Just out of curiosity if I ever end up in Texas. If someone steals my property while I'm in the state, do I have carte blanche to chase them and get it back?

pretty much, yeah...  I think you can even shoot them in the back if they are running away with your property still in their hands...   I cite the case of a local man shooting at a guy trying to steal a potted plant from his front yard...  He was a poor aim but the cops had no problem with the transaction of bullets for potted plants...

Somethings not right about this story. First of all, how did he know they were intolerant, maybe they just liked the flag and decided to take it, not everything is a damn hate crime. Second, the guy wouldn't have been allowed to see the juveniles while they were in police custody, only a parent or guardian can do that.

Let's put it this way. At the start of this summer, a guy in San Antonio who had hired an escort under the explicit understanding that escorts don't provide sexual services, then shot and killed that escort who didn't have sex with him to, as he said, retrieve the money he'd paid her for a service he knew she wouldn't provide, was found not guilty for this, as the jury agreed that he'd only shot her to recover his property. Be fair-skinned and be a man and you can pretty much get away with damn near anything in this state, so long as it isn't unionizing or property crime, and so long as you do it to a woman or a non-white man.

After reading this article my cubical became SUDDENLY dusty

that being said, from reading the article, nothing will happen. It's a slap on the wrist as far as the kids go and I have my doubts they actually "learned" anything.

Good on the guy though for doing something about it, even (like i said) if nothing major will happen/they will stop stealing shiat.

hardinparamedic: Let's get this out of the way

HOW DARE THEY!

Those people are the REAL intolerant bigots! How dare they stifle those children from expressing their first amendment rights!


I tried real hard for about 5 seconds to imagine the straw person you created actually existing on Fark. Then I realized you wanted to troll but were too lazy to log into one of your alts and actually form an entertaining (to us troll aficionados)  post.

Having said that let me bite on your lazy imagined non troll and say I'm really perplexed by the fark mods nowadays. Why is this spiffy? It honestly seems like there's an agenda on greenlinks for the past year or three. A gay agenda. Not that there's anything wrong with that. There really isn't.

I'm totally for gay marriage. I didn't even know those silly queers wanted to make honest butt buddies of themselves until it got brought up in the media. But when it did I said hell yeah let them get married. Medical issues, financial/estate planning issues, for two people engaged in long term monogamous sodomy it just makes sense to get married. I'm all for it. Rah-rah hellz yeah.

But this is some stupid kids who saw an awesome flag and decided to steal it. I want to mount that flag on my wall too. It just looks so awesome. And I'm too lazy to buy one. I get where they're coming from.  I don't see anti-gay bigotry here.

But I do see a guy who got pissed his flag was stolen, and instead of just helping to catch the jackoffs who stole it and prosecute them, tried to turn it into a homo-teachable moment and alerted the media. Those kids are laughing at him now not because he's gay, but because he's a dork.

And it's not spiffy. It's just lame and dorkey. No homo.

I highly invite the modmins to out any post under an "alt" that I've made. Or can't see the fact that I'm mocking people who come into threads, like  tenpoundsofcheese, who like to tell people because they're intolerant of bigotry that they are the REAL bigots?

I didn't really mean to lend momentum to people ridiculing the people of the South. The dental hygeine jokes can be especially demeaning and innapropriate. After all - few know this, but the toothbrush was actually invented in the deep South.

I feel the need to point out something that seems to have eluded others here.

As per the article:
He followed the car until he was close enough to get the license plate number.
If he had been wearing shoes, Gutierrez said, he would have gotten out and asked for the flag back then and there, and that would have been it.
Instead he rolled down his window and told the kids, "I saw you." Then he drove off and let the Kennedale police take over.

Are you freaking serious? A troll? Really?

I've lived in Texas for 20+ years, and this summer has definitely shown me that women mean nothing unless they want an abortion. Then we're called whores for that and told to close our legs.

Hispanics are considered illegals or anchor babies. I'm half Hispanic but took after my father's side and look white as can be, and whenever I go to a Whole Foods with my children and mom, I'm complimented on what good English skills my nanny has and asked what part of Mexico she comes from and if I taught her the English she knows. My mom was born in Texas. Her family was born in Texas. They lived in Texas when Texas was still Mexico and stayed in Texas when it won its independence.

Blacks are still assumed thugs unless they have a business suit on. When I was robbed 2 years ago, the first thing the 911 operator asked was, "Was the perpetrator black or Hispanic?" The guy was white! When I had to identify the guy in a police line up, the cops said it was easy to catch white criminals b/c they don't commit much crime.

But that's not how Texas is at all. Never! Give me a farking break. Tune into reality when you get a chance.

I'm guessing that the story left out the part where the guy brokered a deal with the teens' parents: "If you let me give your kids a lecture, I won't press charges."  I don't know that that happened, but it's my best guess as to why he was allowed to see them in police custody.

You are mistaken. Now that I'm retired, I work as a part-time nanny-complementor at the local Whole Foods. It's a service they have offered for a while now - it does wonders for the self-esteem of insecure upper-middle-class white people, and loosens their purse strings. It makes them feel egalitarian and "effective" at the same time.
I make that exact same comment to Princ3ss and others like her a dozen times a day.
