Texas Police Instructor Warns Antifa in "Public Service Announcement." The Left Goes Nuts.

The Antifa terror organization, for all its bluster and violence, has yet to face the full wrath of Texan gun-owners.

Last week, Texas police officer and academy instructor Phil Ryan wrote a warning to those that would damage statues throughout the state. Ryan points out that under Texas law, it'd be perfectly legal to use deadly force against an Antifa hoodlum bent on destroying historical effigies.

Here's the full post:

As a police officer and police academy instructor, I am posting this as a public service announcement.

In Texas, Criminal Mischief (Vandalism) is a crime. So, let’s say someone is defacing or destroying a monument or a statue, not that it happens, just a hypothetical. That would be Criminal Mischief under Texas Penal Code:

Sec. 28.03. CRIMINAL MISCHIEF.
(a) A person commits an offense if, without the effective consent of the owner:
(1) he intentionally or knowingly damages or destroys the tangible property of the owner;
(2) he intentionally or knowingly tampers with the tangible property of the owner and causes pecuniary loss or substantial inconvenience to the owner or a third person; or
(3) he intentionally or knowingly makes markings, including inscriptions, slogans, drawings, or paintings, on the tangible property of the owner.

Texas Penal Code Chapter 9, which are the laws concerning the use of force and deadly force to protect yourself, someone else, your property, or someone else’s property (could be state, county or municipal property (the peoples). In Chapter 9 under defense of property it says:

Sec. 9.43. PROTECTION OF THIRD PERSON’S PROPERTY.
A person is justified in using force or deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property of a third person if, under the circumstances as he reasonably believes them to be, the actor would be justified under Section 9.41 or 9.42 in using force or deadly force to protect his own land or property and:
(1) the actor reasonably believes the unlawful interference constitutes attempted or consummated theft of or criminal mischief to the tangible, movable property;

Chapter 9.41 states: PROTECTION OF ONE’S OWN PROPERTY.
(a) A person in lawful possession of land or tangible, movable property is justified in using force against another when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the force is immediately necessary to prevent or terminate the other’s trespass on the land or unlawful interference with the property (Criminal Mischief is unlawful interference with property).

Chapter 9.42 states: DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY.
A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:
(2) when and to the degree he reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:
(A) to prevent the other’s imminent commission of arson, burglary, robbery, aggravated robbery, theft during the nighttime, or criminal mischief during the nighttime (Night time is 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise).

Bottom line, if someone is destroying a monument or statue that isn’t theirs, you can defend it by force during the day with deadly force at night.

Just a little tip, from your Uncle Phil…”

Of course, leftist media sources immediately set off discrediting Ryan, much in the way they intentionally misrepresented James Damore as a misogynist.

Taking his post wildly out of context, leftist writers accused Ryan of:

  • "Urging" his followers to use deadly force against vandals, even though he doesn't.
  • Mentioning specifically Confederate statues to imply Ryan is a white supremacist, even though his post makes no mention of any specific type of monument.
  • "Endorsing" the "legal justification for murder", even though Ryan simply pointed out the law and made no comment for or against it.

Many of these outlets also implied that Ryan was not actually a police officer and even went so far as to suggest he was either impersonating one or had been previously fired.

Our research reveals that not only was Ryan a decorated member of the Texas Rangers, he's been stabbed and shot in the line of duty and served three terms as Sheriff of Wise County. Ryan was also responsible for the arrest of serial killer Henry Lee Lucas.

Ryan's post makes clear two important points:

  1. While Antifa aren't the only ones capable of violence, their actions are completely in the wrong.

  2. Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's a good idea.

So take note, Antifa. When you all decide to bring your violence and destruction to Texas, you're not getting away with it — Texans are cutting you a break because of human decency.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
