White Supremacist leader, Shaun Winkler, is running for Sheriff in Rathdrum, Idaho.

In a discussion among the editorial staff here at GMP offers us some things to think about, here.
From Jackie Summers:
The question isn’t whether or not he will win.
The question is: if you can be publicly supremacist, should anyone actually expect justice from you?
Justin Cascio replied:
No, of course not. But when people are married to their partisan issues, they don’t want justice for “the other guy,” they think that you can only have justice for some, and that it’s still justice.
As a country, we need to be reminded again that we don’t vote on matters of rights. Otherwise it’s just mob rule.
What do you think?
