Re: Texas woman uses rifle to shoot, kill alleged 'Peeping Tom' caught peering into bedroom window
She murdered him for peeping in her window?


Does the punishment fit the crime?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80146937


Is it ok if someone just peeps at your mom, wife, daughter, Etc.?
No, and what if he decides it’s a touching thing…or worse….

I don’t agree with shooting through the wall….mainly because if you have neighbors and you don’t worry about beyond your target , you’ll accidentally kill your neighbors, their dog or someone else that’s an unintended target.

If she did it right, she would have called police….and only shooting if there was a real threat to her life, or he started to enter the home. Then stood her ground in the house with her firearm.
 Quoting: Patriot_In_Waiting


IF cops didn't have a bad track record of shooting the homeowner who makes the call, I'd tend to agree with you, but even in the best case scenario, their response time is measured in minutes, when you could die in seconds.

Maybe he was making a rapey-face at her when she caught him peeping? Or are you going to argue that he was just doing research for his school report?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 6954364


I’m not making any excuses for the pervert….just making the point that there may be unintended consequences. If I caught a man outside of my window peeping at my family….they wouldn’t have to worry about the police. But they’d meet my Shadow (150 lb German Shepherd) and myself.

Re: Texas woman uses rifle to shoot, kill alleged 'Peeping Tom' caught peering into bedroom window
I'm not advocating for men or boys to go peep in anybody's windows. All I'm saying is that maybe our society can give a little leeway to a curious teenager?

We have so "pussified" or, let me by more polite - "feminized" the males in our culture. We beat their "toxic masculinity" out at every turn. We're at the point now where a sexually curious kid now deserves a death sentence without a trial, judge or jury.

How much ore are we going to beat it out of them. You know, the west is going down the tubes because we don't raise men anymore. We shame and beat the testosterone out of them at every turn.

At the same time, we coddle the girls and give them a primadonna complex, telling them they have the right to, say, blow the brains out of a guy that looks at her.

I just don't like where this is going. But it's too late anyway.

Re: Texas woman uses rifle to shoot, kill alleged 'Peeping Tom' caught peering into bedroom window
You cant just kill people who are outside of your home with suspicion they are peeping. You should tell them to leave first and if they dont then you shoot them if you determine that they are a threat
 Quoting: Citrapop


Sure you can!

Didn't you read the story? She CAN do that. She did do that. It was done. He IS dead.

So you clearly can shoot people outside your home who don't belong there.

Now you could argue something might happen to her.

But 'she can't do that' is a really stupid statement.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74322544


Semantics.

Sure, go with the "shoot first and let God sort them out" attitude... see how that goes.

Someone looking into your window is not a death sentence, and no system based in common law would ever see that as an equivalency, especially in modern society with such high population density.

For what it's worth, my own mother lied to my father when they were in their 20's about a neighbor peeping into the windows. She also lied about having an abortion... She said she did it for attention, to test him.

He's right you know.

I keep a spike strip ordered from Galls [link to www.galls.com (secure)] on my driveway beneath the leaves near my home in the Autumn.

No one has any reason to drive all the way up to my home unless they are there for nefarious reasons.

The monthly UPS and FedEx deliveries have no reason to drive around to the back of my home so it presents no danger to them.

Anyone else...

Wow. That's very stringent of you. You wanna go around blowing people away for stuff like that, be my guest.

But I notice that nobody picked up on my point about destroying the masculinity of our boys. Don't you remember when it was a cute, normal and even expected thing that a boy might go try to catch a glimpse of a girl?

Why must we now become so stringent about that stuff. It's just kid stuff. It's just human nature. If that were your son, would you want his brains blown out by some paranoid woman?

Look. I had a break in about a year ago. I got my gun out, I called 911, I was terrified but I was willing to use the gun in self defense if necessary. But I would never try to shoot a fucking peeping Tom, FFS.

You are obviously arguing with a person who has PTSD, is triggered by this story and is incapable of recognizing that even in Texas, castle doctrine has limitations. I told the story about my niece serving 6 years on page 8 I think. If she had not pursued the man who had drugged and raped her, castle doctrine would have protected her. A good lawyer probably could have gotten her off the aggravated assault charge, but she had a court appointed attorney.

No, not "stringent" just reality. And, I would have taught my son personal responsibility from jump.

We did "pick up" on your unrelated topic, but as stated, it's unrelated. This is an issue of trespassing. Had he not trespassed, he would not have experienced these consequences.

How do you know that's how she characterized him? You don't know any more than I know if she feared for her life.

Concerning your last statement, are you projecting your morality onto others?

You should not shoot someone unless they are coming into your house or have made their intentions clear outside your house.

Intentions clear? How exactly, you mean by waiting for them to lodge a bullet in your brain?

Good info. Sorry to hear about her situation.

I was able to see the perps who broke in and then ran away....I didn't shoot.

