Texas Says It's OK to Shoot an Escort If She Won't Have Sex With You

This is what's wrong with stand your ground and castle laws.

I just saw this elsewhere. It's crazy. You really have to wonder if the verdict would have been the same if the perceived breach of agreement was about, say, washing only ten of twenty windows or something. Also if any American ever would shoot another person over 150.00 about a subject other than sex.

You're probably right on the second issue. On the first, in all honesty, the jury may very well have delivered a correct verdict, in the sense that they correctly interpreted an absolutely ridiculous law.

Absolutely, do you read the news?

This story has everything to do with interpreting the awful "castle" laws that states like Texas and so many others have. They are called "castle" laws due to the phrase a man's home is his castle, and they allow a homeowner to basically shoot anyone in their own home as long as they can prove they were protecting their lives or their belongings. Well the problem with this law, as we can see in this case and in the Trayvon Martin case, is that these laws are so loosely defined is that a person can almost murder anyone as long as they build the right case. I can literally get drunk, have an argument with someone at a party I was throwing in my house, shoot them and claim self defense. Or there's been cases where people shot burglars that were in their yard and then they drug the dead body into the house so that they can claim self defense.

Haha. That's the absolute effing craziest thing I've heard of in a long time. You watch way too much tv. Don't you think the burglar will tell the police he was in the yard when he was shot. You know only about one person in ten that are shot die. Don't you think the police can figure it out? Or if he happened to be killed it would be very obvious if the burglar were drug back into the home. Imagine the blood trail from the yard to the home. Effing crazy! Hilarious! Please tell me about the real life cases you described. Can't wait to read about them. Or were they imagined in you're mind. If so, you may want to see a psychologist for you're possible mental condition.

Hmm. He hasn't posted much in 7 years, so maybe it's only a troll?

Possible, but I would think alts to be more likely to make reappearances than for someone to show up and post out of the blue once every couple of years. I've always been under the impression trolls were short-lived. They get bored and move on rather than come back. It's tough to tell here, not really sure what to make of someone with 49 posts over the course of 7 or so years where half are trolling fym posts and the other half are "this is my email, send me that obscure U2 outtake." In that light, I'm leaning more toward someone who checks back every now and again for U2-related leaks and obscurities, and can't resist a few poorly-written insults while he's here.

Either way, I've put far too much thought into this and should probably just call it a night and go to bed.

Tim, I live in Texas and yes there have been several cases, some proven and some only suspected. And some of them I may have heard about on the TV, it's called the local news.

As a homicide detective i can not believe this happened once let alone twice. You do know that only one person dies from a gunshot wound in ten chances. Any detective could tell if soneone was shot in the yard and drug back in to the house. So theres only a ten percent chance of a burglar getting killed. And you say that theres been many cases where he's been dragged back inside. Ridiculous. Name one! Come on google it and let me know. Thanks.

Congrats on the new job, just 7 months ago you told us in a thread that you were an unemployed lumberjack. Lumberjack to detective especially homicide in that short of time is indeed impressive!

You're going to piss off the NRA folks.

What exactly are you asking me for Tim? Are you asking for cases where this was tried but later discovered false, or are you asking about ones that got away with it? Because if you're asking about ones that got away that's going to be a little hard to prove; one if they truly got away with it then we would never know, and two if they were suspected of but didn't have enough evidence then it never made it to trial or a jury found them innocent so they are. As a homicide detective you know how this works.

There was a case here a few years ago where a woman shot a man in her house and she claim self defense castle laws even though it turned out it was someone she knew, the evidence of breaking in was iffy, and there was talk that she may have even been the one that invited him over. BUT it never went to trial, not enough evidence.

Google "murder under castle laws" or self defense laws. And then Google "shoot burglar drag back in house" and you'll see how many have been given this advice as to how to remain protected by the law.

Are you a detective in a "stand your ground" or castle state?
