Houston, TX.-- Shot-gunner of The Year, Joe Horn, 62 was cleared of any criminal conduct by a Harris County Grand Jury. Mr. Horn saw his neighbor’s home being burglarized by two burglars who were also illegal aliens. Horn called 911 and did not let some poorly trained civilian call taker miles away give him what may have been bad advice. I say that because only two rats were killed and no innocent people.
I’m, not sure just why the border jumper's rights folks got involved in this unless that think illegal aliens have the right to victimize Americans after they sneak across our borders. I guess in the end that’s just how they feel.
Horn violated an important law of survival, that of conflict avoidance. There are only so many rats you can confront even with a shotgun before they kill you first. It took guts to do what Horn did. I see no crime even if anyone has shotgun wounds in their back. This involved multiple offenders and the lone Joe Horn had no way of knowing just how many burglars there were of how great the threat.
When a substantial portion of the American population supports home invading burglars over a senior citizen trying to stop them it’s easy to see why this country has so much serious crime.
Some have called Horn’s actions a Hate Crime. There was hatred all right, hatred of criminals invading homes.
Today the calls are for a FBI investigation into the violation of civil rights of the dead rats. Horn was no public official acting under color of law. Horn was just a desperate man demanding his right to be safe from criminals.
Had this happened in Chicago the politicians would be demanding the death penalty for Joe Horn. I bet horn’s Pasadena, TX neighborhood is safer these days then even Mayor Daley’s. Perhaps it’s time to turn the tables more often on predatory rats like the late Diego Ortiz, 30, and Hernando Riascos Torres, 38.
I hope the word gets out that burglary is very dangerous and a really poor choice of an occupation.
