Quote of the week

From Sojourners, of course:

Property's not worth killing someone over.

- a 911 dispatcher trying to convince Joe Horn, of Pasadena, Texas, not to confront two burglary suspects with his shotgun. This week, a grand jury cleared Horn of all criminal charges after he shot and killed both men, who were undocumented immigrants from Colombia.
I so agree. If you don't agree, let me ask you this: Do you really think if a buglar were convicted in a court of law that he or she should get the death penalty? If not, then how can you justify killing someone just because that person is stealing your stuff?
