Texas shocked by killing of Muslim motorist who pulled into man’s driveway

  • Terry Turner charged with murder of Moroccan Adil Dghoughi
  • Controversial stand-your-ground laws to be placed in spotlight

Guardian: Controversial laws in Texas that can effectively allow homeowners to kill people coming on to their property are to be thrown into the spotlight after the shocking case of a Moroccan man who was shot dead after pulling over in the driveway of a San Antonio-area house, possibly because he was lost.

Turner’s lawyers say they will defend their client under the rubric of Texas’s stand-your-ground law and castle doctrine that allows homeowners to use deadly force against someone on their property if the actions are seen as immediately necessary.

Stand-your-ground laws counter the notion that in the event of danger, one must retreat or run away. Rather, a person may “stand their ground” and justifiably defend themselves.

Critics of the laws say they lead to unnecessary deaths and are often a cover for racism. The first stand-your-ground law in the US was enacted in Florida in 2005, with heavy lobbying from the National Rifle Association (NRA). The law came under national scrutiny in the wake of the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, a Black teenager killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch person.

  1. Before jumping on the anti-gun bandwagon, make sure this is not another false flag, anti-gun event, of which there are a great many. As the story stands, the homeowner appears to me to be at fault, although I cannot condone the wisdom of chilling out in your car next to someone’s house at 3am. How stupid is that? In this day and age of wall-to-wall chaos, by all citizens, including “peace” officers, one can never be comfortable with what otherwise looks like people just chilling out.

    • I pulled into the end of a farm driveway to change a flat tire so I would not have cars travelling at highway speed passing me at a clearance of less than 2 feet if they stayed in their lane (no real shoulder). Would the farmer have been in his/her rights to shoot me from the house window 20 yards away?
