So i guess some people do not simply get the right to self defense is an unalienable RIGHT.

That no one has a right to take from you.

No matter the occupation.

Not even the state.

Not even never,never land on Capitol Shill.

Sure beats dialing 911, and just sit and wait to die.


Yes, because people are lying around dying from petty theft while they wait for the cops to respond to recover their 6-packs of beer and tip jars. Could you be any more disingenuous?

I wish I could say I was shocked at the sentiment that property is worth more than a kids life... but I'm not. Just disgusted.


Couldn't agree more!

But, when I step back and consider the source, sadly it's almost predictable.

I thought allowing everyone to be judge, jury and executioner is precisely how they want it in Texas?

You're going to die if your property is stolen or damaged?

You're good with use of deadly force to protect property?


Depends on the property.


Really?

Yes someone is being disingenuous.

Like how the article in the op was been so twisted.

It's effing ridiculous.

I'll state again:

I used the term "unjustifiably killed."

If someone was committing a theft of property and was killed, then by definition of Texas law, the shooting was justified.

Regardless of all your complaints, the beauty of our system is that the bill will be voted on by Texas representatives. If the citizens of Texas do not want the bill passed, they will make their opinions heard.

Furthermore, if the citizens of Texas had a problem with the "defense of property" section of the deadly force law, they would have spoken out to have that portion repealed. It certainly isn't a recent addition to state law.

I would find a part of Massachusetts state law to complain about but I have much more productive things to do than start irrelevant complaint-fests on the internet.

What the hell! Teachers are educators NOT policemen. I know this is a stupid, reactionary law in response to all the school shootings, but man such idiocy...



When being a teacher needs to be a armed proffesion something has gone very very very wrong socialy

How about don't steal from people and it will never be an issue?

Laws should be designed to dissuade crime, not to be more forgiving. The "slap on the wrist" style of justice only creates more criminals.

For this to be an issue worth debating, the people who were shot must be innocent folk who were doing nothing wrong and were shot because of the false sense of justification instilled by the "defense of property" law.


Let's think that one through. Under your criteria, it's "not worth debating" whether or not killing somebody over shoplifting a 6-pack is right because a crime was committed. How many crimes carry a penalty of death? Where do you draw the line? If snatching a tip jar warrants summary execution, what about other minor offenses and what makes it okay for individuals to exceed the mandate of law enforcement when it comes to enforcing laws?

Are uniformed police allowed to summarily execute shoplifters? Graffiti artists? Drunk and disorderly people?

100% agree. Unfortunately, people would rather build dams than address the cause of the flooding.
