Happy Donut Shooting
"I grabbed my telephone," Randal said, "He said, 'don't call police'. I say 'I gotta do something.'" Richard Lane responded by beating the lady. He then tried to steal her automobile.
Stanley Livingston, a neighbor, overheard the attack, and the 54 year old Texan grabbed his shotgun. Responding to the criminal assault, Livingston found his friend and neighbor in distress and a rifle pointed through the night at him by the masked man. Stanley Livingston raised his shotgun and stopped Richard Lane's criminal career and ended his despicable life with one well aimed blast. Police arrived minutes later to find a dead criminal with a BB gun. Richard Lane had an comprehensive criminal portfolio, including aggravated assault and aggravated robbery.
Fort Worth defense attorney Trey Loftin states it is unlikely Livingston will be charged. "We're a gun toting state. We have a lot of John Wayne in our blood. We're gonna shoot first and ask questions later," he says, "A man, in a mask with what looks like a rifle, has just robbed and beaten my neighbor, my friend, this little old lady, and now he's pulled the gun on me. I've got to shoot. Totally justified in doing so."
"If my neighbor no come, what is going [to] happen? I might die," says Chong Im Randle. Only one problem there Mrs. Randle. Stop counting on your neighbor. Buy your own gun and learn to use it.
Good shootin' Mr. Livingston!
