Well, I would hope not.

A recording of the tape was played during a news conference Tuesday where the Lavaca County district attorney and sheriff announced that the father would not face charges.

In declining to indict the 23-year-old father in the June 9 killing of Jesus Mora Flores, a Lavaca County grand jury reached the same conclusion as investigators and many of the father's neighbors: He was authorized to use deadly force to protect his daughter.
Texas has some problems with cops and prosecutors, just like everywhere else, but can you imagine the reaction if they'd filed against him?
"That sign says I have the right to refuse service to anyone; so get your ass out of here and don't come back" would have been heard more than once, I think.
