Another case of use of arms in civil rights struggle
From the obit of Samuel Bowers, the Klansman who died while serving a life term for murder:
"When the Dahmer family awoke to honking horns in the pre-dawn hours that January  morning, two carloads of Klansmen were waiting outside. They firebombed Dahmer when he exited the home, according to court testimony during a four-day trial in Forrest County Circuit Court in 1998.
Dahmer was able keep the Klansmen at bay with a shotgun while his family fled, but flames had already seared his lungs and he died in his wife's arms about 12 hours later."
