'We's huntin's Mexkins'
President's Day AP story reported on a group of armed "Minutemen" organizing to patrol the US/Mexico border in Arizona. Steve Gilliard notes with pity that these fellas are less likely to kill than be killed: "Like all good dick swinging white men, they think all they need is a gun and white skin to control the border." I'm curious about the statement of one former accountant who, while organizing a vigilante group responds to those who accuse him of doing so, thusly: "that is an outright bogus statement. We are going down there to assist law-enforcement." One question: Isn't armed, unsolicited law-enforcement assistance the definition of "vigilante?" (Steve Gilliard)
