    perhaps but if they weren't trying to steal something other people were working for they'd be ok.

    Nah. He deserved it.

    No Trespassing.

    Trespassers will get shot.

    Survivors will get shot again.

    Yes, he deserved it but shouldn't it be against the law to shoot somebody when they aren't posing a danger to you

    The homeowner might be in trouble for shooting at the fleeing suspect in the car and killing him but I imagine things are a bit different in Texas. If that happened in Chicago the homeowner would be sitting in jail right now and all of the black activists(if the perps were black) would be protesting outside the guys home.

    So they can come back and pose a danger to you again later, or more likely, go pose a danger to someone else?

    You can't kill someone (legally, as in justifiable homicide) based upon perceived, future danger.

    The threat has to be imminent.

    Would be political suicide for someone in Texas to press the matter.
