"Killing white kids in Connecticut is not okay; we can all agree on that. Killing a black teenager in a hoodie, in a white suburb? Killing an intruder in your home? Killing a racist police officer? Killing an ATF agent who has come to put a microchip in your brain and take grandma off to a death panel? We have a whole range of aphorisms that naturalize these acts of homicide. Stand your ground. A man’s home is his castle. By whatever means necessary. The tree of liberty is watered with the blood of tyrants. Etc. Thou Shalt Not Kill, except when an aphorism tells you it’s okay. The suspect made a suspicious movement, and I discharged my service weapon five times."
