Marijuana Grower Shot SWAT Cops Who Kicked Down His Door

In the pre-dawn raid, that occurred on December 19th, 2013, Henry Goedrich Magee, like many residents of Burleson County, Texas, had a gun in the house. When Magee heard his door being broken down, he reached for his gun.

The police wanted to throw the proverbial book at him, but after hearing the evidence, a grand jury determined that Magee should not be charged in the shooting death of one of those officers.

Kinda surprising. He must have had one helluva lawyer, and an ACTUAL jury of his peers.

Actually if a grand jury decided not to press charges he never was represented by an attorney.  In  grand jury a prosecutor explains the law to the grand jury members and then they decide if charges should be filed.

Apparently the GJ members felt that if your in your home and someone breaks in your door you have the right to defend yourself.

But usually not if the attacker is an only one. Bravo for this Texas grand jury.

What's amazing is that after the thug was killed, the rest didn't murder the man and his pregnant girlfriend, stomp their kittens, shoot their dogs, and burn the house down.

Silver, that is exactly what surprises me the most about the incident.

Texas has some of the strongest "castle doctrine" laws in the country.  If someone is ransacking your neighbor's house, you can go over there and shoot them.  So there is a strong undercurrent of "if you bust into someone's house, you're asking to get shot."

The joke is that "He wanted killin' " is a valid defense in Texas.

The Castle Doctrine is indeed strong in Texas; you can shoot to defend your property, while in most states you have to at least claim you were in fear for your life.  I'm not sure I'd shoot someone over any thing I own, but I'm not in a position to judge how important a particular piece of private property is to its owner. 

Walking or driving up a stranger's driveway is risky business in Texas; there are protocols and etiquette that reduce, but do not eliminate, the chances of getting shot.  I've never seen such polite utility workers.  The census lady was another story, but she was new to Texas and lived in Austin; she probably didn't realize the extreme risks she was taking with her snooping and refusal to leave when asked.

Peace,

I lived for a while next to an American Indian reservation in the California desert. Only a few had telephones then, but even if you called ahead you didn't just go up to the door, you stayed in your car or stood on the road until someone in the house came out to greet you. If they didn't want company, they just didn't come out.

A good many people in the surrounding areas went by the same courtesy. You could always tell an outsider... because they'd come onto the porch and ring the doorbell or knock. Probably a good thing not many of us were armed then...

Most of the folks I met in Texas were extremely polite, so I just figured that everyone was armed.
Good bless Texas.

When the police dont get any resistance they're bold. But after one of them get shot, it is another story...

Younger brother visits older brother in Texas.  Younger brother stays out late, gets drunk, looses house key and tries one of the windows.  As he tries to let in his upper body, older brother shoots younger brother.  Younger brother dies.

screws both up for the rest of their life and both are and were friends of me.

Still believe that one's castle is rightfully protected by one.

I will skip the platitudes and go right to the heart of the matter.


Yes I still whole heartedly believe that I should protect my castle. 

A guy that violates a basic firearm safety rule and kills his brother does not invalidate my or anyone else's right and need to protect themselves, their castle, their life and property.

Never ever shoot at something when you do not know what it is.  Dark shadow climbing in a window?   Try using a flashlight or turning on a light.  Try yelling "HEY!!! I HAVE A GUN!!! GO AWAY!"  But you do not shoot at an unidentified target.

Unless you are a cop and you're scared.
