The lives of the individuals harmed by Gunwalker mean nothing to statists, for they recognize no right to self-defense, inalienable or man-bestowed. If they recognize no such right, each human life has only that value the state is willing to recognize at any given moment. The lives of the Mexican law enforcement officers and civilians are worth nothing to the Obama administration, which hid Gunwalker not only from Mexican authorities but from ATF agents in Mexico.
And now the Obama administration has revealed its assessment of the value of the life of a Border Patrol officer: Zero. Agent Terry is of no value, for the crime was committed not against him, but the state, which in its wisdom and mercy is far more concerned with protecting feckless bureaucrats and politicians than American citizens.
England has seen riots because the English allowed those who rule them to place what value they choose on the lives of Englishmen. They chose the indolent, the parasites, the criminals, the barbarians over honest, productive Englishmen and denied them their very right to exist when attacked by members of the parasitical class, the class established by the state and the class which perpetuates the state lest its very nourishment be cut off.
Gunwalker is the fruit of that soil transplanted to America. All of the economic, foreign policy, and other debacles foisted on the American public by past progressives and Barack Obama have grown from it. What remains to be seen is whether their policies will reach their full expression in flame, as in England, or whether Americans can reclaim the very foundation of liberty, the foundation without which no other right or privilege matters.
