As a Texan, let me chime in here. While I almost certainly would not have shot this kid, I absolutely believe that it is the perogative of the property owner to make that decision. This kind of law is exactly what keeps Texas from turning into another Kalifornia. It is also exactly what the founding fathers had in mind for this country, i.e., allow each state to make the laws they feel are right (as long as they do not violate the Constitution) and then let the chips fall where they may. After 20 years of tough justice in Texas and coddling in say Massachusetts, the criminals would figure out real fast where they were safe. I would be perfactly happy if all those with criminal intentions looked at this incident and said "Man, oh man, I do not want to be committin' a crime in Texas, I think I'll move to ____". kjm is right, if you don't like this brand of justice, LEAVE TEXAS, or STAY THE HE__ OUT!
