Why do we kill who we kill?

It’s also interesting to notice who it is we assassinate. You ever notice who it is, got to think who it is we kill? It’s always people who’ve told us to live together in harmony and try to love one another. Jesus, Gandhi, Lincoln, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, John Lennon, they all said, “Try to live together peacefully.” Bam! Right in the fucking head! Apparently we’re not ready for that.
