I said the other day that Texas could not have meant to privilege people to create a confrontation and then commit murder. The guys who got shot in this case were stealing stuff. Stealing stuff is wrong. But the law is supposed to remove the duty to retreat, not create a justification for vigilantes to start shooting other people in the back:
Family and friends of the slain burglary suspects called for justice again Sunday night. Horn confronted the suspects in his yard after he saw them leaving a neighbor’s property. An autopsy showed the men were shot in the back.
“I told you guys that one the first day of the press conference. It’s no surprise to me. The thing that bothers me is why (Horn) is not in jail. That’s a big issue for me,” Stephanie Storey, who was engaged to one of the men killed, said during a news conference Sunday.
