There are times that the law should just look the other way. This is one of them.

So sad but I think he might be able to plea crime of passion or temporary insanity. Both of which are valid arguments in Texas if I remember right

Jury nullification

It's not the first time something like this happened......

It happened here in CA too, Ellie Nessler killed the guy right inside the courtroom who molested her 6 year old son. As I recall she used a Beretta .25 ACP and smuggled it in (this was before metal detectors were installed).

I cant imagine what that must be like. I have 2 daughters and a son and I dont know if I could control my urges if something similar happened to me.

I am not sympathetic to any ill that befalls a drunk driver. They kill more innocent people than they do themselves, that being said I hope the guy gets off easy as possible.

Very sad set of circumstances.
A jury could find him not guilty be reason of many things. They have latitude.

sounds open and shut make legel gun owners look bad

He will get off with a temporary insanity plea. Who can convict a man who just lost his family? So many times throughout the US people have been found not guilty in such cases. In New Orleans a man killed the murderer of his children on national TV and was found not guilty.
