Also in Texas, if the surviving suspect is adjudicated as needing to go into the adult system, he can be charged with capital murder just like he pulled the trigger and killed his partner. I've seen that usd locally but I think it was an all adult case on a burglar a homeowner shot.

I was surprised that they released the name of a juvenile. As for the shooting, the perps knew this could happen yet they robbed the joint anyhow. So no sympathy on that from me.

Other than seeing young folks ruin their own lives & those of others. That always brings me down.

I haven't seen but the deceased 17 year old's name released. In Texas, he was not a juvenile as far as criminal conduct. At 17, you go to grown-up jail. Also, in every sort of case I dealt with, the attorneys told us to release the name of the dead person (if someone asked) as the deceased lose their right to privacy. I didn't think that was the professional and ethical thing to do, but "the law"....in this case he isn't a juvenile anyway.

Well not according to Michael Bloomberg... ;)

He claims only cops should have guns and decide when to shoot someone when asked about that Texas Church shooting.

Bloomberg: It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.

Isn't the nation lucky to have such a gifted sage to enlight all of us with his wisdom?

I think that doing robberies in TEXAS is a bad idea. I believe that the odds of getting shot by your victim are pretty dang high there.

Deciding to rob a store that's KNOWN for um, being trigger happy with criminals, increases ones odds of being shot while committing an armed felony.
