Racist America: White Survivalist Shoots Black Police Chief Four Times, Walks Free

In Oklahoma, a white survivalist 'good old boy' shot a black policeman four times and was released by authorities who claimed there was insufficient evidence to charge him.

White Justice, black justice - a huge difference

Dallas Horton, a 29-year old white survivalist from Sentinel, Oklahoma, who has a sign on his front door that reads "Certified Zombie Killer," made a phone call to the 911 emergency number and announced he had placed a bomb inside a head start school (preschool). In response, his home was raided by the local police. Horton unloaded his gun at the first officer to come through his door, Sentinel's police chief, Louis Ross, who is African-American.

After questioning by white detectives and the local District Attorney's office, it was announced that Horton was set free because "Facts surrounding the case lead agents to believe the man was unaware it was officers who made entry."

Ross is not buying that. He maintains that there "was screaming from five officers announcing our presence."

Ross, shot three times in the chest and once through his arm, survived the shooting only because he was wearing a bulletproof vest. According to a fellow officer, he has "massive bruises and welts on his body, and the shot that hit his arm went clean through."

Now, we can be absolutely certain that had Horton been black and the police chief white, he would either be dead or locked up awaiting trial on first degree murder charges.

This incident, frankly, is not surprising in today's America. It reflects very clearly the rampant, pervasive, blatant racism that infects white America.

it is sad to see that after ll the history has taught us about being racist and what comes from such acts, we still don't learn, black are the same as white people, why treat anyone differently? i sure wish people would understnd.

I am always conscious that, in such cases, one has not heard all the evidence as presented in court (although it doesn't sound as though the case got that far). However, if they are as you say, this sounds like an appalling case of double standards.

Was anything done about the original claim of placing a bomb in a school? Surely making such a claim - presumably false - is an offence in itself?

Presumably he was deliberately seeking to trap police officers into entering his house for the sole purpose of shooting one of them, whatever colour he was - would he have been charged if the first guy through the door had been white?

The "law" works in mysterious ways.

I was bashed here once myself (in Australia)by a baseball carrying football member of a local football club.

I was the one charged, with assault. He got off. The local football club and the police have a thing going here.

It all depends on who you rub up to.

One law does not apply to everyone.
