  1. Ron White once said, “If you kill someone in Texas, we will kill you back. Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty… mine’s putting in an express lane.” Good luck with the 3 on 1 self-defense story.

  2. UNBELEIABLE! I followed the story and among many of the comments were those saying it was self defense because the security guy pushed someone first. So, it is self defense for three on one to stomp and kick a man to death because he pushed first? Those who think that are just as much lower animals as the three who did it.

  3. That’s just like saying a police officer that pushes you out of a business your being trespassed from deserves to be stomped to death because you are defending yourself..that argument isn’t gonna hold water. 3 on 1 fight will never be considered self defense unless the one had a weapon and the 3 were not being asked to vacate the premises. I doubt they get the death penalty but they will serve time..
