    Default Armed Mugger shot dead

    I would describe this as the "feel good" story of the day for me, as justice was served, imo.

    05:47 PM CDT on Monday, August 30, 2010

    By AVI SELK / The Dallas Morning News
    aselk@dallasnews.com

    A man shot his alleged mugger to death in South Dallas early Friday morning, according to police records.

    Nicholas Lewis, 22, who lived on Cleveland Street, died in the hospital a few hours after he allegedly held up Jeffrey Hall, 43, in the 1800 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.

    Nicholas Lewis pointed a semiautomatic pistol at Jeffrey Hall and demanded his wallet, according to a police report. Jeffrey Hall told police he handed his wallet to Mr. Lewis, who started to ride away on a bicycle.

    But Mr. Lewis then turned, according to police, and fired at Jeffrey Hall missing him and striking his pickup.

    Mr. Hall then pulled out his licensed pistol and shot Lewis multiple times, according to police. Hall shot Lewis in the torso, the buttocks and the head, according to Lewis' sister, who says she watched him die at Baylor Medical Center at Dallas a few hours later.

    Lt. David Pughes of the Dallas Police Department said police so far had no reason to doubt Hall's claim that he shot Lewis in self-defense. But it would be up to a grand jury to decide whether to file any charges, Pughes said. Reached at home, Hall declined to comment.

    Latasha Lewis said that her brother "had his shortcomings," but that she could not believe he fired at Hall.

    "I'm not justifying him robbing," she said. "He was wrong if that's what he did. But if he drove off on his bicycle, the best thing you could have done was to call the police."

    -----------------------------------------------

    No Latasha, once you have been fired upon, you can certainly return fire..... Just ask any policeman what he would do once he is fired upon.... Citizens have at least the same rights of protection, as do the police.

    So some guy got himself killed over some fucking wallet.

    Things like that make me want for the sun to hurry up and wipe out all of us.

    .
    she can't believe that someone who points a semi automatic at someone is capable of shoooting someone? The whole family is pretty f-ing stupid it seems.

    I'm not a gun guy at all but anytime a dangerous criminal is taking off the streets i'm in favour of it. I'm glad the piece of shit got shot.

    That's a good idea, make a phone call while someone's trying to kill you. You shouldn't try to defend yourself or anything like that. Come on you guys!

    You gotta love Texas. I wish California would grow some balls and adapt some of their laws.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    In many states, you are legally able to shoot a robber or intruder unless they turn and run. Not here in Texas, you can shoot them in the back!

    Call 911 my ass! And then stand around and wait forever for them to get there?

    My Dad had a guy charge at him once in Las Vegas. Dad drew his 45 and the guy rapidly changed his mind, put his head down and ran around my Dad.

    Dad said it was freaky because there isn't much time to decide to shoot or not to shoot. Obviously, Dad decided not to shoot but that particular thugs life at that point was decided by fractions of a second.
