Search for Texas vigilante who fatally shot robbery suspect carrying fake gun

I never said he was wrongfully accused. Im saying the founding fathers made the 6th amendment for variety of reasons, including ability to protect those wrongfully accused. So by that logic, even the most evil criminals have a right to a fair trial.

Additionally, im also not defending the criminal but simply against the precedent these types of actions might set for the future. Our constitution grants us the right to defend ourselves and state laws often extend on that and say we can defend ourselves until the threat is neutralized.

After the 8th shot, the shooter walked up to the "threat" with his own two feet, disarmed him, and fired the 9th shot. Essentially denying the criminal's own constitutional rights to a fair trial, in which under current laws wouldnt have been a death sentence
