So when I kill someone it is permanent? Are you sure ?
Don't waste my time with comments like this.
Umm, that is the point that is why I killed him to make it permanent. Yes i do see the point, and I do not really feel compelled to grieve the loss of the thief.
When you give your okay to killing other people over trivial offenses, you have no room to complain when you are killed over a trivial offense. And this isn't about grief, it's about basic human decency.
You also keep saying the "perceived" thief. Dude you better be more sure that it is not just a perception before you shoot them or you are going away for a long time.
If you shoot them anyway, then you're probably going to be locked up for a long time, at least in most states.
Again this has been the law of the land for some time... Can you show me the pattern where this is becoming a vigilanty nation with the bodies of innocent people thought to be thieves piled like cordwood at the side of the road?
No, it has not been the law of the land. It is the law in Texas at least (and possibly others, but not any I could find), but Texas is not the entire country. Get it straight before you try to argue about it.
The Texas law permits the use of deadly force to recover or protect property. And it was used to acquit a man for killing a Craigslist escort. The reason? Because he thought he was paying for sex, and when she refused to have sex with him, he shot her to get his money back. Even though what he actually paid for was an escort service, not prostitution (sex for money). Prostitution is illegal in Texas.
In other words, the man paid for a Craigslist escort, tried to demand that she have sex with him (which is not legal), shot her to "recover his money", and then was acquitted by a jury. The criminal got off scot-free because he had good lawyers and a jury which bought their argument, and the victim was paralyzed and eventually died. Where's the justice in that?
The defense's argument, by the way, was that the escort was a prostitute, her driver (who she went to give the money to) was her pimp, and that they were scheming to steal from him by not giving him the sex he "paid for", even though sex for pay is illegal in Texas.
So, is your life only worth $150? Because that's apparently what that woman's life was worth to that man.
