I always thought the law in Texas is if you are in someone else's private property, the owner is free to shoot.

Your life or someone else's has to be at risk. In other words, only if 911 is not an option. Otherwise, Texans could shoot anyone that steps foot on their property. "Dem 7 year olds be on ma property. Virginia, git da gun. Bang bang"!!

see I thought that's the law for all other states but Texas. Heard they have a looser law over there.

Texas is probably more lenient than any other state, but your life still has to be at risk. You can't shoot someone because their toenail is on your property.

Typical Texans, just wanting to fill someone up with bullets.

Wow, the idea of 'protect my property!' has really gone to their heads. Even if they were trespassers, wouldn't it make more sense to fire some warning shots into the air, see if they are actually going to harm you, then shoot? Anyway, seems like they are going to get some jail time.

According to Texas law, it's supposed to be 2nd degree murder and 20 years in the pen.

Hmm their only defense might be how late it is. If it's 3 at night and someone is at the property making suspicious sounds then maybe it's justifiable.

THEY WERENT ON HIS PROPERTY!! They were simply near his property. Read the whole article people.

Quote:
DeFoor said Sheila Muhs then called 911 and told the dispatcher: "They're out here tearing up the levee, so I shot them."

DeFoor said the levee belonged to the subdivision and was not private property.

He shot them for offroading on a levee that was *near* his property. Hopefully this retard gets locked up for a long time.

The fact that someone can come to terms with shooting pellets into a group of people just because of where they were walking is beyond me.

What goes on in someone's life to think even vandalism justifies potentially killing someone?
