F***ing Texas! Un-f***ing-believable!

And just “at night”? When its harder to get a witness to corroborate your story? When the cops/jury have to take your word for it? If broad daylight makes everything clear, then no you can’t shoot? But when everything is murky in the dark of night, fire away?

This law fails both basic logic and morality. But what else can one expect in a state where “pro-life” means wildly cheering in favor of capital punishment?

F*** Texas! And especially f*** that jury for reasons I can’t elaborate on without foaming at the mouth!

Btw, I’m a bit mad about this in case you couldn’t tell.

Said this on the other thread, I’ll say it here: research might prove him wrong, but my husband’s thought is that the origin of the law was to allow ranchers to use deadly force against cattle rustlers and such—the originally envisioned scenario was livestock theft from an isolated homestead at night.

Which makes sense in context, and is here being used to legalize a flat-out murder.
