Now this is where I might become to Texas Conservative for some of my blog readers, but I applaud the Texas Grand Jury that decided not to indict Joe Horn in Pasadena, Texas for murder. Mr. Horn saw burglars breaking into his neighbors home. He got his gun, called 911, and while on the phone with 911 ended up shooting and killing both burglars. They made a move on his property, he told them not to move, and they started to run. He shot and killed them both. View the story here.
There was a lot of debate about this crime because Mr. Horn told the 911 dispatcher that he was going to kill them if they ran. I do not blame Mr. Horn, I blame the criminals for making the decision to violate the law. Many people are outraged that these two illegal immigrants lost their life for a simple property crime. But the way I see it, if they had not been robbing the place to begin with, they would not have lost their life…and a Texas grand jury agrees with me.
