We told you about a recent DGU at the bafflingly named New York Store Western Outfitters in Walla Walla (the city so nice they named it twice). There were conflicting reports as to exactly where the burglar, career criminal Cesar Chavira, was finally dispatched. That’s not an insignificant detail as it could determine if the shooting will be deemed legitimate self defense or whether John Saul – the store owner who also lives there – carried the fight too far after there was no immediate threat to his life. The local po-po . . .
still haven’t finished their investigation and aren’t talking. But perhaps egged on by the example of the reaction to the Trayvon shooting, Chavira’s family is expressing outrage to anyone who will listen.
Tony Munoz, Chavira’s brother, said he knows that his brother made a mistake but he should not have lost his life over it.
“We just want justice, and, we’re gonna fight,” Munoz said. “This could be for anyone’s kid…it’s terrible it happened to us, but it could’ve happened to anybody.”
Yes, it could have happened to just about anyone caught breaking into a home and business at 2:30 a.m. Cesar was just a victim of circumstance and rampant racial profiling. If the President were Hispanic, his son would probably have looked just like Chivira.
In response to the ruckus raised by the dead gangbanger’s family, kvewtv.com reports that Saul’s supporters have scheduled rally outside the New York Store this Saturday. Not to be outdone, Team Chavira have scheduled their own rally for justice Monday evening in the same location. Look for vigil candle sales to spike in eastern Washington state before this one is resolved.
