Joe Horn Confronted Two Men Robbing His Neighbor’s Home 

Has the Media Given a ‘Free Pass’ to Joe Horn?

Which Law or Whose Version Will be Used to Decide?

The Story of Joe Horn Fires Up Debates

The 911 tape from the Joe Horn shootings.

“Move,” Horn can be heard saying on the tape. “You’re dead.”






Horn redialed 911 and told the dispatcher what he’d done.

“I had no choice,” he said, his voice shaking. “They came in the front yard with me, man. I had no choice. Get somebody over here quick.” [1]

Pasadena Capt. A.H. “Bud” Corbett said both men were shot in the back. [2]

It boils down to “choices” and “versions” of the truth.

What “choices” did Joe Horn have on that day, the day he shot two men to death in the front yard of his neighbor’s home?

I had no choice.

Was it true, that Joe “had no choice?”

Joe refused to answers any questions from the Houston Chronicle reporter instead relying on his lawyer, family, and friends to describe what kind of guy Joe is and to tell his “side” of what happened. The 911 tape tells another side, not unlike the great 1950 Japanese movie, Rashomon where a crime is committed and then retold from differing points of view.

There’s Joe’s attorney’s version, the police version, the autopsy which showed the two men were shot in the back and the 911 tape, the version of Joe speaking with the operator.
