Note from 9500Liberty: the video is temporarily down while we revise to include a couple of more details.
This incident with the day laborers dates back to January 7th, 2008, Mr. Letiecq goes to the 7-11 on Coverstone Drive dressed in army fatigues with a camera and begins to take pictures. According to the day laborers, Mr. Letiecq calls them the trash of Manassas, after re-reading Mr. Letiecq’s account he doesn’t directly provide any additional details about a verbal exchange except to attribute the following statement to Officer Sanchez –
had screamed racial epithets at the day laborers, [and] was counting them to see how many buses it would take to ship them all back to Mexico
What’s most disturbing, and it caught my eye at the time, was the following statements by Mr. Letiecq –
If the risk to my person is as great as Officer Sanchez alleges, perhaps I should take his perspective into consideration and make sure that the next time I will lawfully be carrying an appropriate defensive firearm, just in case the day laborers are just as dangerous as he suggests.
Sounds like Mr. Letiecq’s weapon of choice next time might not be his camera but a firearm.
The combination of the war rhetoric, the talk of forming an army, the army fatigues, the membership to Virginia’s Citizens Defense League, the suggestion of carrying a firearm, the inability to recognize racist statements and on and on are a dangerous combination that should be taken very seriously.
