    Around 150 grains vs around 18,000,000 grains, yep, I would guess so.

    This Texan will probably get a "points credit" on his driver's license.
    I have no problem with the outcome.

    The guy's probably going to get in trouble, but at least there's another society leech off the streets.

    I would imagine for chasing after him in a car instead of calling for help and letting LE take care of it. I can see maybe following from a distance to help LE locate the guy but he kind of put himself close enough to get shot at. His intentions would seem to be reflected by the outcome. BUT, if Texas law allows someone to drive after someone who robbed you when you know they have a weapon and run them down with a car, then he probably won't get in trouble.

    While not always prudent, I know of no law anywhere that prohibits chasing someone who robbed you.

    Do not bring a gun to a car fight.

    Don't quote me on this because I'll have to go back in look it up to be sure but I believe down here the law is as long as you don't lose line of sight you can follow them from end of the state to the other. You just have to maintain a visual on them. If they go around a corner and you no longer have a line of sight on them, then you have to stop/end the chase.
