HOUSTON – The Seabrook-area doctor who killed his neighbor was in court in Houston Monday. The question is whether Karl Hormann committed murder. There’s no argument that the dead man, Brandon Smith, 36, trespassed on Hormann’s property during a private party. He was warned to leave, but Hormann — who shot Smith three times, killing him — appeared to do so in the public street, not on his property
The website for Brandon Smith has links to the 911 call. You can hear the shots that killed Brandon and more. It’s sick. Why Hormann had to leave his house and follow Brandon down the street is beyond me. The police had been called. Their sirens can be heard in the call. Go back into the house and let them do their job.
We live in a gun nut society. Unfortunately someone has to pay for this. As I have said before:
On one hand the shooter just had to stay in his house and wait for the police. Instead he followed the victim down the street then shot him claiming self defense, just like Zimmerman. On the other hand we live in a state where you can shoot someone in the back if they are stealing your neighbors property (Joe Horn in Pasadena). Texans believe in shooting first, taking the law and their guns into their own hands. They love their guns and the Tea Party will defend that right to bear and use arms to the death, literally.
