Will God forgive me for not only not caring about this old man's pain, but actually enjoying it?
"A suspected (81 yr. old) Ku Klux Klansman who faces trial on murder charges next month for the notorious 1964 slayings of three civil rights workers is in serious condition in a Mississippi hospital after a falling tree crushed both his legs, officials said on Friday...Even if he is innocent, as he claims, he has a lifetime of hatred and oppression to make up for. I'm having a hard time pitying his good walk spoiled.
An avid woodsman and ordained Baptist minister, Killen was arrested two months ago in connection with the murders of Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney, who were shot on a remote road outside this town 41 years ago."
