Last year, I blogged about a concealed carrier who smoked an armed robber in a Houston restaurant. The leftist prosecutors wanted him tossed in jail because he shot the guy “too many times.” The prosecutors took it to a grand jury. The jury refused to return a true bill.

Take that, you criminal loving commies.

In every state I’m aware of, a grand jury must approve felony charges – the prosecutor could only send forward non felony charges on their own.
I’m surprised they couldn’t get it billed; that is rare.
I served on a grand jury once; most members supported every charge without question – only a couple charges for No Billed.

Where’s the law that says that once the threshold for lethal force is crossed, that you must stop before it is in fact, lethal?

“He needed shooting.”

As a citizen of Houston at that time, I’ve never talked to ANYONE that didn’t cheer the thugs removal from our society and WANT more instances of ‘taking out the trash’.

This is where the state you live in makes a difference. In TX, IF there’s no charges or are found “not guilty”….. NO civil charges can be brought……

Andrew Branca did an episode on this incident at Law of Self Defense. First four shots justified, no question. Next four after the robber was down, iffy. Last one, after the robber was down and disarmed, in the head, could have sent him to prison. Mr. Branca specializes in what the law actually is, not necessarily what is just. I think that justice was done in this case.

    I am familiar with Mr Branca’s work. I have his book, and I even corresponded with him on the Disney parking lots case more than a decade ago.

I have lived in Texas and in Houston. I do not know of a single person that has ever served on a grand jury for a three month stretch (as the article explains how the grand jury is formed). How could anyone that has a life, career, family, etc. serve for a three month duration? If true, and I was selected, you can bet no one would get a vote to be held over for trial no matter what they were accused of. I would feel as if I were already serving the sentence!

Your boy better be thanking his lucky stars he wasn’t protecting himself in the people’s republic of Austin…
