• 'What's The Big Deal? He Only Shot A N*gg*r.'

    If you haven't already figured it out, the fine chap in the above picture is Walton Henry Butler of Port St. Joe, Florida. He didn't do much, just shot himself a nigger, is all:

    "The below signed affiant states that through his investigation and interview with the suspect, Walton Henry Butler, Butler did admit shooting Everett Gant in the head with a .22 cal. Rifle which caused series [sic] bodily injury. During an interview with Walter Butler he said he shot a “nigger.”

    "There had been an incident earlier in the day when Pamela Rogers came to Butler’s apartment with a child and the defendant called the child a nigger and Ms. Rogers became upset and left the residence. Through the investigation it was learned that the defendant had made several racial remarks to the black children in the apartment complex. The victim Everett Gant went to the defendant’s residence to talk with him about the comments when he was shot. The victim Everett Gant was shot in the face causing great bodily harm he was transported to Bay Medical Center where he was listed in stable condition.

    "After Walt Butler shot Everett Gant he stated he shut the sliding glass door with Everett Gant lying outside the door, called 911 then finished cooking supper, sat at the kitchen table and began eating.

    "When Sheriff Nugent arrived on scene he made contact with Butler by phone, Butler told him to come in he was eating dinner and had put up the gun. Butler was sitting at the table and acted as if it was an inconvenience when he was asked to stand up and handcuffs were put on. He said he did not understand the problem. He had only shot a nigger.

    "On September 17, 2012 the victim Everett Gant died from complication from injuries obtained in the above incident."

    Guys like Butler don't really need Stand Your Ground laws to feel privileged enough to shoot some pesky people of color. SYG just makes it easier for these guys to justify what they've done and escape justice later on. At least Butler was immediately charged, but I bet he's wishing he could get Zimmerman's jury right about now.
