A black Texas law maker wants to change the state’s self-defense laws to return to the days when you were required to try to run away from an attacker. From NewsMax:
Democratic state Rep. Garnet Coleman told the station the Texas legislature went too far in 2007 when it removed the â€śduty to retreat before using deadly forceâ€ť clause from the law, which gives citizens a green light to defend themselves, or stand their ground, rather than run from a confrontation. He said the change in wording had a disproportionate impact on minorities.
Maybe that is because minorities commit a disproportionate percentage of crimes.
