Nexxo thanks for taking the time to explain your arguments it helps to shine light on what your true concern was. From reading I think your main concern is why they chose to charge him with murder when it in all likelihood wasn't but was a case of manslaughter, except the boys claim it was a murder which creates outrage. Although I agree that its rather important to make sure people are not using excessive force for no good reason, and forensic's might shine light on what could of happened but given the events I don't think the state felt they could satisfy the parents with a manslaughter case and also I doubt they wanted to. In there eyes this story reinforces the idea that in texas its very dangerous to commit crimes especially inside someones home. Only Mr. Gonzalez knows whether his force was justified. There is a good chance he made a over zealous decision and didn't need to shoot , the boys should not of broken into his house that is a fact. On a side note how did we get on the topic of immigration? Mr Gonzalez is obviously Hispanic and based on the names so are the boys... so how did this come up? Ill give my opinion either way . I live in Texas have most of my life and I do see that the current immigration is an issue and I have no idea how to fix it honestly, we need the cheap labor and yes it does affect the job market some on the lower levels, I think more jobs most Americans would be willing to work are taken away by outsourcing to India then by illegal immigrants. Shooting at people trying to cross doesn't make sense, attacking the smugglers and drug dealers maybe, but not in a mercenary fashion we need to work with there home governments to pursue them legally. Yet none of this I think will ever fix it the only solution I see is to either open up all the boarders and legalize all the drugs, and destroy there income. Or we can lock down the entire country, but then who is gonna do the jobs Americans gladly turn down?
