  1. Considering that Brewer was one of the men who committed arguably [one of the worst murders in modern Texas](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_James_Byrd_Jr.), this doesn’t even make the top of his dickishness. Specifically, he and two fellow white supremacists tortured and murdered the poor bastard by dragging him behind their car whilst still alive.

    Personally I’m…against the death penalty, I guess, but *fuck* some people make it hard.
