    Texas female protection and the way it should be everywhere.




    In Texas , a woman was called in front of a grand jury for possible manslaughter charges after she shot a mugger in the back six times as he was running away with her purse. He had grabbed her purse and ran. She had her hand on her gun inside the purse and when he ran with the purse she was left holding just the gun. When asked by the grand jury why she shot him six times in the back as he was running. Under oath she replied "Because when I pulled the trigger the 7th time, it only went click."

    She was acquitted of all charges because that's the way it is in Texas and the way it should be everywhere. :texas:

    I don't know the law, but would also have to guess you can't shoot someone in the back that is running away with your property.

    But hey, everything's bigger in Texas. Even our urban/rural myths.

    Actually you can. I will let TXinvestigator post the statute as I am at home and only have a very slow dialup connection.

    I sure would hope so. Why the heck should someone be able to walk off with your property like it was a game of tag.

    Like ever other use if force, it depends on the circumstances.

    Was his grabbing the purse a theft or a robbery? What time of day was it? Did she reasonably believe that there was not other way to recover the property or reasonably believe that using less than deadly force would expose her or another to a substansial risk of death or serious bodily injury?

    I just don't think the story, as presented, it true.
