This is a follow-up to my post Even if they charged him, they wouldn’t get a conviction.
The brother of a suspected car thief shot dead by the man whose car he allegedly stole has slammed his sibling’s killer, arguing he is a ‘vigilante’, not a hero, for his actions.
The robbery victim discovered his car had been stolen from a Texas shopping center parking lot, but managed to track the vehicle down to a second lot nearby.
He walked up to the vehicle to find a man and a woman sat in the cab, and drew his weapon, ordering the pair to get out of the car and wait for police to arrive.
But the stolen car victim was hit with a bullet when the male thief took a gun of his own out from his waistband and opened fire.
Avoiding serious injury, the vehicle’s owner returned fire, shooting the car thief dead.
But now the car thief’s brother has expressed his anger, arguing that the car owner should never have drawn his gun in the first place and complained ‘my mum, my family, we all have to suffer now’.
‘Whether my brother was wrong or right, he had a gun pointed at him. I guess he took it upon himself to defend himself. The guy who shot him is a vigilante, not a hero.
‘A vehicle is not worth taking someone’s life, I don’t care what kind of car it is. You don’t take the law into your own hands. Now my mom, my family, we all have to suffer and just deal with it.’
Police meanwhile put the shooting down to a simple case of self-defense, arguing that robbery victims have every right to try to find their stolen property and that the car’s owner only shot the thief after he himself was subjected to gunfire.
In every one of these cases, where some criminal gets killed by a CCW, the family cries over the loss of their kin, the family can go fuck themselves.
The family here overlooks the fact that their brother was willing to and trued to kill a man to steal his truck.
The thief shot the truck owner to avoid being arrested. He was being held for the police.
That’s why the police determined it was the truck owner, not the thief, who acted in self defense.
The family can suffer, because their brother almost made another family suffer.
These people are human garbage.
