Texas store owner arrested after killing robber



Houston Chronicle article



quote:

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — The owner of a South Texas convenience store has been arrested for murder after shooting a man attempting to steal beer from his shop.

Rodney James Duve was being held Sunday in the Nueces County jail with bond set at $35,000. Corpus Christi police say a 39-year-old man came into his store Saturday evening and took a 12-pack of beer before attempting to flee.

The 52-year-old Duve was arrested at the store. The robbery suspect, who has not been identified, was taken to a hospital where he died.

Seems a little aggressive to shoot someone attempting to shoplift.

Why kill a man over a 14 dollar twelve pack of beer?

Exactly.

Guy was shoplifting beer and got hit with bullets.

This ain't the Wild West.

That's the key phrase here. I'm guessing the guy was probably shot in the back.

Don't steal, there is no excuse. If you do then there are consequences.

You can't kill the guy for shoplifting.
But if the cops were around and could be relied upon the stop these petty crimes instead of writing inspection sticker tickets or rolling stop sign citations.....
maybe he wouldn't feel the need to take the law into his own hands.

I blame cops and Obama.
Thanks obama.

Why shoot someone who isn't armed? Or is fleeing with their back to you?

"Come into my shop and enjoy my services. I will greet any patron as if they're my neighbor and friend. But, if you cross me I will not hesitate to frickin plug your ass!"

My favorite kind of message.

Nah, taking his life sounds like the right thing to do here.

re: Texas store owner arrested after killing robber


Didn't a guy get away with killing a hooker that took his money, but didn't give him the sex? This happened in Texas. He got away with it because there is a law there that you can kill someone if you are trying to recover your stolen property at night. This seems to fit this law.
