Review of Castle Doctrine Cases

Recent cases relating to castle laws | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Texas Regional News Some of the recent Castle Doctrine cases in Texas and beyond.

The review includes one real piece of irony.
State Rep. Borris Miles of Houston – who voted against Texas' castle law – shot and wounded a man he said was trying to steal copper from his new home in July. Mr. Miles was upstairs in the home, then still under construction, when he heard noise downstairs. He found two men cutting pipes. When he yelled, one threw a pocketknife, and Mr. Miles, who has a concealed-handgun permit, shot the man in the leg. He was not charged in the case.
You have to wonder how he feels about the Castle Doctrine now that it has come to his defense.

Self-defense is a human right, and the Castle Doctrine makes your legal right as well.
