The slippery slope is the point at which the criminal has been stopped. For instance, if a parent shoots a criminal in the act of kidnapping their child and one bullet puts the bad guy on the ground, does the parent with the gun have the right to empty the entire magazine into the perp? No.
If the perp dies of the single shot, the parent's actions are legally defensible. If the parent unloads all the rounds into the perp after he/she is down, then the parent may go to prison for murder.
In the TX case, beating the perp to a bloody pulp is one thing. But in a court of law, beating to death could be considered excessive use of force.

A Texas rancher who beat his daughter's accused molester to death moments after he discovered the man raping the 5-year-old girl, will not be charged with his homicide, officials said
A grand jury Tuesday decided not to indict the 24-year-old father who beat ranch hand Jesus Mora Flores to death with his bare hands, after finding the man abusing his daughter behind a barn.
"Under the law in the state of Texas deadly force is authorized and justified in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault or sexual assault," District Attorney Heather McMinn told reporters.

The guy should get a f'ing medal.
You don't need a medal to protect your family...you do what it takes to protect them from any person. I would have done the same and wouldn't want a medal for protecting my own blood.
