Man Kills Securocrat in Self Defense - Sentenced to Death

This happened in Prentiss, Mississippi, about 20 miles from where I grew up. The police broke into the wrong house in a no-knock raid. Didn't announce that they were police. In the middle of the night. The innocent black man in the home fired in self defense, and killed the police chief's white son. Cory Maye was sentenced to death by a white jury, and now sits on Death Row in Mississippi.

Notice you didn't get any nasty comments on this post, because this is exactly the kind of thing you SHOULD be getting upset about, and that any reasonable person would get upset about. The fact that liberals seem to follow the crowd and go ga-ga over Tookie, while ignoring these kinds of cases, is why I can no longer self-identify with today's liberals.

You people are so freaking stupid. How is this any different than the post about the Air Marshal murdering that man? The only difference is that he was unarmed. What if Rigoberto Alpinoza had shot back and killed the federal Air Marshal in self defense? Who be be defending him then?

The difference is they didn't identify themselves as police in this situation. I keep a weapon for protection and anybody in my house in the middle of the night should expect to be shot. I have experienced a raid before. The police thought that a murderer was being housed in my aunts house, they came in and the first thing they said was "This is the police," then they proceeded to bark orders, which I followed, and point riot guns at us. The police should have identified themselves. Had they identified themselves and he shot at them, he should have been shot on the spot.

Peenie, if your objective is to persuade your readers that your point of view is something to consider, it doesn't help to begin by calling your readers "stupid." Have you given thought to why you feel compelled to be so impulsively overreactive in your responses?

I assume that you're implying that he would have missed when he shot at the police. Possibly, if he was a good shot, he could have killed them all, saving his own life.
