But just to be safe, I called the cops first. I talked to the officer for half an hour and he made his report, and he was actually really cool for a cop. He told me that it's illegal for him to tell me what TX law allows me to do to protect my property, but then told me three times to go look it up online. You gotta love TX laws. He said that there is a big crack problem on the island and that I could kick the shit out of crackheads if I needed to, but to watch out for angry neighbors with guns. What am I, chopped liver?
So it looks like I'm going hunting tonight.
