Verrrry interesting... I'll hold judgment until more facts are reported (and wow, as I write this post I hear the partial conversation with him and the 911 dispatcher on the radio).
It will be up to a Texas grand jury to decide whether a man who fatally shot two men he thought were robbing his neighbor's home acted within the state's self-defense laws.The transcript of his 911 calls are at the link, which kind of indicates an itchy trigger-finger, but I'm inclined to give this property defender the benefit of the doubt. If he did that for me I'd be thanking him, and you'd be damn sure no other burglars would try such a thing on that block again. I hope he was justified. (unintenshunnal speling erers fixd)
The man, who is in his 70s, shot the two suspected burglars Wednesday afternoon in a quiet subdivision of the Houston suburb of Pasadena. He confronted the men as they were leaving through a gate leading to the front yard of his neighbor's home.
