The brother didn't have to say that, because the family always insists the decedent was a law-abiding citizen and couldn't possibly commit any misdemeanor, let alone a felony.Also that his brother wouldn't have bothered to bring up that the alleged thief owned nearly the same truck and was just honestly mistaken when complaining that his brother didn't deserve to get shot for shooting a guy reclaiming his property.
IMO I've never seen @SteveGrabowski behave "unreasonably" in other threads. I shouldn't speak for him, but I don't believe he's saying that property rights trump a person's life. Outside of the OP, very few people are cheering an alleged car thief's death. The consensus is that most of us would have handled this differently, but bear in mind that we are not a proverbial "good guy (Texan) with a gun."He put himself in that situation when he didn't have to, then killed a guy. He even brought a fucking gun which means he thought he might have to use it. Why are you defending him?
