    I'd love to see any surveillance video (if any exists) to show what really happened here. I wonder if a little extra self-awareness might have prevented this incident, or at least allowed the BG to be shot before he was able to run off with a wallet?

    You know. I have to wonder if anyone has ever stolen a wallet from somebody in a manner similar to this, then when they started rummaging through the cash and credit cards later on discovered a concealed handgun permit in the wallet. I wonder if they'd realize how near to death they were when they took the wallet?

    sorry but you'll need to do your own homework, try searching here or googling Ayob, he has written a lot about it

    It really kinda irks me that some states feel its okay for somebody to rob you and then run away with the money your suppose to pay rent and support your family with,IMHO it's different if somebody is stealing a bicycle,or a kids toy.
    I also feel that the threat might not be over just because the robber took my wallet and ran,he now has my address in his hands and may decide to burglarise my house while I'm filling out a Police report at Walmart for an hour or more.
    Lets just say I'm glad that in Texas things are a little different.

    One more thing is Robbers tend to target Hispanics due to the fact a lot of them don't have bank accounts and carry their cash on them

    Perhaps the 'victim' tried to distract the 'perp'?

    I'm thinking that if the bad guy has a knife and I have a gun one of two things is about to take place. 1, he would not end up with my wallet to begin with. And 2, if he did somehow acquire my wallet with all my info and cash, I'd be chasing him and giving him a pepper blaster hose down.

    It sucks that legally you can not shoot a BG who is fleeing with your things, but that is the law...

    Sometimes legal and right do not meet eye to eye.

    My first thought was. Nice shot!

    It's easy to play armchair QB but I can understand the emotions involved. Surely the guy just reacted to being physically assaulted and robbed. I think murder is way too harsh.
