    Post Houston Vigilants Might be Lucky? GSD Gets Dinner?

    I just don't know what some people think, if they even have half a brain:

    Houston robbery victim wants to thank Good Samaritans who came to his rescue | kvue.com Austin

    This is an interesting example of vigilantism perhaps, or at least an example of someone half-again too helpful. Or maybe half-again too clever. Notwithstanding that, I had a serious laugh when the culprit threw himself over a fence into the waiting jaws of an irate GSD.

    Houston is a place I've been several times. It just gets more interesting every day.

    I love the way he put this: "Im totally at the mercy of my saviors."

    2 men in a Mercedes track down the robber and shoot him. Is that legal in Texas?

    Glad I live here in West Virginia where it's safe.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Good for the Samaritans. Let's hope an overzealous DA trying to pad his numbers doesn't prosecute them for firing a handgun. Don't forget, the BG can also sue saying he was profiled. What a @!@$* legal system.

    What kind of car were your rescuers driving?

    It was a pink 4x4 with a lift kit.

    "...he will recover"

    Shame, that.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Talk about a bad day at the office, you do a hold up and two guys not involved, start shooting at you, then you make a run for it and a dog starts giving you trouble and end up at a hospital.

    I dont believe in guns, said Dorsey. I dont own a gun. Im totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldnt protect myself.
