Machine gun them and the rest will learn not to do that ever again plus it'll rid society of a few pieces of trash that didn't need to be in it anyhow..........

Dang, republicans really really hate their fellow Texans/Americans don't they. Innocent people get arrested/convicted everyday. If they are in jail, most likely (but not always) they have not been convicted of a crime and are awaiting trial.
