And I posted the law that shows that statement is false. There are certainly times and circumstances where TX law allows you to legally use deadly force to protect property without going to jail.

I haven't come back with anything like that. I even posted the law showing that under the proper circumstances TX law will allow you to legally use deadly force to protect property even when your life is NOT in danger.

So did I. So does TX Law.

Can you ALWAYS use deadly force to protect property in TX? NO! Read the law.

Can you SOMETIMES use deadly force to protect property in TX even when your life is NOT in danger? YES! Read the law.
