123. A constructive suggestion for everyone who thinks there has been a miscarriage of justice!
If you believe any of the following:

- Joe Horn lacked the moral justification needed for shooting those men, and deserves punishment for his actions,

- The current laws of the state of Texas concerning deadly force fail to afford adequate protection for people who are confronted by armed citizens who believe that a crime has occurred or is in progress,

- The grand jury and/or DA in this case misinterpreted the laws of the state of Texas and allowed a guilty man to walk,

- The shooting resulted from racism rather than a color-blind desire to stop a crime,

Call or write your representatives in Congress and demand that the federal government pursue a federal civil rights lawsuit against Joe Horn.

Federal civil rights actions have defeated segregation and brought murderers to justice many times. They're still pursuing murderers from the 1960s, who got off because they were supported by their communities and states were unable to prosecute.

All this "is so" and "is not" discussion can never make a difference.
