Editorial: Beyond Banning “Bad Guns” and “Arming Good Guys”

Editorial: Beyond Banning “Bad Guns” and “Arming Good Guys” | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

"This is a very thorough, well researched article focusing on the nuances and complexities behind Gun Control.  Writer, organizer, talk show host,  Subhash Kateel goes all the way in and changes a lot of the conversation by busting down the myth behind policies like Stop-and Frisk and everyone owning a gun in country’s like Switzerland being safe. He also busts down the myth that if we get rid of all the guns everyone will suddenly be safe.. This is a definitely must read that drops tremendous information and provides insightful solutions. It originally ran on Kateel’s sitehttp://www.letstalkaboutit.info/2013/01/beyond-banning-bad-guns-and-arming-good.html

10News - Witness to deadly shooting by Border Patrol agent disputes official account

10News - Witness to deadly shooting by Border Patrol agent disputes official account | Community Village Daily | Scoop.it

Published on Nov 26, 2012

By Mitch Blacher and JW August
Aired: 11/21/2012

SAN DIEGO - A witness to the shooting by a Border Patrol agent that killed a mother of five said he saw the agent fire from the street, directly contradicting the official account. He also says when the shooting stopped, other agents harassed and detained him.

Prince Watson was reluctant to come forward, but he said his sense of civic responsibility compelled him to tell his story.

"I don't want to see this covered up," said Watson, a Marine and Iraq War veteran.

Carlos Batara's curator insight, January 14, 2013 11:23 PM

After a few decades of hate-filled imagery, such outcomes, sadly, are not surprising.

 

This anger, this sense of racial entitlement spills over into other areas of life.  Agents cannot simply turn off their sentiments when they leave the office. 

 

I'd tell you what I've seen in non-immigration court rooms, when agents are reduced to being "regular" members of the public, but I prefer not to add any more fuel to the fire.

 

Suffice it to say I have some real reasons for my views toward immigration law enforcement authorities.
