  • Texas Security Officer: 2, robbers: Zip

    Some people just need killin....(Another example of what I love about my state).

    A security guard used an assault rifle to kill two robbery suspects at a Red Bird strip mall late Wednesday, police said.
    Sgt. Beaudreault said the deaths of the two suspected robbers will be referred to a grand jury. But it is unlikely that a grand jury will indict Mr. Howard because state law allows a person to use deadly force to prevent being robbed.

    State law also does not require that someone retreat before using deadly force to defend themselves in their homes, cars or places of business.

      Just for kicks, this is an old one from June, shows that we do actually apply the Assault of a public servant law here.

        I'll bet Howard gets a call from TCOPS, asking why he was carrying an unauthorized weapon on duty. I can't even keep my Maverick Pump in my car.

          When did that happen? Except for a 2 month long span 4 years ago I've been out of private security for a long time. we were taught when I got my Commision card (took the class when I worked at Wackenhut, back in '96) that you don't need a license for a long arm (Shotgun, Rifle) so long as it's not a prohibited weapon. Did something change?

          EDIT: I just skimmed through the Occupatuons code section regarding Private Security and couldn't find anything, same with the penal code.

          is it maybe some TCOPs rule but not a matter of law?

              "She said he was a good kid," Sgt. Beaudreault said.

              Isn't that what they always say? "Yep, he was a good kid. Well, he does have his habit of shoving guns in peoples faces and relieving them of their wallets. But other than that..."

                  They tried, very hard, to put a negative slant on this. Even funnier, they couldn't find enough to do so.

                  Only negative slant they could use was that its "unusual" for security guards to carry "assault rifles," and that "his momma said he was a good boy."

                    wow, a 20 yr old kid killed two robbers. That is crazy. I also bet it wasn't an assault rifle, but who knows. 11 shots, 2 dead all for a laptop. What company does this guard work for? He seemed on the ball.

                      Interesting. Here in Louisiana the average armed SO doesn't have access to long arms. The State makes security companies jump through all kinds of specila license rules to do so. That means that, except for the occasional armored car guard you won't see many SOs with rifles/shotguns. When Blackwater brought in a bunch of its mercs after Katrina the State granted them an emergency exemption so they could tote their carbines.

                        The Dallas Morning News isn't rabidly anti-police or even anti- security compared to a great many other news outlets I know of. They can't be,, while the City of Dallas is "fairly" liberal, the bulk of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex isn't and DMN tries to walk a line.

                        I didn't personally see that article as trying to be negative at all, it's on par with what DMN usually puts out.

                          can you imagine if the LA Times picked it up?

                            To further Illustrate the point (although this on involves a regular private citizen, not a S/O). Here in Texas we take the right to defend one's self and one's property VERY seriously, unlike much of the rest of the country.

                            Property Owner kills 2 burglars in 3 weeks

                            Police said Mr. Walton is allowed to protect his property. No charges were filed against him Sunday, though the case will be referred to a grand jury, police said.

                            "He's got a right to defend his property. What gives a stranger the right to go in and vandalize or burglarize his business?" said Dallas police Sgt. Gene Reyes. "He's within every legal right to do this."
