The Field Negro breaks down Joe Horn’s killing of two Houston burglars
The Field Negro has an interesting breakdown of the transcript of Houston vigilante Joe Horn's 911 call. As many of you know, Horn shot (in the back) and killed two young men who were robbing his neighbor. Horn's actions have been hailed by some Houstonians as heroic.
CALLER: He's going out the window right in and out of. I've got to go, buddy. I'm sorry but he's coming out the window.
911 Operator: Don't go out the door. Mr. Horn?
CALLER: They just stole something. I'm going out the door. I ain't going to let them get away with this. They stole something. They got a bag of cash. I'm doing it.
911 Operator: Mr. Horn, do not go out of the house.
CALLER: This ain't right, buddy.
911 Operator: You are going to go outside the house if you go out the house with a gun. Stay in the house.
CALLER: They're getting away.
911 Operator: That's all right. Property's not worth killing someone over, okay?
CALLER: Damn it.
