I don’t know what side to take on this. On the one hand, I think I should be able to defend myself. On the other, it does seem that the shootings were kind of cold-blooded and may not have been necessary. Hard to tell if I wasn’t there. Either way, this is turning into an escalating controversy.
Protest over slain burglars takes a confrontational turn
Supporters of Pasadena man who shot two try to drown out Quanell X rally
— Houston Chronicle2
Activist Quanell X and dozens of other protesters Sunday faced hundreds of homeowners and supporters of Joe Horn, the Pasadena man who shot and killed two men he suspected of burglarizing a neighbor’s home more than two weeks ago.
Families of the slain men, Miguel Antonio DeJesus, 38, and Diego Ortiz, 30, also were present.
Yard signs lined the 7400 block of Timberline in Pasadena, where the incident took place, as well as on nearby streets.
Residents and Horn supporters waved American flags and carried signs reading, “We love our neighbor for protecting our neighbors” and “Burglary is a risky business.”
