[update: Hey, look at the picture below and then the picture of me to the right? Do you think we were separated at birth? Or maybe I just photo-shopped all the cops holding me out of the picture.]
Should I be bothered by the fact that I'm always somewhat relieved whenever I find out that some murderer, in this case "a troubled man with an arrest record and a reputation for a hair-trigger temper," just happens to be white?
Is this some weird vestige of liberal guilt? Or is this logical relief at knowing 1) what some would would say if he were black or Latino, 2) feeling obliged to argue against some irrelevant and racist theories on race, and 3) then somehow having my words twisted by idiots who would say I'm justifying the actions of murderer?
Here's the coverage in The Daily News.
