He is accused of shooting 2 Pennsylvania State Troopers (killing one).
If he is guilty, then I hope he hangs. Or rides the lightning…or gets the needle. Whatever the folks in Pennsylvania use.
But I haveta ask this question:
Had he shot two “regular” people, what would have happened? What if the victims had been you and I? Would there have been a 3 week, Multi-Million dollar manhunt?
Would they have used FLIR equipped Balloons and aircraft?
Thousands of policemen? Dogs? Spent hundreds of man hours searching?
Abrogated the constitutional rights of thousands of citizens?
Would they have bothered for a non-police officer?
I doubt it.
