The sad thing is I highly doubt this stops his activities. If they are smart, which I know the law enforcement in Texas is, they'll be keeping tabs on the guy. I met my wife in Texas, and have visited the Fort Hood/Killeen/Copperas Cove area a lot; they do not play around down there. They still have laws allowing ranchers to kill cattle and horse rustlers if they catch them.
