    good if your not a BG-S.A.'s homicide rate is up 22% this year

    One pattern criminologists have seen is more justified slayings in Texas and other states whose laws allow citizens to arm themselves to protect their life or property if faced with a deadly threat. “People are not being prosecuted when they've acted in self-defense, and that may be giving people more confidence to use deadly force when they have to,” said Michael L. Seigel, director of the Criminal Justice Center at the University of Florida.

    San Antonio is no different than any other big city. Crime is on the rise but justifiable homicides are on the rise too

    Yep Texas has pretty good laws as far as SD and if it is deemed SD you cannot be sued by perp or family members

    The problem is that justified shoots are lumped in with murders in the statistics people see. The average person watching or reading the news will only see an increase in the homicide rate. If only those publishing these stats in the news would separate out the justified from the murders and suicides.

    What I found interesting was the justifiable homicide rate chart at the bottom of the second page and that in the first half 2010 they has none. SA is a big city and not to have at least one is odd

    Yep, and as usual, mommy was bemoaning the fact that her precious baby got shot and killed. Why did that mean girl have to shot him with his own gun????? She was a mean girl! He was only 20 years old and loved his little baby girl. Never mind that he was a gang banger. That mean girl should have run away and not murdered her little gang banger 20 YO because he was a good boy and loved his momma and his little baby girl.

    I like it...every green dot means many fewer red dots...right?
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
