If it wasn't parked illegally, would the owner have any legal grounds to be shooting at him? I mean, it WOULD technically be stealing his car.
No, it wouldn't be stealing, it would be towing. :confused: At most it would be a civil matter.

I lived in Houston for 2 years and those tow truck guys are insane assholes. Friend of mine got his truck towed because he was "unevenly parked within the yellow lines". According to Houston police there's nothing you can do about it accept pay the tow bill to get your vehicle back.
I don't blame them. I hate when people park like shit and waste a space. Or they think they deserve to park like that because they decide to buy a big ass truck.
Driver needs an AR to mow them down in self defense.

I know back in the early to mid 90's a repo man was shot and killed in Houston while doing a recovery. The guy who shot him simply said I thought someone was stealing my truck so I shot him... He walked.

i don't see how the owner has the right to shoot at him, what legal issues could he face?

I know its a job and he choose it, but i don't understand how the fuck the owner could just shoot at him. i'd be pissed and all but, taking a gun out and letting off 4 rounds?

he lifted that mofo fast as shit when the owner jumped in his truck and tried to back out of it.

I agree with you, but I was just pondering if the owner had any defense rights if her WERE parked LEGALLY.

While I hate towtruck drivers and all they stand for, that dumb gangbanger was in the wrong for just firing off his gun at the driver. A bunch of thugs were around him too you could tell.

shit i can't blame them. i have wanted to shoot some of those sons of bitches before as well.
For sure, I have seen tow truck drivers beat up people and actually move cars so that the cars will be in the fire lane and then tow them... This was about ten years ago living in apartments off Webb Chapel / Lombard area of Dallas..

Here in Columbus they are the same way. Complete fucking assholes. My car was towed from our car port at work. Mother fuckers towed it without seeking permission... Which they would have been getting permission from me! They still wanted to charge me half cause they towed it. Fuck them

Anyone can have one of those F350s with towing equipment to hook up a car and never leave the truck. Who is to say that guy wasnt stealing the truck?

In Texas, you have the right to defend your property.

Not if it's on public property. I deal with this little caveat on a daily basis with repossessing vehicles.

So what are you saying?

Your not allowed to protect your own property on public property?

Uh sorry man, that's, B.S. plane and simple, or I would be in jail right now for attacking a cop (in plain clothing) jacking with my truck in an apartment complex 18 years ago.

for one, when they first made contact the guy told him why he was there, how would the guy be defending his property? i have done both jobs, repo man and tow aways, most people only bitch about shit getting towed in certian occasions, until you go into your complex and a car is either parked in your spot or someone has your garage blocked, then you call.

i dont like tow aways i only lasted 6 months because it is a nasty business but not all drivers are bad ones. and for repos tuff shit if you dont like them, you dont wanna pay for your ride take the fucking bus you know why the wrecker is there
i have taken cars from yards, back yards, blocked in got them from in the garage in the parking garage, hell i have repoed a guys from the police emplyee parking lot.
we all have jobs to do some are better than others.
