If I was his lawyer I would claim he was also in fear for that lady’s life.

Laughing hard at that. Guy started beating feet as soon as the bitch screamed. If I was on the jury I would convict as no immediate deadly threat was seen.

No sympathy for a brazen thief. They deserve what they get. Hopefully we will see a case of jury nullification here, but not likely in today's racially charged political environment. Short of that, however, he's going to prison.

I feel bad for the shooter but he fugged up bad! Shooting someone in the back when they are fleeing? He is so screwed! He might even die in prison!

I'm sure it has changed by now, but at one time, in the state of Texas, it was like this......
Example: You catch a thief leaving your garage with your "item". You draw your weapon and the thief ignores you or fails to comply with "dropping" the "item", you were legally allowed to shoot with the intent of reclaiming your "item". "IF" the thief drops the "item", you can no longer shoot.

How the law reads now...(????)...I have no idea!

The "test" case was a young man caught leaving (fleeing?) a garage with the homeowners bicycle.
The young man refused to comply with returning the item and challenged the homeowner to "shoot".
The "homeowner" complied with a nonlethal round to the leg.
The homeowner was nobilled. The thief went to prison.
That was MANY moons back!

I can only presume that the liberal/conservative leanings of the grand jury will probably determine charges or not.
We "KNOW" that grand jury's "SHOULD" be "non-biased"😡!!!

Ok, so the State of Texas jury decides he’s not guilty. Shooter white, offender black. The Feds are going to charge him with a hate crime and violation of his civil rights. Then he be really fugged.

I believe that is correct vis a vis Texas law.

Wonder what the gun store's thought process was for not calling 9-1-1?

I do know of an instance where a thief entered a gun store, grabbed a handgun and ran out of the store with an armed employee in pursuit.
Outside, the store employee confronted the thief in a crosswalk, attemptingbto load the stolen gun. The employee reacted immediately, fatally.
That was back in the mid 70's, somewhere in northeast Texas.

Different times between now and the way it used to be. 1960's time period, this happened close to where I live........there had been a lot of thieving going on in the area, mostly gas and things that were left laying around and easy to pack off. One old fellow lived on a isolated farm and he had been hit so many times that he'd lost count. He heard his dog bark one night and got up to see what was going on. He saw some thieves out in his barnyard. The old guy got a double barrel shotgun and stepped outside. He yelled "hold it right there you thieving SOB's". The 3 thieves took off running down the driveway, and he put two loads of buckshot in them. One guy would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair, another would always walk with a limp, and the third lived two days after being shot before dying.

The old man claimed he heard a shot and thought they were shooting at him, but there was never any evidence that they did. However, it didn't matter, as he was never charged with anything. The local folks all considered it good riddance.

A serious gun guy understands the use of deadly force and its' application at an instinctive level. Few gun guys are serious enough to train and learn. He will spend some serious time braiding his new husbands hair due to his ignorance.

Texas specifically states you can protect yourself, AND your property from destruction or theft.... at NIGHT.

Daylight hours change things to protect yourself or another person from serious bodily injury or death.

You have to wonder if they were hoping some black youth with a criminal record as long as his arm would be discovered to have been shot to death, with no leads as to who did it.

Quite the contrary, as proven in the case of the black kid who stabbed his attacker to death. What's fair is fair, regardless of the races involved. You may have me confused with a liberal, for whom such considerations govern judgment.

That does indeed open a door to a possible acquittal, since he may reasonably have feared using non-lethal force, under the expectation that many criminals (particularly criminals as brazen as this one) are armed in one way or another.

Every time something comes on your feed you express a desire to completely eliminate due process.
