It's less about being scared of the alleged 'boogie man' than it is about being realistic. Alot of things can happen when the average police response times between 5 and 10 minutes [http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/cvus/previous/cvus107.pdf].

I want to apologize for the childish actions of my fellow Texans that would setup and sign such a petition. Their actions do not reflect the wishes and nature of Texans as a whole. I wish they would go buy a Caribbean island (not sending them south...Mexico doesn't deserve that) and start their own 'country', if they feel they can run something like that. I would like to remind my fellow Texans that following the war for independence from Mexico we were barely a republic and really wanted to become a state, only staying a republic for about 10 years due to the United States wanting to avoid war with Mexico. It is important to note that US troops fought and died against Mexico to annex Texas ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Texas_(1845%E2%80%931860) ).
Not all Texans want what these jackasses want.
