After dark in Texas, your property is yours to defend against theft with deadly force. We should adopt that law here in WA.
I thought he was guilty as @#$% as soon as the story came out. The guy was running away from the car and was shot in the back of the head.
The shooters health
was never at risk. He fired from an elevated position. All over some stuff in a car. Yeah... Great priorities.
+1 100% agree, and it should be everywhere.
As much as it makes the softies gasp, i think that blatant burglars, thieves, muggers and home invaders are nothing more than diseased animals looking for prey to devour. They are evil and should be dispatched, and the law should be supporting those efforts.I am NOT talking about misplaced desperatesstealing food or cloths to help their kids survive the cold, hard times making people do desperate things, or someone in some bizarre situation acting out of their character for survival
... I am talking about the ones that do it because it is simply their nature, for a thrill, because they like to hurt others, or just don't care about anyone else.
We need to suck it up and deal with theREAL scum bags, as theyshould be afraid for their survival, not us as citizens fearing them. The softies have forced, bred and brainwashed the modern populace to believe that being a victim (and thus allowing criminals to victimise more peeps) stands on a higher moral ground than protecting ones life, liberty, property and hard earned place in this life.
I propose that when you have a real criminal in your sights, that it becomes your moralresponsibility to act in some way (maybe notshoot him, but definitely detain him if possible). If someone broke into my house, and i let him run away, and next week he kills my neighbor, friend, or family member or even a stranger that i never hear about... well... I had a chance to stop that course of events and chose not too. How then can i not consider their blood to be on my hands, even if partially? Had i detained him or stopped him, then he could not have advanced his evil dominion over this world. I consider these evil doers as if a demon in our midst, and to allow their advances falls upon us as a society as a whole.. or else we admit the ultimate role of sheeple and "just let the cops handle everything for us" ... hmmmm... that being the case, why do we need guns? Ba-a-a-HRmmm-Hrmmm (dammit i almost bleated there..). I understand many dont agree with me, it's just my take on it.
Of course, we all have to follow current law, and doing otherwise is foolish. My viewpoint is as food for thought only, not a call to action or vigilantism.
So was that guy in the OP guilty -- YES
... Sadly he was
. But i still thank him for his contribution to a cleaner safer world.
