Remember and honor. Don't hate.

  1. This post has more information on the radio show, which apparently only asked listeners to call LULAC and didn’t suggest making threats:
    It’s unfortunate that someone did (according to LULAC) make a threat, because it gave them the chance to take advantage of the situation to play the victim card.

  2. Unfortunately, there are those on the fringe who will take advantage of a tragedy like this to make trouble. I no more consider those who made such calls to LULAC to be representative of people who are opposed to amnest and special programs for illegal immigrants (and want to see the immigration laws already in place enforced) than I consider those who loot and riot during victory celebrations to be representative of sports fans (or residents of the city where the looting/rioting took place.)
    There are those who will also take things like “call this number” to include “and threaten to off them and their whole family, while using words like **** and **** and especially ************ as many times as possible.” The only thing you can do about such folks is to find them and prosecute them and demonstrate to folsk that there is a difference between dissent and debate, and stalking and threats – and that while one is a cherished right, the other will not be tolerated.

  3. I was driving back from a business trip this afternoon & saw an array of police cars lined up along the feeder of I-45 just north of the Beltway exit. Traffic was a mess, and when I saw all the police cars with lights going, I thought they were having one heck of an amazing bust go down. Then I realized they were just outside of a cemetery, and I suddenly knew what it was. The reason traffic was so messed up was that people, ordinary citizens, had pulled over on the shoulder of I-45, stopped their cars, and stood to watch and honor the procession. It was all I could do to keep driving with the tears dripping down my cheeks.
