I can't speak for T-Rod, but I'll cop to being a Bleeding-Heart, Pinko-Commie Liberal in most respects myself,
and I say if you're fortunate enough to actually apprehend a thief, a little minor injury-inducing ass-kicking is definitely in order.
The problem with that, though, is that it's hard to catch the Bastards, so that makes locking your skis up a reasonable move.
Having lived in Texas for too long, I can tell you that you can only shoot thieves down there during the hours of darkness. During daylight, you can only beat their asses senseless.
Residential burglars, OTOH, can be shot dead 24/7 inside OR outside your home. You can even chase 'em down the street and shoot 'em.
Your home truly IS your castle in Tejas.....it's the only good thing about living there...
