Man shoots arrow into prowler’s posterior

While it may have been a heck of a good shot, methinks there is somewhat of a chance that the legal system might make him will wish that he didn’t do that.

And there may be a good reason for the legal system to do that. I'm afraid that I don't have much sympathy for wannabe cops.

A quick story. A friend of mine was driving a semi on a windy day. He noticed a persistent tailgater. When he stopped for fuel, the car followed him, and pretty soon a DOT official appeared and informed my friend that he had received a report of "erratic driving". After a short and cordial conversation in which the phrases "windy day" and "wannabe cop" were used, that was the end of it.

So while I think it's great that neighbors watch out for each other, shooting someone in the butt goes a bit past my threshold of vigilant behavior. Given the information we have, there's more cause to charge the shooter than the "apparent" thief.

Greetings from Texas,
I'm with Steve on this one. Chasing the jerk away from the house next door is fine. Even putting an arrow into the tree next to where he's standing sends the message and he isn't likely to call the cops over that. 'Giving him the shaft' (I couldn't resist) after chasing him off property is out of line not to mention reckless.
Pinning the guy to the window frame he just crawled through, at least in this part of Texas, won't cause you any more problems than blood stains.

"Giving him the shaft"

ACK! Art, you outdid me by a mile. I tried for over an hour to come up with a snarky line for this story and could not do it.

I salute you!
