"TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT.SURVIVORS WILL BE RESHOT!! SMILE I WILL."
That was the sign on Gayle and Sheila Muh's property in Liberty County, Texas. Seems like they are serious about property rights down in the -soon to be-country of Texas. You all remember the case of old Joe Horn (Didn't he play for the Saints?) down in Houston, right? He walked free and is now appearing at a "Tea Party" near you after killing a couple of illegals who were breaking into his neighbor's home.
Anyway, back to the Muhs. Unfortunately the Coffey family either didn't see the sign or chose to ignore it, and as a result, it cost their seven year old son his life. The poor little guy died at a Houston hospital just a couple of days after being struck in the head with shot gun pellets.
Apparently this unsuspecting family had the nerve to be off- roading near the Muh's property and stopped to go to the bathroom. According to the Houston Chronicle the couple fired when they "mistakenly" thought the family was trespassing on their property. And apparently in the great state of Texas, killing trespassers is a family sport.
"Liberty County Chief Deputy Ken DeFoor said Sheila Muhs fired a 12-gauge shotgun once, then handed it to her husband who also fired once." (It's a good thing that they[the Muhs] didn't have kids or the whole [Coffey] family would have been wiped out. The family that shoots together stays together) "DeFoor said Sheila Muhs then called 911 and told the dispatcher: They are out here tearing up the levee, so I shot them." See folks, in Texas, levees are very important. But there is just one little problem; the levee in question belonged to the subdivision and was not on private property.
So now a seven year old is dead; a family friend is in serious condition; and a wounded father is left to mourn the loss of his son. But hey, that's how they roll in Texas. I bet governor "good hair"loved this story.
You know Governor, I was thinking; maybe that Ordinance Of Secession wasn't such a bad idea.
