The problem is they tried to use Texas justice to stop the crooks. For one man and his family living at the Landera apartment complex on Blanco, enough was enough. In the past eight months, several neighbors had their cars broken into or stolen. His family's apartment window had been shattered, and his car had been broken into or vandalized three times. "It's just tough to swallow something that you work so hard for to get taken away from you so easily," said the man, who didn't want to be identified. Early Tuesday morning, the thieves came back. They shattered his car's back window but took off. The man called the police, filed a report, but still had a bad feeling. "I just told my neighbor, maybe we should stay up, keep an eye on things tonight," he said. Three hours later, the thieves were back. "The driver's side guy got out, ran toward my vehicle," he said. The man ran outside and shot his gun at them five or six times. He injured one of the suspects, but he is not facing charges. "Texas law states you can protect your personal property, even if it's deadly force," the man said. Even so, he and his family were given an eviction notice. "We had three days to leave," he said. His lease says residents can't possess a gun or discharge a gun in the complex. But he believes it's an unfair clause in this case. "You're victimized and then on top of that, you're being kicked out on the street for protecting something that you have the right to protect," he said. The man says he can't move somewhere in only three days, nor can he afford it. The apartment complex management declined to comment.
