Dear Editor:

Theresa Caligieuris July 26th letter to the editor noted that us Americans, we tend not to overlook crimes against nature and innocent creatures.

I suppose this may hold true if applied to a deer in Iowa.

However, the same cannot be said if youre a black American citizen in, say, Florida with stand-your-ground laws and you are approached by an aggressive white male.

The tragic outcome of this encounter does not verify Theresas statement.
