    Being a good neighbor?

    Neighbor shoots, kills suspect in attempted home invasion

    HOUSTON --

    "Neighbors say just after 10 p.m. Saturday, four to eight men in two cars parked on the side of the street near Auronia Drive and Park Talon Drive. They say the men got out of the cars and forced their way into one of the homes."


    "A neighbor who was walking on the sidewalk witnessed the incident, pulled his gun and confronted the suspects before shooting one of them."

    Even us non-Texans know by now that it's going to be declared well within the law.

    Either he will have moved the BGs on to another neighborhood or he's set up the neighborhood for a drive-by. Only time will tell.

    stay safe.

    Another article on the same, but with better sound bites:

    I’ve heard of the “one riot, one Ranger” lore in Texas, but there are apparently some “regular Joe” Texans who are cut from the same cloth.

    I hope the robber has been cured. It looks like he has been.

    People ask why I carry in my home, frequently adding "because it's a good neighborhood." I just let them keep thinking that bad guys would bother invading homes in bad neighborhoods. (Because that's where the good stuff is?)

    Yes, but when it does happen, the really comforting news is that the police are just minutes away (when seconds matter).

    I like the way you think.

    No rule was broken in your posting either

    I wish nobody'd had to get killed... but sounds like my kind of neighbor and the best outcome in a poor set of circumstances.
