9. Those Fellows, Ma'am, Were More A Danger To Themselves Than To Others

Police pretty much shot them down, and the odd thing is they do not really seem to have been prepared for what came for them. Rep. Rush, from my city, is alive only because he varied his schedule, quite by chance, one particular night --- otherwise a police murder squad would have shot him to pieces along with the rest of people he shared an apartment with.

One of the commendable qualities of President Chavez was that he did not make use of the violence which is so common a tool of government in his region. His opponents in pressing counter-revolution cannot be expected to behave similarly, and it seems to me likely his supporters will defend themselves and their revolution, as they have every right to do.
