Houston Dad kills daughter’s boyfriend…will he be charged?

What if one of your children woke you up at 2AM and said someone was in his sister’s bedroom? What would you do? A Houston dad got his gun and confronted the young man. His daughter said she did not know the man, and when the young man made a move the dad shot him in the head. The boy was killed and the daughter confessed that the dead young man was her boyfriend. Was the father within his rights? This morning I saw relatives of the dead young man lamenting their loss. They said he did not deserve to die like that, and they are right, but he should not have sneaked into the girl’s house. He has lost his life for a night of fun and the girl has to live with the fact that her lie might have cost him his life. It is a sad story but we all make choices and that night the young man made what would become a deadly choice.

    If everything is as we’ve been told, the father cannot be held responsible. I’d have done probably what he did, with the exception of maybe I would have had the young man S-L-O-W-L-Y get out of the bed and lie down on the floor. I want to see as much of a suspect as I can, and if he’s under the sheets that’s just asking for trouble. The daughter has to live with the fact that her lie cost someone their life, and that family will need lots of counseling.