If you're going to have a gun, I think you really need to meditate on how, when and if you'll use it. It's a serious thing. I would be heartbroken if I had to kill someone, for any reason. But I would do it under certain circumstances.

He's right you know.

I keep a spike strip ordered from Galls [link to www.galls.com (secure)] on my driveway beneath the leaves near my home in the Autumn.

No one has any reason to drive all the way up to my home unless they are there for nefarious reasons.

The monthly UPS and FedEx deliveries have no reason to drive around to the back of my home so it presents no danger to them.

Anyone else...

...they were coming right at me with a potential weapon in hand.
 Quoting: Louis in Richmond


We have a long driveway at my parents' house in the woods... a few people pull up trying to find someone else's home from time to time, then just turn around and go about their way.

It happens in the middle of the night, occasionally... but we don't have a gate so that's expected.

We are at the end of a 1/2 mile lane, the last house, so this happens from time to time.

That said, I have more firepower than most up there, but never thought once of using it unless I was literally threatened.

The Amish and the Menonites go for their after-church walks and cut through our land sometimes too...

At least around here, it wouldn't be a good idea to shoot people on your property by default... it would never fly in court of law.

I say that as someone that's lived in urban, suburban, and rural settings and has seen the way it typically plays out, legally.

She was under no immediate physical threat. Perp had not attempted or gained access to the residence. She recklessly and wantonly blasted through walls. She should and will absolutely be charged and tried.

Re: Texas woman uses rifle to shoot, kill alleged 'Peeping Tom' caught peering into bedroom window
I'm not advocating for men or boys to go peep in anybody's windows. All I'm saying is that maybe our society can give a little leeway to a curious teenager?

We have so "pussified" or, let me by more polite - "feminized" the males in our culture. We beat their "toxic masculinity" out at every turn. We're at the point now where a sexually curious kid now deserves a death sentence without a trial, judge or jury.

How much ore are we going to beat it out of them. You know, the west is going down the tubes because we don't raise men anymore. We shame and beat the testosterone out of them at every turn.

At the same time, we coddle the girls and give them a primadonna complex, telling them they have the right to, say, blow the brains out of a guy that looks at her.

I just don't like where this is going. But it's too late anyway.

Wow. That's very stringent of you. You wanna go around blowing people away for stuff like that, be my guest.

But I notice that nobody picked up on my point about destroying the masculinity of our boys. Don't you remember when it was a cute, normal and even expected thing that a boy might go try to catch a glimpse of a girl?

Why must we now become so stringent about that stuff. It's just kid stuff. It's just human nature. If that were your son, would you want his brains blown out by some paranoid woman?

Look. I had a break in about a year ago. I got my gun out, I called 911, I was terrified but I was willing to use the gun in self defense if necessary. But I would never try to shoot a fucking peeping Tom, FFS.
 Quoting: Off Grid AZ



You are obviously arguing with a person who has PTSD, is triggered by this story and is incapable of recognizing that even in Texas, castle doctrine has limitations. I told the story about my niece serving 6 years on page 8 I think. If she had not pursued the man who had drugged and raped her, castle doctrine would have protected her. A good lawyer probably could have gotten her off the aggravated assault charge, but she had a court appointed attorney.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 73121033


Good info. Sorry to hear about her situation.

I was able to see the perps who broke in and then ran away....I didn't shoot.

If you're going to have a gun, I think you really need to meditate on how, when and if you'll use it. It's a serious thing. I would be heartbroken if I had to kill someone, for any reason. But I would do it under certain circumstances.
 Quoting: Off Grid AZ


Yeah some people really should not be allowed near a gun let alone allowed to own one and the idiots in this thread prove that perfectly.

Right wing fantasizing. She will be lucky if she is not charged.



Nobody was trying to force entry so she can't show it was justification for use of deadly force.


This would not even hold up under castle law.



She should have called to police. If he was trying to gain entry, then it is a use of deadly force.



You guys should really brush up on your laws before you end up a soap boy in jail.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53089586


The guy is dead, so we don't have anything other than her word for it.

I don't see her defense holding... because an unarmed person outside that looks in the direction of the window is not a threat of deadly force.

People walk by my place all the time and when my blinds are down, they see me, and I see them.

Especially when the lights are on inside.

People walking by in the dark are naturally going to look in the direction of a lit window, it's how human vision works.

If the dude was literally jerking it at her windowsill, I say call the cops and keep the rifle at your side.

I can't see shooting through a wall at someone outside.

Re: Texas woman uses rifle to shoot, kill alleged 'Peeping Tom' caught peering into bedroom window
A Texas woman fired a rifle through the wall of her home Friday, killing a man who had allegedly been peeping into her window, police said.

"There was an adult female that was in one of the bedrooms who observed him looking into her window. She was in fear. She had a rifle. She shot numerous times through the wall, ending up striking the male. The male ran a little ways and passed out over here. He is dead on the scene," Houston police Lt. R. Willkens told reporters who arrived outside the house Friday night. "We're being told it was a peeping Tom."..
