Letter to the editor: he did not “provide medical care”



Justice is not measured by the victories or defeats of a political party. Justice is the administration of law and has the quality of being just and reasonable.

Mr. Aubery’s murder in Georgia was a case where three good old white boys stalked and killed a black man. This has been happening in America for at least 200 years. These low-minded, low-spirited men believe it is “manly” to hunt down and kill another human being. It is a hallmark of mental illness.

Justice was swift and fair and they were convicted of murder. How many more murders like this happen that don’t even go to prosecution or even investigation? This murder was swept under the carpet until a video surfaced …

The Kenosha murders were a different story. A 17-year-old white man, armed with a military-grade weapon the sole purpose of which is to kill humans, was driven by his mother from Illinois to Kenosha to “provide medical care”. There, this teenager killed two people and injured another and claimed self-defense.


How can you claim self-defense when a person is the one carrying a military weapon and making the situation worse? It is not normal and fundamentally frightening to see civilians packing military weapons in public. In self-defense, you must have no choice but to protect your life. The 17-year-old could have simply turned away and run away from any perceived problem. But no, this killer shot two Americans and wounded another.

After shooting these Americans, did the killer even see if they needed medical assistance, because that was why he was there? No. The only conclusion that can be drawn is that this killer wanted to shoot people and was waiting for an opportunity to do so.

There was no justice in this case. Self-defense was not what happened here. The outcome of this case gave the impression to gun freaks and right-wingers that they can carry a military weapon in public places and that if someone looks at them with crossed eyes, they can shoot them and kill them.

This is a fundamental characteristic of the right and of right-wing governments. There is no place for this behavior in a democratic and civilized nation.
