Repeal Article 1948 section 1222 of the Texas penal code!

         The countries highest standards are interpreting the severity of a crime very loosely. Lethal force, emphasis added, is to be used, as outlined by framers, by an officer who swears an oath to serve and protect. Or by the Nations' Guard-- the armed forces.

    Article 1948 section 1222 of law forbids fair trial. It has violated the very process of allowing a victim justice, such as David Crews of Arlington, Texas. He should have been presumed innocent in the legal justice systems' eyes. Felony burglary of a vehicle should not be punishable by death. Homicide is more severe of a crime. David Crews purportedly unlawfully burglarized a vehicle. Fair trial never took place. In my sound judgement, neither party was ever convicted of a crime. There is not any statute on homicide.

    Article 1948 section 1222 is wreckless and and malfeasant. Those who support it should have their state of mind called into question and to also be read the Riot Act. Who in their right state of mind, in sound judgement would allow someone to rob a child of his/her or their life, over theft? Article 1948 section 1222 is protecting pereptrators from the states right to hear any and all evidence, and for the accused to have a right to stand as such. It is also, furthermore, unlawful to aid or abet. Going further, it further places some another in harms way, due to the nature of revenge deaths. So that being stated, the law, broken, is allowing the general public to place itself in harms way. 

          Please sign to stress to lawmaking bodies, the importance of fair trial, the need for evidence, the rule of law, not anarchy, and to also urge them to consider repealing the of act  justifiable homicide-- Article 1948 section 1222. Your signatures will be forwarded to Texas' Speaker of the House Representatives Joe Straus.
