Folks, this is the picture the Associated Press decided to publish with their update on the German school shooting.
This is the image of those who come to save the day? This is our view of Mighty Mouse? Superman? Should we feel a sense of overwhelming relief when masked thugs come to "save us"?
Why, oh why, Benevolent Hero, are you afraid to show your face? Perhaps FEAR is your business?
Are we wards of the state? Are we merely Helots, tilling the soil for our betters? Do we stand in awe of the Spartan elite who train for war while we toil and labor? Do we pray that our chains may forever rest lightly upon us?
Or, are we Free MEN?
