Look, there are some cases that are just so clear cut that they defy left and right posturing. And you know this is the case here when the Mojowire and Instapundit are on the same page, something has gone seriously wrong.

Here is the gist from Battle Panda:

Cops mistakenly break down the door of a sleeping man, late at night, as part of drug raid. Turns out, the man wasn't named in the warrant, and wasn't a suspect. The man, frigthened for himself and his 18-month old daughter, fires at an intruder who jumps into his bedroom after the door's been kicked in. Turns out that the man, who is black, has killed the white son of the town's police chief. He's later convicted and sentenced to death by a white jury. The man has no criminal record, and police rather tellingly changed their story about drugs (rather, traces of drugs) in his possession at the time of the raid.

Can you possibly get anymore whack?! I am glad to see some redstaters coming correct about the whole gun rights thing here. Yeah, this is what happens in an armed society when the cops go rogue. Not saying it's a good thing, just an inevitable thing.

But more to the point, people need to get jacked about this one. I know there are so many examples across the United States of racist cops treating the justice system like a two-dollar hooker during fleet week, but here is one that is so clear cut and is such an example of how far gone some places in this country are, that if we don't draw a line here, then where? If not this case, then which case?

Time to suit up for this one...
