If everyone treated robberies like this, we would have no robberies. Think about it.

AGit-"SilverThread's link it states that both were shot in the back"

Ah, okay, you were going on the detective`s statement (he also stated one of the criminals ran towards Joe).

I was going on the Coroner`s report, where the ballistics were indeterminant.

Plus, they were both shot IN HIS FRONT YARD.

AGit-"I find being shot to death totally unjustified"

A Harris County grand jury concluding the act was a justifiable use of deadly force and not murder. That`s it. End of story. It was justified.

Sorry, but possible death is an occupational hazard when you break into homes. They knew that in Texas they could legally be shot for doing so. Obviously they thought their lives were worth less than a flatscreen t.v. Who am I to argue?

Hmmm, iffy imho. He technically acted within the boundaries of the law. I think he acted in what he perceived to be the "spirit of the law". He also believed he was doing the right thing in his eyes.

He escalated the situation by intervening, with a firearm, placing himself into a position to shoot two men that did not exist before he exited his house. He was in no physical danger, and the robbery had been "completed" (for lack of a better term).

It wasn't me, I wasn`t there, so my opinion is offered with those two things in my mind. IMHO, not murder, but a good case for manslaughter.

MeGrendel, on SilverThread's link it states that both were shot in the back, that`s the only source I can give you, if there is any other, I`m more than willing to take a look.
I do care they broke the law, but I find being shot to death totally unjustified.
It`s nice to know that rational people are thankful, I aim to please (but not at the back:)

AGit-"guilt was established not by a trial but by a lone man based on his own experience"

The criminals' guilt has never been in question. They were caught in the act. They were witnessed to have broken into a house, and has stolen property from that house on their person.

Funny how you`re upset that their supposed `rights` were violated, and yet you have no problem with THEM breaking the law.

AGit-"Both men were shot in the back"

Please cite: According to the coroner`s report that was indeterminant.

AGit-"voluntary manslaughter at the least."

Sorry, the facts do not bear that out. It`s been 4 years and he`s never been charged. Rightly so.

AGit-"Good job I`m not American"

Rational people across the U.S. are thankful for that fact.
