From my experience of living in both New Mexico and Texas, it always has been. (Similarly for the years in Wisconsin.)
A lot of folks in Indiana grow up knowing how to use guns. That may make a big difference.

It is Honky in the hood.
Well, there is that little known section of the law that says its ok to kill an unarmed civilian because they give you a little lip. At least so I gather. I haven't been able to find that particular section myself.
There is no way this should have escalated into a deadly situation. The 'professional' and 'trained' person here was supposed to be the law enforcement officer. For something as petty as a few dollars, let the man go and have him think that he's won the argument. Meanwhile, get his vehicle tag number and send a lodging bill, summons and/or fine to his address.
"Nope, we call 'em Anglos here in Texas, too."
So all of us Celts are lumped in with those nasty Anglos? I may sue.
I think we should. Just not right.
You, sir, were what was known as a "peace officer". I admire and respect those people. Thank you for your service, and may there soon be a lot more like you.
