wow didn't know this type of stuff was back. Left Houston back during all the Rolex robberies in mid 90s. They're prob kin to the same guys that robbed my store and pistol whipped customers. And NO not everyone has insurance! Saw too many fellow business owners killed down there, so glad the man picked off a few of the bad guys

Just stop posting please! I'm sure you would have really been thinking about the innocent civilians outside as the reason to not protect yourself and your family. Sounds like you're the type to take it up the a$$ and not do a damn thing about it all for the sake of the innocent. Sure glad I'm not a part of your family when the ***** hits the fan.

Me, too, Topaz, I'm roundly criticized by my friends for being a "bleeding heart liberal" but I think Mr. Castillo acted intelligently, swiftly, and correctly.

These people aren't just robbing, they're killing, raping, maiming. And they are not deserving of any "humane" treatment, they are not "poor little lambs who have lost their way", they are menaces to society.

I'm all for getting the RIGHT ones, and I think the Police FREQUENTLY get the WRONG ones, and I think the Prosecutors are generally worthless--they're just trying to make a splash to get out of the Prosecutor's office--but when the individual citizen like Mr. Castillo is in personal danger (along with his family), there's no doubt who the "right ones" are--and he just saved himself and his family, while saving us a lot of money prosecuting their worthless ***ess, while keeping them from robbing somebody else later.

Oh, and I'm all about treating people fairly. These people were treated fairly. I hope their mama's are sobbing.

Well, maybe they could at least write Castillo a summons for exterminating vermin without a license.

Reminder to self: When next in Houston I must make my way to Canal and Super and buy my wife something nice.

That's what I thought. Think of how many crimes that will not happen now forward, now that they have been removed from earth - think how many victims Mr. Castillo saved, not just he and his wife.

As to their mothers sobbing, I hope they are not here to be on TV. I always hate it when they say "he was always such a good boy!" Not always, evidently.

HIs wife was already endangered,she was tied up and the were about to tie him up. Survival of the fittest,natural selection....This is the world we live in now-u better get ready for it. U would not have survived this incident. THis store is very close to where i live, i am very glad Mr. Catillo did what he had to to protect himself and his wife!!!

Default Right on...

Swift Texas Justice! An open and shut case all in one instance. The only 'bad' that will come out of this will be from people who consider Mr. Castillo the problem, not the hero.

The only solace for people who think like Robert' is that not much ink will be wasted, and not many trees will be used for paperwork.
