Lambright said Horn had intended to take a look around when he left his house and instead came face to face with the burglars, standing 10 to 12 feet from him in his yard.
Horn is heavyset and middle-aged and would have been no match in a physical confrontation with the two men, who were young and strong, Lambright said. So when one or both of them "made lunging movements," Horn fired in self-defense, he said.
At issue is whether it was reasonable for Horn to fear the men and whether his earlier threats on the 911 call showed he planned to kill them no matter what, said Fred C. Moss, who teaches criminal law at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Spare me the racist card, I'm HISPANIC!! The thugs choose to break the law, it was their decision, or are you trying to say that all thieves are hispanic?
Who's the racist here?
"what this old billy did was something you'd do on the Hitman videogame. not in real life. I've heard the call and the old folk sounds very, very racist towards Mexican-Americans. He did it for pleasure. thats no hero!"

As I shake my head in a mixture of disgust and disbelief. Since when does a simple case of murder merit conversation? There are many more pressing issues to discuss here.

Infact I am planning on joining the police force, only a few steps away now, and that choice may present itself to me someday soon.
My PERSONAL opinion is that it's sad that you feel the need to have guns in order to feel safe. I would feel quite a bit more unsafe with a gun in my house.
