    Not too bright is he? The funny part is he went back to bed as if nothing happened.

    How's that? The shooter may have a lacked attitude. You should refrain from lumping all Texans with the shooter. Texas charged the shooter with murder.

    if you had read beyond the headlines you would have known that.

    The legal system will deal with the 72 year old shooter.
    Is this story horrific because he went back to bed?
    Why was the guy on his property? What time of night? Was the shooter in danger?
    What could have happened if the 72 year old guy didn’t have a gun? Is it possible he could have been killed or hurt?

    James Meyer didn't go back to sleep. He claims he went back to sleep.


    The affidavit says Meyer’s wife called an attorney for advice before her husband called 911.

    Meyer refused to answer the 911 dispatcher's questions, the Morning News reports, apparently stressing he was the victim of a crime.

    The Morning News also reports that Meyer told police he threw the bullet shell casings in the trash.

    James Meyer very likely lied about going back to sleep, but most importantly he disturbed the crime scene and sought-out legal advice before calling the police.

    in due time, I suspect we'll find-out much more about the circumstance that implored the SA to file charges. Things they know, that you & I do not.

    Yep, it's likely that it took a while to get in touch with an attorney - they are typically not available at 5AM. The attorney also likely advised him not to be too specific with his 911 (or later) comments to police.

    Disturbing the crime scene was unwise - talking to an attorney, however, was wise.

    True. Disturbing the crime scene wasn't a good move, either.

    Plus we don't know if there's an established relationship between the two men.
