Re: AL: Clerk with own gun runs off armed robbers

In very extreme intense situations my brain seams to slow down time and automatically know what to do, yeah im sure most of you are saying "bull" but it's the truth. I don't doubt that you experience the sensations, but research shows that it's an illusion - it doesn't enable you to make more or fa...

Re: Moral Dilemma

Unless they had been gone for days or weeks your dogs aren't gonna look starved and abused. That's the difference. Keep them and keep quite. I agree 100% in this particular case, that the OP should keep and take care of these two dogs. But, I have personal experience that things aren't always so cu...

Re: My new hobby

My hobby leans more towards seeing how many swear words Indian telemarketers know. Also my best time so far is 23 minutes of keeping them on the phone before they realize I’m screwing with them. I love doing this. I got one of them so upset that he told me my address, and said he was going to send ...

Well, they won't be all that high once the poor people moving there drive down the property values...

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

It happens. We once found a spider monkey sitting on the curb near Alabama and Mandell (a middlin' centralish part of Houston). We couldn't find anyone in the neighborhood looking for it, so one of my friends adopted it and it lived in the dorm at Rice for a few years, until graduation (ours, not hi...

Re: TX: Houston food delivery man shoots teen robber at night

Good point in reference to the use of commas. However, it seems to me that this is a form of squares and rectangles. All robberies are theft, but not all thefts are robberies. So, are you asserting that you can only legally use deadly force to recover property from an armed robbery during the night...

Re: TX: Houston food delivery man shoots teen robber at night

(B) to prevent the other who is fleeing immediately after committing burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, or theft during the nighttime from
In that line, the ""during the nighttime" only qualifies "theft". The other crimes are good for deadly force, day or night.

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I thought it was a daytime, nighttime thing. Daytime No. Night time Yes.
Daytime/Nightime applies to theft. This is armed robbery - no daytime/nighttime limits there.

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

If something already happened, it's no longer imminent.
Well, that's the crux of my question, though - when is the imminent armed robbery over? When the wallet is surrendered? When the guy turns to leave? When he's a dozen feet away? Tomorrow?

Re: LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I should point out, that I wouldn't have shot the fleeing robber in this case (I decided a long time ago that I'll pretty much only fire if me or my family is in direct immediate danger), nor do I recommend it. The news article just made me wonder what the law says about that situation.

LAw regarding armed robbery - what does "imminent" mean?

I was reading a news article about a recent armed robbery in Houston, and it made me wonder about a point in the law. A guy was loading groceries into his hatchback when he noticed an armed man was standing next to him. The robber pointed the gun at him and demanded his wallet, which he handed over....

Re: Another Meme Thread

Although the Feinstein quote about laying down your guns so the shooters will follow human nature and give up sounds just like something she would say, it is unfortunately fake news.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Can’t find the free market everyone is talking about where all the groceries are free. Babylon Bee. This reminds me - a couple months back, I went on a riverboat cruise in the Netherlands and Belgium. One of the cities we stopped in was Arnhem - site of the famous "Bridge Too Far" battle in WWII, w...

Re: Trump is the last Republican President

Many will realize that Socialism is a dead end and vote accordingly.......... I hope.
I forget who said it, but someone recently pointed out that you can vote your way into socialism, but you have to shoot your way out of it.
