Philando Castile Had A Permit to Carry

This story comes from NY Daily News.

A similar Associated Press piece was run In Yahoo News today.

Money quote:

A letter from the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office confirms Castile, 32, got his permit last year. The letter, dated June 4, 2015, says Castile's permit is enclosed. It also says that he must have his permit card and photo identification when carrying a pistol, and must display those items "upon lawful demand by a peace officer."

Officer Yanez was trained to view the armed citizen as a threat to himself and members of his Gang. Failure to grovel before a Tool Of The State resulted in Castile being killed.

Is there a lesson here? Sure there is.

The State is Supreme. The State is Awesome. The State rules its subjects. All subjects must render obeisance before the State or the State has the option to kill them. Tools Of The State are immune from consequence for their actions in subjugating the population. 

The Fourth Amendment? That quaint old anachronistic thing? Ha! What was originally intended as a bulwark, has been reduced to a thin piece of onion paper through which have been poked ten thousand holes. Policemen universally treat it with the seriousness of a barricade of saw horses on the street. They simply pick them up and move them out of the way when it suits them to do so.

The Second Amendment? Don't you dare!
