It just keeps getting better

By: Carolyn Hileman

Don’t let the title fool you. I am using sarcasm.

I am not sure that many of you have heard of a man named Joe Horn he is about to be a big test to the Texas castle law because he shot two men after they robbed his neighbor. They say the cops were watching them (not close enough though) because they are Columbians who are, you guessed it, illegal.

Now granted Joe apparently shot them in the back on his property, but I doubt he got up that morning and decided he was going to shoot someone and besides if the cops who were watching them had arrested them for being here illegally they would still be alive and Joe would still be unknown to the world.

Let’s take a look at why he would have felt the need to shoot these two men shall we? We the taxpaying American citizens have been left to our own devises when it comes to illegal immigration, it is simple if the cops know they are here illegally they are not going to detain them, no they are going to watch them until they hurt someone, like Hiram Winstead, a 78 year old man who was carjacked in the Wal Mart parking lot by an illegal immigrant his face looks like someone hit it with a baseball bat and he has no skin left on the palms of his hands according to his son. The reason they know who this person is is because the police department had just given him a $25.00 gas card earlier. Then there is the news from the Boston Herald last week about a firefighter who was stabbed several times because he was white, yes you read that right. He got into a heated discussion at a sandwich shop and tried to leave before it got any worse, but the pack followed him on foot. As soon as he got out of his car six men started kicking and hitting him and then stabbing him while telling him we don’t want no gringo’s here though the police are not classifying it as racially motivated.

Now today a border patrol officer’s home was broken into by four armed intruders they fired and he fired back, the agent is being investigated for his use of force. I know I am not the only one here that is thinking that we are on our own, when a border agent is under investigation for use of force when he was only protecting himself; you have to know that Joe civilian is screwed. While I do not condone shooting people in the back or killing for no reason, one has to wonder if they had killed him would it have even made the news, would the report say he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time? How much time do you honestly think they would have put into finding out who killed him? Fear makes you do crazy things, if he watched those men go into the other house and walk out in broad daylight; he had to be wondering if they were coming to his house next. Most people know what happens to people who are home during a robbery, this man was on the phone for a while, enough time for the robbers to break into the house next door rummage around and leave and not one police officer was on the scene, perhaps they were debating whether to stop them or just keep building their case either way Joe Horn at that very moment was in fear for his life.

If anyone is guilty of anything it is the police who showed up only after he had done their job, if we are to be left without any protection from these people then we are going to use whatever we have handy to protect ourselves. If these stories are any indication of how we are being protected, from what I can tell we are not. If the fact that these men were known to be here illegally and were allowed to walk into peoples homes and take what they wanted should scare the hell out of every American citizen. Thank God for people like Joe Horn, we are going to be needing neighbors like him, it just keeps getting better.

In the End,
we will remember
not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.
