Cyclist shoots back

2021-07-08 17:35:02.010056+02 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I might yet come around on this Texas "everybody gets to concealed carry" thing: Texas cyclist shoots driver who deliberately crashed into his riding partner

The motorist, 26-year-old Jose Angel Hernandez, is alleged to have shouted at a couple cycling to get off the road as he drove his vehicle at a woman, apparently on purpose.

The man she was riding with then opened fire on the driver –carrying a concealed weapon is permitted in Texas under licence, although even that requirement will be scrapped from 1 September.

A police officer at the scene was reported as saying: “He was in fear of his life, and he was trying to defend himself.”

Isn't that the standard Texas "He needed killin!" defense?

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation.

Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
