Shooting in the back? That isn't cricket is it. Allow this and next people will be switching from a right handed stance to a left handed stance, once the field has been set and the bowler commenced his run up.
If you play with fire, expect to get burnt. It's Texas, after all; what would a burglar expect? They took the decision to sneak into the US, and to burgle this house; just their bad luck that the guy next door wasn't a bleeding heart liberal.
It was good old, down home justice. Enough of us on here have advocated this punishment for less. Front, back, it matters not where he shot them. It could have been in the living room and I would still support him.
I had a South African colleague a few years ago who told me it was perfectly legal to shoot intruders - if black - anywhere on your property, and if they happened to be outside your curtilage, the police would happily drag them across threshold for you afterward.
It wasn't mentioned in the report but I believe the burglars in question must of had arms. Other wise how were they going to get their ill gotton gains out of the domocile that they were busy f*cking over?
Wish we had the right to kill scum in this country - saves a fortune on administering community service and social services.
Not murder at all - these people chose to act outside of the law and therefore should be prepared to reap the consequences of their actions. Tough fu*kin sh1t!
Just been raped? ooh the poor thing, I hope he used a condom and the judge is lenient, she was obviously asking for it!
What, they all beat him to death in the street? Tsk tsk, that's the price he paid for being in an uncaring society where the yoofs that killed him don't feel involved enough. State-paid holidays all-round.
What!?!? You car's been broken into? You silly tw@t, you should have removed your stereo from view, no wonder the little tikes took it!
Nooo, she got caught in Thailand smuggling drugs? The poor girl; I blame the mother y'know.
You don't say; really? They robbed a house in Texas? . . . . .
There was a not dissimilar incident about 14 years ago, when an ex-sherrif was beaten and robbed. 4 burglars entered the house, beat the 76 year old man quite badly, breaking one of his legs. Then, as they stole items and carried them out to a truck in the drive, he managed to get to a drawer where he had a weapon. He opened fire on them, killed two in the drive, one as he was getting in the truck and the driver - in the back of the head - as he tried to start the vehicle.
The sherrif was charged with discharging a firearm in a public place (since he had fired toward street) but at court was deemed not guilty, and the judge organised a whip round and bought him enough ammunition to last the rest of his life.
no problem at all shooting someone in the back - provided you can justify doing so..R v Beckford, pre-emptive strike etc etc stop blubbing about it..skin colour doesn't matter..burglary does, theft does and all the sh*t that these type of scum carry out with impunity day in, day out.
A little more of this kind of summary justice and we might start to eradicate some more of the sponging whinging thieving dull lazy turdbags.
here endeth the lesson.
