Mistakes Happen ... A Lot

It's understandable. Mistakes happen. But, really, the frothing from the mouth reaction of many conservative bloggers regarding the shooting deaths of two family members by an "illegal immigrant" was typical.

But JSOnline Daywatch is now reporting that "Octaviano Juarez-Corro is a "legal permanent resident of the United States with a green card," according to Gail Montenegro, spokesperson for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Chicago. I wonder if we will hear any apologies from the righties who indicted an entire group of people because of the alleged actions of this slug.

Probably not, the chance at a cheap shot was too good to pass up. Point in fact, if the shooting had been done by anyone other than a Mexican, the response from the right side of the chedaarsphere would have been relatively muted.

  1. You could just see the beerguts of Wisconsin running to the garage to get a rope and do their patriotic chore by looking at every dark haired guy with a to-die-for-tan as a potential chance to become a northern state Minuteman.
