    I'm moving to Texas.........

    Horn fatally shot the burglars, two illegal immigrants from Colombia named Diego Ortiz and Miguel de Jesus.

    Poopy-happens.......I think the Texas Judicial system just sent burglars a very loud and clear message

    He should have been proscecuted to the full extent of the law. What he did was premeditated murder, plain an simple. At no time was he threatened and it wasn't his property. Fry him!!!!!!!!!!!

    He was.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Deadly force statutes in Texas allow for situations like this. If his neighbor asked him to watch over his home ,it's permissible.What would you have done ? Help these crooks load their STOLEN booty in the trunk and wished them a good day? I think not. Not living here you look at this in a different light. The saddest thing is ,there's a hundred more of these low lifes to take the place of these bums. What should he have done in your opinion? According to the DA he did absolutely nothing wrong,and I agree.

    If it was NY they would have, then the state would give these ILLEGAL ALIENS relatives a couple of million bucks and say "we are so sorry"

    The more times criminals are killed by law abiding citizens, the less crime there will be be.......guaranteed

    We just had a guy that tried to steal a a guys car and the guy chased him for a 1/4 mile and shot him dead.
    There was a big outrage not because the punishment for stealing was death but because the guy that shot him 1/4 mile away was a Jar Head.
    I know a whole bunch of Vets and a whole bunch of Jar Heads but that is the only reason all of the "Citizens" wanted to give him a pass is for his service.
    The stealer guy was an addict as are a whole lot of Vets I know. Not much difference here.
    No one should be killed for something like stealing. Unfortunately some Vets steal for reasons many of you can only imagine.
    Tolerance is probably beyond some here as they would kill you for a clock radio but this isn't for them as I feel they are beyond salvation for now.
    Don't be self richeous as how you think it's your moral right to kill. It could be you. Oh ya... the stealer guy had kids that don't have a father.
    And I'm not a whiney liberal... Just a relist.

    In truth, most citizens don't have the training or the stomach for killing. They would probably perish in a gun fight.
    There but for fortune go you and I.

    As this isn't the the wild west we need to decide what constitutes death and what constitutes compassion.
    You could forever and never satisfy the need.

    so "stealer guy" THE CRIMINAL, tries to boost a LAW ABIDING citizens car, and ( as strange as it seems) the LAW ABIDING CITIZEN decides he doesn't want to loose his car to A CRIMINAL, and shoots THE CRIMINAL dead.........boo-hooo

    So father-of-the-year died during the commission of a felony........boo-hoo.

    Maybe father-of-the-year should have stayed home with the kids
