    Illegals breaking into a neighbors home were confronted by a neighbor who happened to have a shotty...they came onto his land and threatened him and he shot them dead. God Bless Texas.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,374223,00.html

    A Texas man who shot and killed two men he suspected of burglarizing his neighbor's home was cleared in the shootings Monday by a grand jury.

    Joe Horn, 62, shot the two men in November after he saw them crawling out the windows of a neighbor's house in the Houston suburb of Pasadena.

    Horn called authorities and told the emergency dispatcher he had a shotgun and was going to kill the men. The dispatcher pleaded with him not to go outside, but Horn confronted the men with a 12-gauge shotgun and shot both in the back.

    Lambright said Horn believed the two men had broken into his neighbor's home and that he shot them out of fear for his life when they came into his yard and threatened him.


    i don't quite understand how he shot them in the back if they came into his yard to threaten him. probably they didn't see the shotty until it was to late. they threatened, he produced shotty, they started to run, they stopped running.

    God Bless Texas.

    He's very lucky, even in texas. If he shot them in the back, it's still a very touchy thing.

    Personally, I'd just tell the cops I heard them say they were going to get their guns. But he's still lucky. All holes need to be in the front.

    Hard to say, based on what my friends and family in Texas tell me. The fact that they were illegal (that means "mezkin") didn't hurt his case, I'm sure.

    Honestly, good for him. He probably shot them in the back because they threatened to return with some guns of their own and take him down for catching them breaking and entering. And now, it's -2 illegal immigrants in this country. Now all we have to do is finish the job. :banned:

    Texas is really creepy. Remember a few year ago when a jury acquitted some millionaire for admittedly murdering a wrestler and cutting him to pieces?

    But, shooting illegal immigrants in the back. I'm surprised that even conservatives would defend that.

    But hey, they were scumbag thieves. Here's a tip for all low life scum that break into other people's houses to steal the hard earned belongings of others: If you don't want to get shot, and killed, then don't steal. The same would go for pedohiles, rapists, and whatever other losers are out there in society.

    They WILL also sue. Like a cop told me and my buds once. If you shoot, shoot to kill. If you only injure someone, they're just gonna sue you.

    He didn't shoot illegal aliens in the back. He shot scum sucking theives dead. When my house was robbed last year, do you think I'd ask for proof of citizenship before deciding whether or not I should kill the vermin that were doing it?

    I know people who've been badly hurt by "wounded" and "escaping" criminals. Why take a chance?

    Because it's wrong to kill people unless absolutely necessary, but maybe that's a liberal point of view.

    Curious... Would this sentiment hold consistent for Italian mobsters?

    If Jimmy the Snake, and Tony the Eel were caught heisting your plasma TV, would you not hesitate to fill them full of lead also? I'm pretty sure your answer is still "no, i wouldn't hesitate," but I just wanted to ask.

    :disagreement:

    I'm not sure it's liberal or conservative. I also don't know what constitutes necessary...if your house, family or self are being threatened, is it important or not?

    Some people don't like the idea of killing. Some people don't mind.
