A Harris County grand jury on Monday ended the rancorous seven-month debate over Pasadena resident Joe Horn's decision to gun down two illegal immigrant burglars in his front yard, concluding the act was a justifiable use of deadly force and not murder.
The grand jury heard two weeks of testimony from witnesses, including Horn. They likely also heard his breathless 911 call, during which the increasingly frustrated retiree ignored a dispatcher's pleas to stay inside and out of harm's way. The Nov. 14 call ended with the sound of Horn racking a shell into his 12-gauge shotgun's chamber followed by three gunshots that killed Colombians Diego Ortiz, 30, and Hernando Riascos Torres, 38.
Aww...ain't that a bitch? I'll bet the amount of break-ins by illegal aliens has dropped precipitously since Horn opened fire. The original 911 call:
Can someone please serve up a little cheese to go with Lisa Falkenberg's whine?:
This case has never been about gun rights, or self-defense. There are few people in this state who question someone's right to protect themselves with a gun if his or her life, family's life or property are threatened.
That wasn't the case with Horn.
The little old man from Pasadena gunned down two men like dogs. For a bag of loot.
No, Lisa. This was not "for a bag of loot". This was because two illegal alien dirtbags brazenly broke into and robbed a home. Let's not take our eye off the ball here.
Lesson...you don't want to get blown away, don't rob. Do you think robbery crimes would go down if there was a Joe Horn living in every neighborhood?
