  •  You're only allowed to use deadly force (3+ / 0-)

    if you're a white guy living in a red state. Under these circumstances, a white man can shoot a woman or a person of color and get off. But if you are a woman or person of color, you are NOT allowed to defend yourself.

    That's pretty much how our laws (at least in red states) work. Trayvon was stalked and murdered and his killer got off. A woman in Florida who fired a warning shot in the air as her abusive husband came at her got 20 years and the DA's hoping to turn that into 60 years.

    Our nation is f*cked up.

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. ~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~
