From the 'You can't make this shit up files.'
Officials in Texas announced on Thursday that State Troopers would no longer be allowed to open fire on suspects from helicopters after the recent killing of two immigrants.
"Why Rhett I do declare!" "That's mighty fucking white of you boys!!"
The Gadfly is not surprised that prior to this new legislation, Texas was the only state in the union that allowed law enforcement officers to shoot fleeing immigrants from a helicopter. Big game is big game right? An immigrant's head blown off is the same as a nice set of antlers right?
The Gadfly knows that there are a great many good people in the south - and yes - even in Texas. Hopefully they will multiply and at some soon future time the good people will outnumber the fucking hateful assholes and this country can get on with the business of being a model democracy that the rest of the world aspires to emulate.
