Rev W.L.T. Littleton, in hostage New Orleans, finds himself facing attempted manslaughter charges for daring to defend himself against two aggressive intruders. Even if we set aside the fact that they were escaping after ripping copper off his church air conditioners and tried to run him over, we’re still confronted by the fact that the good Reverend is a retired New Orleans police officer. This alone more than qualifies him to assess a threat and take lawful action against it. On the day in question, Littleton carried a concealed firearm. This wasn’t due to his possessing a permit from the state of Louisiana. A higher authority, the US Senate, granted him and all honorably retired former police officers, the rare right to carry in all 50 states. I don’t envy the prosecution’s herculean task of impeaching Rev. Littleton’s character. Some see this as an attack on the church. I see it as nothing less than an assault on Black self defense! If a pastor who’s a retired police officer with a congressional right to carry firearms nation wide isn’t safe from local anti-self defense bias, what hope remains for other embattled inner city hostages?
