Criminal defense in Austin Texas.

I want to be a martyr too.

Posted By on January 8, 2009

From the NYT today.

“Why are you so happy?” a reporter asked. “Look around you. Don’t you see the misery that you are helping to cause?”

A girl who looked about 18 was screaming from pain as a surgeon removed shrapnel from her leg. An elderly man was soaked in blood. A baby a few weeks old and slightly wounded was looking around helplessly. A man had a head injury, with parts of his brain coming out. He was on a stretcher, his family wailing at his side.

“Don’t you see that these people are hurting?” the militant was asked.

“But I am from the people, too,” he said, his smile incandescent. “They lost their loved ones as martyrs. They should be happy. I want to be a martyr, too.”
