Drinking and Drugs Are Bad for Your Health

KCBD - Toxicology Reports Released for Texas Tech Student Shot and Killed in Tech Terrace Get stoned and drunk and wander into the wrong house and there is a chance you will be treated like the intruder you are.
Toxicology reports now show Baker had a blood alcohol level of .165, which is more than twice the legal limit. There was also evidence of marijuana in his system.
While I will bend far enough to admit this is a tragedy, I feel the homeowner was justified in defending himself against an intruder.

This drunk and stoned college kid entered the home "in the early morning hours." What was that? 3 AM? What would you have done?

Texas is in a gray area. The law has been passed and signed, but doesn't take effect until September first of this year. (Why is that?) Still I believe that if someone breaks into your home in the middle of the night, you are justified in defending yourself.
