Thoughts? Would you have done the same?



David Barajas, Texas man, charged in fatal shooting of suspected drunk driver who killed his sons, authorities say

David Barajas

 / CBS Houston/Brazoria County Sheriff's Office

(CBS/AP) HOUSTON - Authorities said Monday that a Texas father was charged with murder in the fatal revenge shooting of a suspected drunk driver who killed two of his children in a car crash,  http://houston.cbslocal.com/2013/02/11/father-arrested-in-fatal-shooting-of-motorist-who-killed-sons/" rel="nofollow - CBS Houston  reports.

David Barajas, 31, and his sons, 12-year-old David Jr. and 11-year-old Caleb, were about 50 yards away from their Houston-area home on Dec. 7, 2012 when a car crashed into them. David Jr. died at the scene, while Caleb died later at a hospital.

Barajas suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to CBS Houston. His wife, Cindy, was in the truck when it was hit, along with the couple's 8-year-old daughter and 3-month-old son.

Barajas was driving with his family when their truck broke down near Alvin, about 30 miles southeast of Houston. He and his two sons attempted to push the truck when 20-year-old Jose Banda rear-ended their vehicle, CBS Houston reports.

The Brazoria County Sheriff's Department said Banda was intoxicated at the time of the crash. His blood alcohol concentration was reportedly at 0.175, above the legal limit, according to the station.

Neighbors said they heard gunshots minutes after the crash and Banda was later found shot in the head. He was flown to a medical center where he died of his injuries, CBS Houston reports. His death was ruled a homicide.

Brazoria County sheriff's investigator Dominick Sanders said Monday that witnesses told authorities they saw Barajas walk to his home right after the crash and then return a few minutes later and approach Banda's vehicle. Evidence showed one shot was fired, Sanders said.

"Every time we would pursue a lead, it always came back to Mr. Barajas," Sanders said. "We have numerous statements placing him there at the car in close proximity to the victim at the time the gunshot was fired."

Barajas was indicted for murder Friday and turned himself in Sunday. He was held Monday in the Brazoria County Jail on a $450,000 bond.

A search of Barajas' home found ammunition that is consistent with the bullet that killed Banda, but authorities have not located the weapon used in the shooting, Sanders said. He added that the case is "going to be much more difficult if we don't have a weapon."

Gunshot residue tests were done on both Barajas and Banda, and authorities are still waiting for those results, Sanders said.

Investigators also are awaiting DNA test results of some "biological material" that was found at the scene. Sanders declined to elaborate on the material that is being tested.

Can't say I blame him. They aren't harsh enough on drunk drivers.

I agree. I don't like that they get off with a slap on the wrist just because they happened not to maim or kill anyone the first time around.

I would want to do the same if someone had taken the lives of people I love all because they had a few too many and were too stupid to call for a ride or get a taxi.

It's sad that he'll go to jail for his grief though.

I am not going to say whether I feel like he was right for what he done. I will say that I understand and I ain't even mad at him.
 
That drunk driver took the lives of 2 of his babies.. I cannot imagine what he was feeling or what was going through his head at that time. That is something that didn't even have to happen.
 
Drunk drivers are not punished enough, especially when they take innocent lives behind their carelessness and selfishness.

I can't believe this doesn't happen more often. As much as people kill over bullshyt I can't believe people like George Zimmerman make it to trial.

We need to go back to this. People are really out here being reckless because the legal system is ass backward sometimes. Kill two kids driving drunk you get a man slaughter charge and do a little time in minimum security prison.

I also believe the jury will sympathize with him. Some of them will be parents. Imagine your babies being taken from you by some drunk jackass. His lawyer will play on their emotions. I def wouldn't find him guilty.

I wanted to do the same for the one who killed my mother. Fortunately, they died in the accident. I don't blame him one bit.

True.
 
It's not right.  But it's ok.  I think the same thing about child molesters. 
 
They would hate me on the jury.

this story confuses me.

they get hit... the father walks in the house and grabs a gun and shoots the man?
did he know he was drunk?

Basically. I literally shrugged when I read that he shot the drunk driver who just killed his child.


I hope the state loses the evidence before trial.

I wonder why I never feel like revenge murder would make me feel any better. In none of this scenarios.

I thought I was the only one who felt a little confused by this story.  Maybe its just not written well or something.


Anyway, his lawyer will probably plead extreme emotional distress but they are going to have to explain walking all the way home, walking back and then hiding the gun all while the wife and baby sat in the car and two dead kids on the road?  Very complicated.
