. Look, this is the country out here, and we protect our own."
