The climate of fear has been deliberately invoked and fanned by the right wing media, so this rather nasty little story shouldn't be a surprise.
A group of young Hispanic friends drove to pick up another friend - and their GPS took them to the wrong house. After they drove their car onto the drive, the house owner, (an elderly veteran and church missionary) was so afraid that he took his hand gun and shot it in the air. The driver immediately started to back out of the drive, and wound down the window to apologize. So the church missionary shot him in the head.
The climate of fear had this man afraid for his property and his life because some Hispanic youths came to the wrong house. Must be a 'Home Invasion'! This fine upstanding citizen had a gun and wasn't afraid to use it.
Now a young man is dead and the missionary is charged with murder and is facing spending his declining years in jail.
Don't you feel so much safer knowing that good, respectable citizens are armed and ready to defend their property?
