As I said, I think the Texas law doesn't provide strict enough scrutiny to the shooter in this situation. As far as I can tell, we agree on that.

What I won't do is pretend that anyone but Torres and Ortiz made the decision that their lives were worth less than somebody's property. Horn didn't decide that. Texas didn't decide that. Torres and Ortiz did.

I also imagine that if the shooter had also been dark-skinned, nobody would have ever heard about this story, and that bugs me.
