    I hope he comes out clean. If not it opens the door for lawsuits a plenty for future challenges to the castle doctrine law.

    This case isn't real clean. By the letter of the law, he's skating on the very edge because he did something stupid.

    Maybe he'll come out no-billed but whatever happens, it doesn't help anyone that believes in defending what should be defended.

    My hope is that whatever the GJ does, this thing slips off into the dark without any attention. Ya right....

    Having talked to a Harris County ADA about the case, his personal opinion was that the Grand Jury is going to no bill Mr. Horn.

    Uh-oh. The Houston area had better gear up for the worst. The race card and all the jokers who use it will show up. Houston will lay out the red carpet for the likes of the Rev. Jackson and Al Sharpton.

    I dunno about that. Not only did both have a criminal past, both were illegal and back in the US, again, committing crimes, again. The Sharpton and Jackson moron's might just sit this one out.

    It happened when he chased them out into the neighbor's yard and street and shot them (in the back?) when they were trying to get away, if I'm remembering the details correctly. A really stupid move in my opinion.

    ...while on the phone with 911 telling them he was "gonna kill'm" while they instructed him not to. Not that a 911 operator has any jurisdiction in dictating action; at least I don't think they have any such duty. If he would have shot the guys as they were breaking in, or trying to get away with the stuff they had, (sooner than he did) THEN called 911 to report what happened, this would have been in the media archives by now.
