Ever since the murder of Trayvon Martin, the nation has learned a lot about “stand your ground” laws in over two dozen states.
Here is the audio from a 911 call made by Joe Horn as he actually told the 911 operator he was going to murder two people in cold blood. Due to the “stand your ground” law in Texas, he got away with it.
Is this what our country has become? A nation of murdering vigilantes? No matter who you are, if you have even the smallest shred of humanity, you have to know these murders were wrong. No piece of property is worth someone’s life. Period.
Thou shall not kill; Commandment 6.
Now here’s the rub: The people pushing and supporting these laws are on the right. The same right wing that tries to insist they are the “morality” party. The same right wing who insists they are the “real Americans” and are religious, while the left is not. If you support and/or justify the killing of another human being you are as guilty as the one who pulled the trigger. Without your support, these people would still be alive.
According to their own beliefs, most of the Christian Right is on a fast track to Hell.
At 6:35 is when the premeditation takes place as he basically tells the operator he is heading outside to kill those two men.
