Another tax collector, by the name of Benjamin Wells, was subjected to violence earlier last month. He was attacked and his family was threatened. The mob demanded that he hand over his record books and resign from his position, but he nevertheless refused.
As a postscript, I’d like to note that these events seem to get more and more violent as time goes on. I am as opposed to the tax as the next guy, but I’m worried about what sort of atrocities could end up occurring if this is to go on unimpeded.
