Use of the DEGRADING TERMS “alien” and “illegal alien” to describe undocumented immigrants CASTS THEM AS adverse, strange beings, INHUMAN outsiders who come to the U.S. with questionable motivations. The terms criminalize the persons. Such terms are pejorative not only by those to whom they are applied but by many people of the same ethnic and national backgrounds who are in the U.S. legally.
Ian Birk lied before & during the inquest about how the victim responded before killing him in cold blood. Birk is a Seattle cop that killed a half-deaf man crossing the street (http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/dailyw...) so no, LAW ENFORCEMENT IS NOT WHAT THEY ALWAYS DO!
