Campbay: Of greater danger than aliens

Campbay (RE: Suspect in Montana cop slaying had violent background): Labrador keeps focusing on the 'dangers' faced by the citizens of Idaho from Mexican farm laborers. I lived in Southern California for 30 years and wasn't afraid living there. Here in the panhandle the number of illegal Mexicans is miniscule. I've called his office many times, when the issue comes up, that I am much more afraid of white American citizens who are ultraconservative and armed to the teeth. I've been in and out of this area since the 1950's and there are some seriously deranged people around here with free access weapons even though they would likely be judged to be certified sociopaths by mental health professionals. California does have them but I never ran into them in the numbers that we have around here.

Question: Which concerns you more: Ultraconservatives armed to the teeth or Mexican farm workers?
