Goes to show that the line between hillbillies,country boys,and rednecks,,,is a bit broader than it appears to be to the untrained eye.Country boys and hill-billies alike are usually quick to be diplomatic,open-minded,and reasonable.Red-necks on the other hand are a bit more stubborn breed.Even if you were to color a picture and make them see what's in front of them,,,they would never admit it due to pride,and only get louder and more arrogant in support of the contrary if you argue it with them.In short,you shouldn't waste your time attempting to reason with the simple-mind of a redneck,,,when you can have just as much fun as well as teach him the same lesson by standing just outside the end of his chain,and pokin' him with a stick.All kidding aside,I appreciate what you said and wholeheartedly agree with you.Turning a blind eye to over-zealous and trigger-happy officers for whatever reason,makes it more and more dangerous for civilians such as you,me,Jasper,and all of our families,down the road in the "not" so long run.One among us though,,,isn't intelligent enough to see around the corner.Either way,have a good day Tom.

Im not a redneck but i can see why the police shot and killed the man. I know both cops will live with what happened and the family will have to live with Treys death also.
Jasper sounds like a total f'ing racist butthole!

Can't say that I agree with your view,but I believe it's fairly obvious that you're no red-neck.Misguided country boy perhaps,,,but not a red-neck.
