from ALL STAR WESTERN #21 (2013)
Yes, Jonah Hex is a racist (who wasn’t at the time?). But he gets a taser because he calls a cop a comparatively tame racial epithet? You’re a police officer in modern day! You deal with far worse angry comments from criminals every day!
If Hex were the sort to actually lodge a complaint, this cop would have lost his damn job! This is obvious police brutality!
Keep in mind who isn’t coming to Hex’s defense here. There’s a family of tourists who Hex just saved from the gang from The Dark Knight Returns. Do they bother pointing this out to the police? No!
Sure, Hex isn’t exactly a nice person. But he’s the only one in this comic with even an ounce of common sense! Hex is right, Gotham is full of crazy people!
