yeah... Texas justice is realistic; he likely won't be charged. In Canada they would have charged the dad with murder and confiscated all his firearms for life.

So basically, it's OK to shoot guests invited by someone living in your house in Texas? Nice.

Guy definitely needs to be charged with manslaughter if not murder.

I posted it to my FB with the notation that this should be a warning to all male teens. My daughter's boyfriend and his mother both liked my comment. She shared it to her wall with the warning to all three of her sons, then told the one dating my daughter that he's been warned.

Did you even read the article before shooting from the lip?

Like it or not, the boy was a guest invited by the man's daughter. Father CLAIMS that he was reaching for something, doesn't make it true. Father also CLAIMS that his daughter said she didn't know who the boy was. A jury should be deciding this (if daddy doesn't kick the bucket soon, considering the last paragraph). Kill someone, you should expect to go to trial...

"Detectives say the man's 16-year-old daughter let the 17-year-old boy into her family's home in Spring, Texas, and sneaked him into her bedroom, but when her father walked in and questioned who the boy was, she said she didn't know.

An argument reportedly ensued between the boy and the father.

The father told police he opened fire on the teen after the teen dropped his hands as if to grab something. He died at the scene.

No other injuries were reported, but the father was transported to the hospital after he complained he wasn't feeling well. Authorities said the man appeared to be on several medications, KHOU reported."

Good lesson for any smart-assed teen who would sneak into a daughter's bed without a parent's permission, then foolishly argue with a man with a gun. The teen should be a good candidate for the Darwin award.

Assuming there was a real argument, rather than an armed ill old fart shouting at a frightened unarmed teen. Sounds like Daddy Dearest would be a good candidate for the gas chamber, or at least a decade of incarceration.

This isn't Saudi Arabia or medieval Venice. Doing what teens do shouldn't be a cause for the death penalty. Might be a reason for a good ass-kicking and a swift trip down the front steps, but killing a 17-year-old kid over something like that is frankly insane.

Right, a state where you can kill a teenager in circumstances that are at best murky, and not expect to even go in front of a grand jury. Charming.

It provides a balance with states like California. People can choose where they live based on the laws of that land. Whether we consider it right or wrong is immaterial, it's Texas.

Yup. Before I sleep with someone's daughter I'd get to know them better, and understand the 'house rules'.

"It provides a balance with states like Massachusetts (where Blacks can vote and go to the same schools). Whether we consider it right or wrong is immaterial, it's Mississippi."

Said someone in 1954.
