While I agree with most of what Rev. Jackson has written, I disagree with one point. The groups that suffer the greatest poverty and receive the least help in all areas are the Native American tribes. And they also get far less notice than any other group. Other than that, Rev. Jackson is absolutely correct.
This particular act committed by those two men is in no way defendable. They are claiming now that they were following the letter of the law in attempting to make a citizen’s arrest. Unbelievable. I’m a white woman. I’ve only ever been hassled by white men, not black men. This is so racist. It’s first degree murder.
