Illegal immigrants should feel safe now, as they no longer need to pick threw your trash in looking for an old gas bill or phone bill to get your info, now they can walk into your house and help them selves, As the democRATS say they are our new Americans. What would you do if some one who is here illegally walked into your house and treating to harm you or even kill you? It happens here in Massachusetts all the time.

Hey JP,
Your boss is going to get a report from your network administrator letting him know that you are a waste of time at work. But then again he may thank-you for this, the less you work, the less things you screw up...

***Prosecutors fear castle law's 'presumption' will allow real murderers to go free***

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/n...

For many Texas legislators, last year's castle law seemed like a no-brainer. Anyone breaking into your home, car or business poses a grave threat; you should have the right to shoot first and ask questions later.

The new law has yet to see its day in court, but that day is coming. Homicide cases that pivot upon it could emerge by the middle of this year.

Meanwhile, some prosecutors worry the law will cause more confusion than clarity in the courtroom.
----------

Leave it lawyers to screw up a simple concept.

Some prosecutors shouldn't be permitted to teach kindergarten, much less practice law.

Sounds to me like the prosecutors are crying because they will actually have to work for a living. It should also cut back on the number of "convictions" obtained by Dallas County that are incorrect and being reversed by current DNA testing. Right now the rate of "convicts" being set free from prison because of DNA testing after being found "guilty" in Dallas County is higher that the reset of the nation combined.

no. you can't even get it for killing your mom.
you will , however, get more public outrage crying for bears living under people's porch than mothers who murder their children.
