In the State of Texas, if you’re involved in the commission of a violent felony and one of your partners gets killed, you can be charged with his death. Never has there been more of an incentive to “leave no man behind” than when breaking the law in Texas. Fortunately, one home owner was able to make that dream a reality for two burglars . . .

According to the Houston Chronicle, three armed criminals invaded the home of a man and his family. The family scattered and hid. When the criminals came looking for the man, he hid in a closet. Their worst move was going in after him.

According to police, the man shot one of the crooks through the door of the closet. All the thugs got gone, but apparently that shot must have hit one of them pretty bad. When the police pulled over the vehicle, one of the burglars had died in the backseat after succumbing to his wounds. His two fellow accomplices are now in lock-up on charges of murdering him through their own idiocy.

Who says Texas laws don’t make sense?

In Texas, murder is a capital crime. These two men tried to escape on foot and sorely for them, they were caught, tagged, and bagged.

Not everything turned out so cheery for the homeowner, though.  Harris County deputies found drugs inside his home when they responded to the call.  Deputies believe there may be a connection between the men robbing the home and the drugs inside.  I wouldn’t say that’s too far fetched.

And now the homeowner is also facing charges related to the possession of illegal drugs.

It’s a dangerous world out there for bad guys.  Good home defense — bad career choice.

  1. So the father hid in the closet while his home was being invaded and family threatened? And then he fired thru the door? Was he sure it was an invader and not one of his family?

    • I’m sure as they were beating the door down they referred to the homeowner affectionately. I highly doubt that 3 aggressive thugs in the midst of an attack don’t do so without an obvious audio signature.

  2. Who let the cops search the house. Shooting someone inside your home is not justification for a search warrant. Besides, a warrant needs to be specific. I’m guessing “not without a warrant” wasn’t in his vocabulary.

  3. Don’t assume dealing is his career…. you ass..

    Plenty of people have alcohol at home and don’t run a liqueur store…

    He could have just enjoyed a bit of cannabis as a lot of folks do. Cops will say he was the escobar of his town just like they would say HP rounds are cop killers and anyone who has them is sinister.

  4. Yeah don’t assume he was a dealer or anything. It’s definitely a possibility but I’ve heard of lots of cases like this. Like a dealer used to live at that address or something and so former gang members or rivals come looking for stuff.

    Or a personal one; the guy who modded my M1A was attacked cuz they thought he was growing drugs on his rural property. He wasn’t. Don’t know why they got that impression. He was forced to the floor and shot through the back when they realized their mistake.

    He said he couldn’t get to his guns in time (in Canada they have to be locked up). Though I think he said he wouldn’t have wanted to get into a shootout anyway (duh who does).

    But criminals are unpredictable that’s why these safe storage laws hurt innocent people.
