Joe Horn Should Be Charged With A Serious Crime
Pasadena, Texas resident Joe Horn made the decision to go outside and shoot two people.
This took place on November 14 and has now become a national incident.
The two people he shot were two men robbing the house next to Mr. Horn’s home.
Mr. Horn had been asked by a 911 dispatcher to stay inside and avoid violence. He was not in any physical danger inside his house.
Mr. Horn said right on the 911 tape that he was going to go outside and shoot the men.
And that’s just what he did as the men left the home they were robbing.
He made the decision to go outside and shoot. The penalty for robbing a home is not death.
How is that not some kind of pre-meditated act of violence?
The case is very polarizing and debate on this issue is not always very illuminating. I’ve been reluctant to post about the matter.
Yet I think it is important that Mr. Horn be charged with some type of serious crime in this instance.
Beyond the fact that Mr. Horn could have just as easily been killed himself or shot an innocent, we can’t have people killing over property when they had the option to avoid trouble.
