Cory Maye update

Cory Maye has had his death sentence overturned, and a new sentencing hearing scheduled. Tonight, Cory Maye may not yet be free, but at least he is free from the threat of death due to prejudice and indifference.

Cory Maye's case is an affront to every law abiding gun owner. On December 26, 2001, Cory Maye's home was invaded. He woke from a deep sleep and fired his weapon to protect his children and himself. Cory Maye had no criminal record. The man he killed was the son of the local sheriff who broke down the wrong door during a drug raid.

Where are the usual advocates for racial struggles against majority oppression? Where is Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the NAACP coalition of idiots? Are they absent because a black man had the audacity to purchase a gun to protect himself and his family? When Cory Maye walks free, let the world know who were his advocates, and who turned a blind eye to his plight.

A running account of Cory Maye's struggle for justice in smalltown Mississippi can be found at The Agitator.
